Construction noise meter PCE-432-EKIT (Class 1) incl. outdoor noise level meter kit
Handheld sound level meter / Octave band filter / A, B, C and Z rating filter upgradeable / Fast, Slow and Pulse Evaluation / Data logger / USB

The construction noise meter PCE-432 is used to measure the noise on building sites. This construction noise meter meets the requirements of class 1 sound level meters. In addition to the analysis of the construction noise in octave band or optionally in 1/3 octave band, the construction noise meter is able to determine the exact position of the sound level meter via GPS. The measuring range of the construction noise meter extends from 25 ... 136 dbA at a construction noise frequency between 20 Hz and 12.5 kHz. The construction noise meter has various automatic measurement functions such as Leq, Lmax, Lmin, Lpeak ... For frequency evaluation, the basis of evaluation A, B, C and Z are always available as standard for the construction noise meter. The display is able to show the measured values of the construction noise meter PCE-432 numerically with bargraphs or graphically.

The highlight of the construction noise meter PCE-432-EKIT is the outdoor accessory. The measuring device is thus delivered in such a way that it can be installed and operated permanently or temporarily outdoors, i.e. directly on construction sites. The construction noise measuring kit consists of a waterproof plastic case, a wind and rain protection for the Class 1 measuring microphone, additional batteries and a corresponding charger for the batteries. With the help of additional batteries, the construction noise meter can easily measure and record the noise for several days on a building site.

The stored measurement data can be analyzed and evaluated after the construction noise measurement via the supplied software or other spreadsheet programs.
