LA-1411,LA-144A,LA-4441A Sound level meter

Three models of sound level meter LA-1411/1441A(Class 2) and LA-4441A (Class 1) are applicable to IEC 61672-1:2013, JIS C 1509-1:2017. The all models can perform simultaneous measurement of seven sound parameters including equivalent continuous sound level without adjusting the level range corresponding to the sound fluctuation and display the selected parameters.

The microphone is able to be used away from the main unit of sound level meter by using exclusive coaxial cable(s). Featuring curve-shaped body with minimum affects from sound reflection, easy-to-read and intuitive operating menu etc., our new sound level meters have greatly improved more than ever easier as ergonomically designed interface.

Moreover, LA-1441A/4441A sound level meters can transfer the measurement result to a PC with simple and quick operation via RS-232C or USB interface. The sound level meter can be controlled remotely from PC using software (user preparation).

LA-0141 Comparator output function

Outline This optional function outputs the signal when value exceeds the setting value. Useful for the determination of sound level under measurement.
Set comparison value 40.0 to 130.0 dB(in increment of 0.1 dB)
Comparison item Lmax or Lpeak
Delay time 0 ms, 100 ms, 1 s, 5 s
It can be used for the determination only when the measured value keeps exceeding against the setting value. Error-determination caused from single-shot sound can be avoided. When HOLD setting is manual, setting to delay conditions is automatically deactivated.
Hold time 100 ms, 1 s, 5 s, manual
It is a time period to hold output signal even though measured value goes below the setting value. When the operating mode is manual, output signal is held until next measurement starts.
Output logic Negative or positive
Output format Open collector
(withstand voltage: +3 to +24 VDC, current: 50 mA or less)

Recommended calibrators (SC-2600/2500A/2120A)  
Outline They are sound calibrators which are essential for sound measurement, conforming to JIS C1515/IEC 60942.
