Wireless IS personal noise dosimeter

08 March 2016

Casella has developed what it believes to be the world's first wireless noise dosimeter, with Intrinsic Safety (IS) certification for use in industries that operate in highly explosive environments.

The Casella dBadge2 is designed for use in explosive environments and is certified Intrinsically Safe – incapable of igniting an explosion even under fault conditions. It is certified for Class I, Zone 0 hazardous locations, where high concentrations of flammable gases, vapours or dust is present continuously or for long periods of time under normal operating conditions.

Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, the dBadge2 enables users to wirelessly control multiple units from distances of up to 100ft  – including starting, pausing or stopping noise sampling – even without a clear line of sight between devices. They can then transmit real-time noise exposure data via their IS approved mobile devices from hazardous zones to off-site managers, enhancing productivity while lowering risk. 

The dosimeter is said to provide the detail needed to measure hazardous location noise environments and prescribe best practice solutions for preservation of hearing health, all without interrupting the employee or overall workflow.
