doseBadge, the original wireless noise dosimeter

05 September 2008

Cirrus Research plc, specialist in design and development of noise measurement equipment, is experiencing strong growth in demand for its ‘doseBadge’ range of wireless noise dosimeters.

Sales are strong right across the board, with particular interest from industry sectors looking for a rugged, durable and reliable personal noise measurement solution.

'The doseBadge is unique in the market place', said James Tingay, of Cirrus Research plc. 'It’s robust, yet lightweight metal construction and self-contained design, with no external controls, fragile displays, cables or microphones, has resulted in a system which can withstand the most hostile of working environments.'

He continued: 'The wearer can’t break it by knocking or dropping it. They can’t catch it on anything, or disconnect it from its power supply. In fact its operation cannot be impeded in anyway, either deliberately or accidentally. The result is that doseBadges can be used to measure and record occupational noise exposure, assess the risk of noise induced hearing loss and help organisations comply with noise at work regulations, with total reliability, year after year.'

The doseBadge system is usually supplied as a complete measurement kit, including doseBadges, a reader unit, an ‘intelligent’ charger with a charge point for each doseBadge, a power supply and software, contained in a robust carrying case. Each doseBadge contains a high performance, rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery, an internal microphone and an electronic system which measures and logs the noise data. This is housed in a robust metal case which protects the microphone and electronics.
The doseBadge is controlled via an infra-red link, by a reader unit with a large, easy to read display. Software is supplied as standard to allow the user to configure the system, download data and produce measurement reports. doseBadges can be configured to meet any worldwide requirement or regulation including the EU Physical Agents (Noise) Directive or the OSHA Regulations.

As with all Cirrus equipment, the doseBadge is covered by Cirrus’ industry leading 12 year warranty. This provides an initial 24-month warranty which can be extended up to 12 years if the equipment is serviced and recalibrated by Cirrus every 12 months. Free backup and support, including license-free software and updates, is provided with every Cirrus noise measurement product.

Cirrus Research plc has over 30 years experience of the design and manufacture of noise measurement instruments. During that time, the company has developed a reputation for producing robust, practical equipment which can perform in real situations. In 1991 Cirrus Research plc was awarded the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement, with noise measurement equipment exported to over 50 countries worldwide. Cirrus operates to the internationally recognised quality standard ISO 9001:2000.
