Multifunction Acoustic Calibrator Type 4226 enables simulated free-field calibration of microphones, sound level meters and other related instruments. Type 4226 generates accurate and stable sound pressure with a frequency varying from 31.5 Hz to 16 kHz in octave steps, plus a signal at 12.5 kHz.
Using the coupler provided, the test signal can be applied to either ½-inch or ¼-inch microphones, or picked up from an electrical output. For ease of use, Type 4226 can also apply a very accurate inverse A-weighting correction.
An external generator can be connected to Type 4226 if a frequency sweep or semi-automatic test is desired.
