Sound and vibration specialist Brüel & Kjær has released the latest in its range of sound level meters. The B&K 2245 is a complete solution for basic noise measurements that was designed to be intuitive and versatile. It can be used as a standalone noise measurement device, or with a range of mobile apps, each tailored to assist with a specific job such as environmental noise measurement, exhaust noise level testing, or workplace noise. Each device can be licensed to more than one app to facilitate switching tasks.
The sound level meter’s robust rubberized body provides a safe and secure grip, and makes it dust- and water-resistant to IP55 and suitable for indoor and outdoor use. To keep it ready to use at all times and to protect measurement data, there is an optional smart docking station. This station is a high-speed charger that can also transfer stored data to a network, boosting ease of use and peace of mind. During development, Brüel & Kjær focused in particular on ease of use, as feedback from non-expert users indicated that simplicity and intuitive controls are one of the most important aspects of a sound level meter like the B&K 2245.
