The following explanation is how to convert the output voltage from the SR2200 into the sound pressure level (dB), when the MI8100 directional microphone is used with SR2200 sensor amplifier.
Measurement condition
MI8100 sensitivity: 30.41 dB re1 V/Pa at 1 kHz (From the laboratory data attached to the MI8100.)
SR2200 gain setting: 20 dB (10 to 60 dB, 10 dBstep eight switching) 
The output voltage value from the SR2200 is proportional to the sound pressure (= Pascal). The sound pressure level (dB) is logarithmic value, so when the voltage value is converted into sound pressure level, use the calculator and process the logarithmic calculation.
The sound pressure level (dB) is effective value. On the other hand, the time waveform which is outputted by the MI8100 via SR2200 is not effective value but instantaneous value. Therefore, value which converts the output voltage from the SR2200 into sound pressure level (dB) is considered to be a reference value. In addition, when the voltage output from the SR2200 are analyzed in the FFT analyzer, Y axis of FFT is displayed to be dB effective value, and the signal is correctly displayed as the pressure level (dB) by using the unit calibration function.
The MI8100 is directional microphone, so the measurement results are different from the nondirectional microphone such as a sound level meter.
Concept of conversion
When the MI8100 is used with the SR2200, conversion from output voltage (V) to sound pressure level (dB) is considered as follows. The "r" of "Vr" means effective value in the following explanations.
MI8100 directional microphone sensitivity
When sensitivity of the MI8100 "30.41 dB re.1 V/Pa at 1 kHz" means "When the frequency is 1 kHz and sound pressure is 1 Pa (sound pressure level: 94 dB), the output voltage becomes 30.41 dBVr (voltage)".
SR2200 microphone amplifier output voltage
When the gain of the SR2200 is set as 20 dB, the output voltage of SR2200 is 20 dB (10 times) amplified voltage of MI8100. So, when the sound pressure is 1 Pa (sound pressure level: 94 dB), the output voltage is 30.41 + 20 dB = 10.41 dBVr.
When the gain of the SR2200 is 20 dB, the voltage for sound pressure 1 Pa is 10.41 dBVr. Convert it into the voltage as follows;
Therefore, when frequency is 1 kHz and sound pressure is 1 Pa, the voltage output from the SR2200 is 0.0301 Vr.
Conversely, when output voltage from the SR2200 is 1 kHz and 0.301 Vr, conversion into the sound pressure level dB is as follows;
When output voltage from the SR2200 is 1 kHz and 0.0301 Vr, the sound pressure level is 74 dB.
The calculation formula which is organized above results is as follows which is set the gain as G (dB) and output voltage effective value as A (Vr) of the SR2200.

Instantaneous value and effective value
When the waveform is sine wave, the relation of half amplitude V and effective value A (Vr) is as follows;
When the instantaneous waveform is sine wave, from the formula (1);
When the waveform is sine wave, the sound pressure level dB value can be obtained with the formula (3) by converting half amplitude V which is read from the waveform. However, the voltage which is read from the complicate instantaneous waveform is not effective value, so the conversion into the sound pressure level dB with the formula (3) is considered as [the reference value which is obtained by the formula (3)].
To convert the output voltage from the SR2200 into the sound pressure level (dB) correctly, we recommend you to use the FFT Analyzer.
