Cirrus Research plc, the UK company which specialises in the design and development of noise measurement equipment, will be showcasing instruments from its new generation of leading edge ‘optimus’ sound level meters at this year’s Safety and Health Expo. They will be on stand Q50 in Hall 2, at the NEC, Birmingham from 11-13 May.
The first two models in the optimus range will be on show. Optimus red sound level meters are aimed specifically at the occupational and noise at work markets and were launched in January. With ergonomically designed cases, the range offers a choice of Class 1 and Class 2 accuracy, with optional data logging and real-time octave bands.
This year’s Expo will also see the first showcase of optimus green, which in addition to all the existing features of optimus red, also includes features for environmental noise monitoring. Perfect for Environmental Health and Safety managers, optimus green provides a one stop shop for both noise at work and environmental noise measurements.
Cirrus’ optimus sound level meters feature smart design and advanced technology, and set new standards for ease of use, flexibility and practicality.
James Tingay, group marketing manager for Cirrus , said: ‘The research we undertook at the beginning of this project was clear: noise measurement and health & safety professionals are looking for sound measurement equipment which is easy to use, flexible and upgradeable. Our new optimus range meets their requirements exactly.’
‘It takes just three button presses to make a noise measurement using our new optimus meter: ‘on’, ‘calibrate’ and ‘start’. The instrument then takes all the necessary measurements simultaneously before displaying the results on a large, easy to read colour OLED display. New software allows voice tags to be recorded for future reference. As for on-going flexibility, optimus users will be able to upgrade their instrument, at any time in the future, should their needs change.’
