(4) Hold the instrument comfortably in hand or fix on tripod and
point the microphone at the suspected noise source, the
sound pressure level will be displayed.
(5) When MAX (maximum hold) mode is chosen. The instrument
captures and holds the maximum noise level for a long period
using any of the time weightings and ranges.
(6) When HOLD (data hold ) mode is chosen.The hold function
freezes the reading in the display. Press the HOLD button
momentarily to activate or to exit the HOLD function
(7) Turn OFF the instrument and remove battery when not in use
This unit conforms to the IEC651 type 2, ANSI S1.4 type 2 for
Sound Level Meters.
This Sound Level Meter has been designed to meet
measurement requirements of safety engineers, health and
industrial safety offices and sound quality control in various
® Ranges from 30dB to 130dB at frequencies between 31.5Hz
and 8 KHz.
® Display with 0.1dB steps on a 4-digits LCD.

Supplied with 9V battery, storage case and instruction manual.
To achieve more accurate measurement, use an extension
cable to separate the microphone from the main body so that
the effect of unexpected sound reflection can be eliminated.
Calibrate the instrument before use if it has not been used for
a long time or if the last operation was in bad environmental
Do not store or operate the instrument at high temperatures
or in high humidity.
Keep microphone dry and avoid severe vibration.
Please take the battery and keep the instrument in low
humidity environment. When not in use.
VII. Taking Measurements
Open battery cover and insert a 9 volt battery into the battery
Turn on power and select the desired response time and
weighting. If the sound source consists of short bursts or only
catches the peak sound level, set the response time to FAST.
To measure average sound, use the slow setting.
Select A- weighting for measuring general noise sound level
and C-weighting for measuring the sound level of acoustic
(3) Select desired level
MAX/ Hold button
The MAX Hold position is used to measure the maximum level of
sound. The maximum measured level is updated continuously.
Pressing the button again will release the hold and allow a
further measurement.
Data Hold button: Press and hold the button for over 2
second to turn the data hold function on or off.
The hold function freezes the reading in the display.
