dBadge2 / dBadge2 IS


Product Overview

Transmit sound level measurements through Bluetooth® 4.0 wireless connectivity to increase productivity—no need to stop working to download readings! Dose, status, level alerts and more can be accessed through the free Airwave app and sent directly to your Apple or Android enabled device. Casella's dBadge2 noise dosimeters capture every possible noise exposure related parameter in a single measurement run, and make it available for subsequent download and analysis. Email summary data, photographs, and even notes for review or inclusion in reports.

Ensure the correct hearing protection is chosen for each application and location. The measurements taken are in accordance with CFR 1910.95, ISO 9612:2009, and UK Guidance document L108. The LCD displays current noise levels in color-coded format for easy interpretation of alarm conditions at a glance. Use the preset alarm limits to adhere to OSHA, ISO, MSHA, and ACGIH guidelines, or set your own.

Each personal noise dosimeter comes with two mounting clips, one at the top and one at the bottom, for secure shoulder attachment and features a reliable and robust 1/2" diameter microphone with windscreen. Order a kit to get started and add additional units as needed to cover an entire fleet!
