Barriers to accurately assessing the noise exposure of workers are removed with the innovative Model 22 doseBadge system.
Traditional systems rely on large, cumbersome units using cables and separate microphones which can easily become damaged or
tangled in machinery.
The revolutionary doseBadge is a self-contained noise measurement device that has no cables, display or controls, making it an
ideal solution for noise dosimetry because units can't be tampered with during measurements.
doseBadges communicate with an infra-red Reader Unit - similar technology to a television remote control. The Reader Unit
controls the doseBadge to program, calibrate, start/stop, download and store measurements.
All key measurement parameters can be viewed on the large clear
backlit screen of the Reader Unit, which also displays a time history
graph of workers' daily noise exposure.
The Reader Unit contains an integral acoustic calibrator allowing the doseBadge to be
calibrated prior to and following each measurement in accordance with
Worldwide Occupational or Industrial Noise Regulations require the typical daily exposure of
an individual worker to be determined. The doseBadge automatically achieves this by
computing the Daily Exposure for European Legislation or the Time Weighted Average for US
Noise dosimetry measurements are only the beginning, our effective, user friendly software
package dBLink3 allows users to quickly analyse and transform data into informative report
formats, simplifying a potentially complex and time consuming process.
Full 'time history' information allows you to determine when key noise problems occur
during a workers' day. The additional 'C' weighted Peak Time History allows you to fully assess
risks from impulsive noise in the workplace.
The Model 22 doseBadge systems are ideal for most applications as the preferred method
of calculating personal daily noise exposures to ensure compliance with International
It is especially suitable for applications where workers are regularly moving from location
to location, working with moving machinery, in difficult to reach areas, vehicle cabins,
shift work or with unpredictable work patterns.
Typical industries include: Manufacturing, Construction, Chemical, Mining,
Transportation, Fire and Police, Highway Maintenance, Food, Entertainment and also
Our doseBadge is rechargeable, making it more economical,
and designed to run for an entire shift. The Reader Unit is used
to setup and calibrate one or more doseBadges prior to use,
and also to start the measurement.
The doseBadge unit logs and stores data throughout the
period of measurement, and a blue indicator shows when the
unit is running. At the end of the measurement, data is
downloaded from the doseBadge into the Reader Unit through
the infra-red link, with the Reader Unit displaying
The Model 22 doseBadge can be configured to meet a wide
range of Occupational Noise Regulations and has been
designed to meet the requirements of the EU Physical Agents
(Noise) Directive as well as the requirements of OSHA. In
addition to the overall noise levels the doseBadge also stores a
one-minute sample and one-minute Peak(C) measurement.
which will present the commonly used noise parameters, or a
'customised', user-defined setup can be programmed into the
doseBadge by the Reader Unit.
Overall Measurement Information
Overall Measurement Information data contains the most
important and commonly used noise parameters. This data
contains the Measurement Start Time and Date, Run Time,
Calibration Information, Highest Peak(C) Level, 115dB(A)
Maximum Sound Level Exceedence, Overload and
When set to the 3dB Exchange Rate, the doseBadge Overall
Measurement Information contains Leq, LEX,8h (LEP,d), LAE
(SEL), Exposure & Estimated Exposure in Pa2h, % Noise Dose
and Estimated % Noise Dose.
When the doseBadge is configured to either 4dB or 5dB
Exchange Rates, the Overall Measurement Information contains
the LAVG, TWA, % Noise Dose and the Estimated % Noise Dose.
If the Time Weighting is set to Slow, or a Threshold is set, with
any exchange rate (3dB, 4dB or 5dB) the Overall Measurement
Information will be set to LAVG, TWA, % Noise Dose and the
Estimated % Noise Dose.
Time History Data
The doseBadge measures and logs noise levels during the
measurement period. In addition to the overall noise levels,
such as Leq or TWA, the instrument also logs a Time History or
When the doseBadge is configured to 3dB (Q=3) with no Time
Weighting or Threshold, this Time History data is stored as oneminute
LAeq samples. For other configurations, the Time
History data is stored as LAVG.
At the same time, the
doseBadge also stores
the highest Peak(C)
level and the Battery
level every minute. This
data is available with
the Time History data
provided by using the
