The XL2-TA Sound Level Meter has received class 1 type-approval from the Eidgenössischen Institut für Metrologie METAS in Switzerland. The type approved class 1 sound level meter is therefore suitable for environmental noise, occupational health and sound insulation applications in Switzerland where the measurements are required to be certified.
The type approval certificate confirms, that the XL2-TA (in combination with the M2230 measurement microphone and the ASD Cable) offers full compliance with the class 1 sound level meter requirements in accordance with the standards IEC 61672 and IEC 61260. The XL2-TA offers certified spectral measurements in octave and third-octave resolution.
XL2-TA for Certified Noise Measurements
Philipp Schwizer, CEO of NTi Audio AG, comments: "The METAS type approval is another important milestone for XL2 users in Switzerland as it confirms the already-perceived value of the XL2 – being among the most precise Acoustic Analyzers worldwide." The M2230 Measurement Microphone connects with the ASD Cable to the XL2-TA, thus forming the configuration for sound level measurements with class 1 accuracy. The configuration, with the microphone detached from the XL2-TA, allows the user to monitor the level readings on the instrument display, while class 1 measurements are carried out. The NTi Audio Precision Calibrator completes the portable measurement kit offered in the compact system case.
XL2 with Type Approval Option forms XL2-TA
The XL2-TA Sound Level Meter is formed by adding the Type Approval Option to any XL2 Analyzer. All customers may upgrade their XL2 Analyzers to a type approved XL2-TA by installing the Type Approval Option and the certified firmware V2.52. Contact your local NTi Audio partner for the upgrade.
