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-1411||●Sound level meter (Class 2) for product testing
and measuring the sound level generated from machines etc.
●High-performance and cost-effective model
●Sound level meter (Class 2) for
measuring the working environment and environmental noise
●Sound level meter
(Class 1) for sound analysis and product testing.
Simultaneous measurements of seven sound items including equivalent continuous sound level (Leq) and displays of measurement results to be selected.
Essential seven sound items for sound measurement including equivalent continuous sound level (Leq) can be measured at the same time, and also displayed to be selected. The LA series sound level meters greatly help the effective sound level measurement without any miss-measurement.
|•||Lp||time-weighted sound level|
|•||Leq||time-average sound level (equivalent continuous sound level)|
|•||LE||sound exposure level|
|•||Lmax||maximum time-weighted sound level|
|•||Lmin||minimum time-weighted sound level|
|•||Lpeak||peak sound level|
|•||LＮ||percentile sound pressure level|
(Technical terms given here are based on IEC standards.)
Microphone can be separated from the main unit of sound level meter by connecting several exclusive coaxial cable(s).
Microphone can be separated from the main unit of sound level meter by connecting several exclusive coaxial cable(s). It enables measurement of great distance away.
Simple and easy data processing
Connecting the main unit of sound
level meter with Windows-based PC via RS-232C or USB
cable, the LA series can transfer the obtained
measurement data to the PC easily and quickly, also
can be operated and controlled remotely from PC with
a software (user preparation).
* LA-1411 is not able to be connected to USB and RS-232C.

SC-3120 Sound calibrator (Class 2)/ SC-2500 Sound calibrator (Class 1)/ SC-2120A Sound calibrator (Class 2)
The SC-3120, SC-2500 and SC-2120A are sound calibrators which are indispensable for sound measurement, conforming to JIS C1515:2004 ( and SC-2500 / IEC 60942:2017). The SC-3120 is Class 1/C piston-phone type and outputted sound pressure at 250 Hz and 114 dB. The SC-2500 is Class 1 type sound calibrator with 1000 Hz and 114 dB output. It uses the sound pressure feedback control method to control fluctuations in sound pressure caused by static pressure to generate a stable sound pressure even if the operating environment changes. SC-3120 and SC-2500 are recommended sound calibrator for LA-1411/1441/4441. The SC-2120A is Class 2 speaker type sound calibrator with 1 kHz and 94 dB output.
