    How a sound level meter works?

    The sound is converted into electrical signals by the microphone, and then the impedance is transformed by the preamplifier to match the microphone and the attenuator. The amplifier adds the output signal to the weighting network, performs frequency weighting on the signal (or external filter), and then amplifies the signal to a certain amplitude through the attenuator and amplifier, and sends it to the rms detector (or external press). Level recorder), the value of the noise sound level is given on the indicator head.

    In order to simulate the different sensitivities of human hearing at different frequencies (20Hz-20KHz), there is a network in the sound level meter that can simulate the auditory characteristics of the human ear and correct the electrical signal to a similar value to the sense of hearing. It's called a weighted network.

    The sound pressure level measured by the weighting network is no longer the objective physical sound pressure level (called linear sound pressure level), but the sound pressure level corrected by the sense of hearing, which is called weighted sound level or noise level.

    Since people have different perceptions of noise in each frequency band, they are sensitive to the intermediate frequency Z of about 3 kHz, but less to low frequency and high frequency. Therefore, the unweighted signal-to-noise ratio may not be as good as the human ear's subjective perception of the noise level. match. How to integrate the measured value with the subjective sense of hearing? So there is an equalization network, or a weighting network, which moderately attenuates both low and high frequencies, so that the middle frequency is more prominent.

    This weighting network is connected between the equipment under test and the measuring instrument, so the influence of the IF noise of the equipment will be "amplified" by the network, in other words, the IF noise that has the greatest impact on the sense of hearing is given a higher weight, the measured signal-to-noise ratio at this time is called the weighted signal-to-noise ratio, which can more truly reflect people's subjective sense of hearing.

    Why do you need to calibrate the sound level meter before using it?

    The sound level meter measurement is to convert the vibration wave signal of the metal diaphragm of the microphone (microphone head) at the front of the sound level meter into an electrical signal through the vibration wave caused by the sound signal (sound wave), and then pass through the special weighting network and circuit. After the operational amplification, the noise decibel value is displayed by digital or meter.

    The quality of the air is unstable. For example, the temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, etc. of the air will change at any time due to the influence of the environment and other factors. In this way, it is necessary to ensure the accuracy of the air vibration wave signal received by the metal diaphragm of the microphone. Adjust the sensitivity of the microphone accordingly.

    The process of adjusting the sensitivity of the microphone is to calibrate the sound level meter.

    How to use a sound level meter?

    1. The choice of the environment where the sound level meter is used: Choose a representative test site. The sound level meter should be off the ground and away from the wall to reduce the additional impact of the reflected sound from the ground and the wall.
    2. Weather conditions require that the sound level meter should keep the microphone diaphragm clean when there is no rain or snow, and a wind cover must be added to the wind above level three (to avoid wind noise interference), and the measurement should be stopped for strong winds above level 5.
    3. Open the sound level meter carrying case, take out the sound level meter, and put on the sensor.
    4. Put the sound level meter in the measurement state, check the battery, and then calibrate the sound level meter.
    5. Compare the table (reference for common environmental sound levels) and adjust the measurement range.
    6. The following can use fast (measure the instantaneous value of the environment with large changes in sound pressure level), slow (measure the average value in the environment with little change in sound pressure level), pulse (measure pulse sound source), filter (Measure the sound level of the specified frequency band) various functions for measurement.
    7. Record data as required, and it can also be connected to a printer or other computer terminals for automatic collection. Organize the equipment and return it to the designated place.

    The main application areas of sound level meters

    The sound level meter is a basic instrument for measuring noise. It is an electronic instrument. The sound level meter is generally composed of a condenser microphone, a preamplifier, an attenuator, an amplifier, a frequency weighting network, and an effective value indicating meter. According to the sensitivity of sound level meters, they can be divided into two categories. One is ordinary sound level meters,  the other is precision sound level meters. According to the purpose of sound level meters, they can also be divided into two categories: one is used to measure stability. State noise, one type is used to measure unstable noise and impulse noise.

    The digital detection technology adopted by the sound level meter greatly improves the stability and reliability of the instrument. The sound level meter has the advantages of simple operation and convenient use; it has the characteristics of large dynamic range, large-screen LCD digital display, automatic measurement and storage of various data, etc.

    The sound level meter can be widely used for industrial noise measurement and environmental noise measurement of various machines, vehicles, ships, electrical appliances, etc. It is suitable for factories and enterprises, architectural design, environmental protection, labor and health, transportation, teaching, medical and health, scientific research and other departments.

    Calibration and verification method of sound level meter

    1. After the sound level meter is turned on, there will be four options: measure, set, recall, and calibrate. After Z - an option is the calibration option, just move the cursor to this option.
    2. After entering the calibration page, there will still be four options: view, calibrate, apply, and modify. Place the cursor on the second option, calibration option, and then select the calibration option.
    3. Insert the sensor of the sound level meter into the upgrade calibrator, and then turn on the switch of the calibrator, the calibrator will emit a standard sound level, - when it is ready, press the calibration start, and the instrument can be automatically calibrated.
    4. When the data displayed by the sound level meter reaches 93.8dB(A), the instrument is calibrated.


    Sound Level Meter Calibration Considerations

    1. Before calibrating, read the instructions of the article to master the operation method and common problems of the instrument.
    2. The instrument should be prevented from being placed in areas with high temperature, wet and cold, waste water, dust, gas containing sulfuric acid, high alkali content or organic chemical vapor.
    3. Install the rechargeable battery or external power supply, pay attention to the optical rotation, and do not connect it in reverse. Long-term rechargeable batteries should not be selected to prevent liquid leakage from damaging the instrument.
    4. Do not disassemble and assemble the microphone to avoid throwing and falling, and place it securely when not needed.
    5. Do not disassemble the instrument without permission. If the instrument is abnormal, it should be sent to the maintenance company or factory for maintenance.
    6. During the whole process of application, an undervoltage protection alarm appears on the LCD screen, and the battery should be replaced immediately.
    7. Before the sound level meter measurement, start the heating for 2 minutes, and heat it for 5 to 10 minutes in wet and cold weather.

    Types of sound level meters

    According to the sensitivity of the whole sound level meter, there are two types of sound level meter classification: one is the ordinary sound level meter, which does not require much microphone. The dynamic range and frequency response flat range are relatively narrow, and bandpass filters are generally not used in combination; the other type is precision sound level meters, whose microphones require wide frequency response, high sensitivity, and good long-term stability. This kind of band-pass filter is used together, the output of the amplifier can be directly connected with the level recorder and tape recorder, and the noise signal can be displayed or stored. If the microphone of the precision sound level meter is removed, replaced with an input converter and connected to an accelerometer, it becomes a vibrometer that can be used for vibration measurement.

    How to Choose a Sound Level Meter?

    1. Spectrum analysis function

    In order to perform spectrum analysis on noise, the spectrum analysis function needs to be selected. Octave and 1/3-octave spectral analysis are the most used in acoustic measurements. In the past, spectrum analysis was realized by analog filters, but now most of them use digital technology to conduct real-time spectrum analysis through digital filters.

    2. Accuracy class

    Instrument Accuracy Class: Class 1 and Class 2.

    3. Price

    When purchasing a sound level meter, you need to consider the price range of the product. The price of a sound level meter depends on many factors, including functionality, accuracy rating, number of channels, storage capacity, and more.

    4. Calibration

    In the process of use, it is necessary to use a sound calibrator for sound calibration. The sound calibrator is often used as a supporting instrument of the sound level meter and becomes an integral part of the instrument. There are two kinds of sound calibrators: piston sounder and sound level calibrator. The piston sounder produces 250Hz, 124dB sound pressure level, and the accuracy level is 1 or 0; the sound level calibrator produces 1000Hz, 94dB sound pressure level, and the accuracy Level 2 or 1. Class 1 should be calibrated with a class 1 or class 0 sound calibrator, and class 2 should be calibrated with a class 2 or class 1 sound calibrator.

    5. Measuring range

    The measurement range sometimes needs to consider its upper measurement limit in order to measure high sound pressure levels, such as 140dB, or even more than 160dB; sometimes it needs to consider its lower measurement limit, in order to measure low sound pressure levels, such as below 20dB, usually the measurement of sound level meters The range is in the 25dB to 130dB range.

    6. Number of channels

    The general sound level meter has only 1 channel and only measures 1 channel sound pressure level. Sometimes it is necessary to measure multi-channel sound pressure level, and it is necessary to use multi-channel. For example, the measurement of sound intensity level requires 2 channels, and the measurement of sound power level requires more channels. The multi-channel sound level meter greatly expands the use of the instrument.

    7. Function

    The measurement function is the most important indicator, it not only determines the application scope of the instrument, but also has the greatest relationship with the price of the instrument. According to the type of the measured signal, for the steady-state noise signal, the function of this instrument only needs to measure the instantaneous sound pressure level; for the measurement of the non-steady-state signal, it is generally required to measure the time-averaged sound level or the equivalent sound level. For analysis, choose a noise spectrum analyzer.

    8. Interface

    The current sound level meters generally contain RS232, USB and other interfaces, which are used to connect to micro-printers or computers, and users can choose according to the test needs.
