Instruction Sheet
Micromate® Sound Level Microphone
*Instruction sheets are available in additional languages at www.Instantel.com
Introduction
The Sound Level Microphone for Micromate, also called a noise
microphone, can perform unattended monitoring of noise, such as
building activities, construction, traffic, and mining operations. It is
now possible to combine noise and vibration monitoring on the same
unit, making the Micromate a cost effective and flexible monitor for
these applications. The microphone ships with a microphone stand and
windscreen.
The Instantel® Sound Level Microphone for the Micromate meets the
requirements for IEC 61672 Class 1, which includes A and C weighted
specifications. It has a measuring range from 30 to 140 dB with a Fast or
Slow response. The record mode can be set to Manual trigger, Waveform
(records up to 90 seconds once a preset trigger level has been exceeded),
Histogram (with intervals from 2 seconds to 30 minutes) or HistogramCombo (combining histogram and waveform monitoring at the same
time).
The microphone connects directly to the Microphone port of the
Micromate. This microphone can be connected directly to the unit or
using an extension cable up to 75 meters (250 feet) long.
