Health & Safety

Extech Instruments, one of the worlds largest suppliers of test equipment and portable printers, offers its SL120 sound level monitor and alarm to maintain safe noise levels. Designed to examine decibel levels and alert users when they exceed pre-set limits, the ANSI Type 2 SL120 is ideally suited for industrial environments.

As a stand-alone device or wall mounted in factories, plants, refineries, or any other industry where noise level is a concern, Extechs SL120 can be strategically placed to monitor noise levels for entire areas. The SL120s microphone is also detachable and can be remotely located using the optional microphone cable. The SL120s large LCD display allows it to be easily read from distances of greater than 30 feet and its unique alarm system indicates when quiet is needed through the use of relay modules which will illuminate large warning signs and remote noise indicators. With a programmable high limit set point between 30 and 130dbs, the SL120 is extremely flexible and settings can be quickly changed to meet varying needs. Certificates of Traceability to NIST are available.

Highly effective in maintaining proper noise levels, the SL120 can also assist in eliminating noise factors by recording the time and date of maximum decibel level occurrences. The SL120 also features rear panel controls to prevent unauthorized programming, a clock display, and programmable start-stop time for extended battery life.
