B&K 2245 Sound Level Meter is designed to be used when and where you have a job to do. Robust and dust- and water-resistant to IP55, this sound level meter (SLM) can be used in the field surrounded by grit, grime or inclement weather. But just because the SLM can take it, doesn’t mean that you need to. The SLM can connect to your mobile phone via Wi-Fi® and be operated away from the sound field via an unparalleled mobile-app control interface. This means that the unit can be placed for measurement and fully controlled from a more convenient location, just as if you were standing with the SLM in hand.
B&K 2245 Sound Level Meters come with the Noise Partner app pre-installed. This app can be used with minimal training and is perfect for simple broadband measurements, general-purpose sound pressure level measurements, and basic occupational, product and environmental noise measurements.
Once the accompanying Noise Partner app is downloaded to your phone from the App Store®, all Noise Partner capabilities can be wirelessly controlled from that phone. Via the app interface, pictures, text and voice notes, and videos can be embedded with the measurements.
When the PC app has been downloaded and installed and the measurement is finished, your data can be transferred to the PC, wirelessly or with the supplied USB cable. Noise Partner PC software is preconfigured with the tools needed for storing, reviewing and reporting your data.
