The Sound Level Meter measures sound level in decibels.
The Sound Level Meter is used to measure sound level in decibels (dB). An output port on the meter records sound level data. A switch on the meter is used to select dBA or dBC weighting. The Sound Level Meter also has an LCD panel to use it as a stand-alone device. A dB range switch and a response switch provide flexibility in the standalone mode.
