Pulsar Nova Sound Level Meter Receives PTB Accolade for High Reliability


Pulsar Instruments Plc, leading manufacturer of occupational noise measurement products, has announced that its Model 45 Class 1 Sound Level Meter from its flagship Nova series has received regulatory type approval from the Physikalisch- Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).  The German National Metrology Institute (PTB) is the highest federal authority and research institute for science and technology.  It is a highly respected and recognised authority around the world in the verification of correct and reliable measurements.  Having passed a series of gruelling tests, the Nova Model 45 Sound Level Meter was awarded its certificate and now belongs to an exclusive club of just a few meters officially recognised for their high accuracy against international standards.  This is a tremendous recognition for a product that was launched only a few years ago.

Pulsar Nova has enjoyed, in recent years, strong commercial success around the world and is the instrument of choice for professionals who are serious about occupational noise compliance. It provides users with all the key parameters required under the legislation for noise at work measurements. The meter is also extremely versatile and easy to use. It is suitable for basic, but also advanced noise surveys, depending on the application.

This latest approval means that the Yorkshire company proves its right to stay on a par with some of the largest manufacturers in the world, providing customers with a world class instrument and provides peace of mind when conducting occupational noise measurements.  PTB approval will be useful to any safety professionals in the UK or around the world who value precision, reliability and quality when undertaking acoustic testing in the work environment.  This will be of particular interest for government agencies and bodies, laboratories or noise consultants who, by law, require type approval such as provided by the PTB to support the accuracy of their noise measurements in complex legal cases. PTB approval is highly regarded in Germany but also throughout Europe and the world.

Sarah Brack, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted that our Nova Model 45 has been recognised officially by such a prestigious and respected laboratory such as the German PTB. At a time when the market is awash with so many meters, it is reassuring for our customers to know that they are offered an instrument that has undergone stringent independent laboratory tests, before they embark on any noise monitoring. This will cement the reputation of Pulsar Instruments further as a serious manufacturer with a strong desire to raise the bar in acoustic measurement”.
