Example of Noise Measurement Data for an Arterial Highway
Blue: Equivalent continuous A-weighted sound pressure level (Laeq)
Green: Single-shot sound exposure level (Lae)


This software analyzes the 1/1 and 1/3 octave bands for 2 - 32 channels (2 - 64 channels when two units are connected ) in real-time from 0.5 to 20 kHz. The filter is compatible with the IEC, JIS, and ANSI standards. The equivalent continuous A-weighted sound pressure level (Laeq) and the single-shot sound exposure level (Lae) are calculated simultaneously by setting measurement time. Variations in level (time series) for each band can be saved for up to 2,000 points.
The software runs under Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 (32-bit version only). Functionality can be expanded to rotation and tracking analysis with the real-time octave band by adding the optional software DS-0324 and DS-0322.


* The equivalent continuous A-weighted sound pressure level is an average level obtained by dividing the total level for duration t by t. The single-shot sound exposure level is a value obtained by converting the duration t level to the level for a duration of one second. Real-time octave analysis

Real-time octave analysis requires frequency analysis when developing measures to deal with noise. Octave analysis has been employed for noise analysis for a considerable time. An octave is a frequency ratio of 1:2, i.e. it is twice the frequency.

The human ear hears equal ratios of frequencies. An octave band series is therefore standardized relative to 1 kHz, and the sound pressure level for each band found with a band pass filter in accordance with the standard. The 1/1 octave band is the octave band relative to 1 kHz. The 1/3 octave band is obtained by dividing the 1/1 octave band into three.
