CEL-350 dBadge Personal Noise Dosimeter
Available from Casella CEL, Inc
The CEL-350 family of badge style personal noise dosimeters allow the user to collect noise exposure measurements on workers for OSHA purposes to ensure compliance with the legal requirements. The CEL-350 dBadge does not need to be preconfigured as it measures all of the noise parameters in every run. This means that a couple of key presses will calibrate the unit and start a new measurement straight after switching it on. Noise doses are collected with the 5 and 3 dB exchange rates so all OSHA and ACGIH/NIOSH requirements can be met in every run. The all digital design ensures consistent and reliable operation without the drifting that can occur in some older analog designs. Time history profile recording is carried out at 1 minute intervals to store a picture of how the noise levels changed during the measurement. This is particularly useful for problem solving and finding out when the noisiest time of the day was. A companion software package called Casella Insight stores the downloaded results in a database for reviewing and reporting. CEL-350 dBadges are supplied in kits of up to 12 dosimeters plus the necessary chargers, power supplies, software and infra red interface to communicate with the computer.
