Sound Level Meters
I need to perform some sound level readings at an industrial facility
and am looking for a good logging octave-band recorder. I'd appreciate
The equipment must be capable of handling the following bands 20-75,
75-150, 150-300, 300-600, 600-1200, 1200-2400, 2400-4800, and 4800 and
above. The equipment must ALSO be compliant with the ANSI standards for
Sound Level Meter Sl4-1971 and for Octave Band Filter Sets SL11-1966,
R1971. I realize these standards are out of date, but those are the ones
I have to be sure the equipment complies with, so if anyone knows how
those earlier standards relate to ANSI Type 1, 2 etc. it would be
Also, recommendations for companies in the USA who rent such equipment
would be greatly appreciated (as in, if you had a particularly GOOD or
BAD experience with a certain company, this would be helpful to know).
A final question is with regard to calibration of the equipment -- are
they self-calibrating, or is there a calibration test-set that one can
purchase to ensure the equipment is in spec.
Thanks in advance for any information that folks can provide.
