Short term noise monitoring designed to work the way consultants need it to
February 19, 2014 (Newswire) - Noise consultants - performing surveys, complaint assessment or compliance monitoring - no longer have to choose between buying expensive equipment or turning down work, with a new subscription-based service called Noise Sentinel On Demand.
Investing in brand new equipment for one project is not viable, especially as it may not be used on a regular basis and can quickly become outdated. To overcome this, Brüel & Kjær designed Noise Sentinel On Demand, which is ideal for short term noise monitoring projects, including spot surveys or compliance monitoring for short construction projects.
Noise Sentinel is a web based system, that displays real time noise, alerts the operator to any threshold exceedances and delivers regular noise compliance reports.
Consultants can order the service online and everything needed for the job is delivered, so they can start measuring straightaway. The cloud based service makes the data immediately accessible from anywhere over the internet. When the monitoring project is complete, the equipment is returned, but the user can still access the measurement data.
Noise Sentinel On Demand is based on Brüel & Kjær 's award winning Noise Sentinel, designed for permanent or long-term noise monitoring. The technology has been used over several years for long-term tunnelling and construction projects, as well as other noisy applications such as mines, ports, industrial premises and entertainment venues all over the world.
