Casella Launches World's First Wireless Shoulder-Mounted Noise Dosimeter

BUFFALO, NY, -- The Casella CEL dBadge2™ is the world's first shoulder mounted, cable-free noise dosimeter with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity to Apple® or Android® mobile devices.

Available in three models, the dBadge2™ captures every metric needed for worldwide noise exposure regulatory requirements, reducing the time and costs typically associated with personal noise monitoring and increasing quality assurance of noise exposure data. Optional Octave Band data capture and audio event recording adds yet more functionality geared towards ensuring the hygienist, safety engineer or hearing conservationist has every bit of exposure data needed to fully analyze the environment and prescribe the best possible solution for preservation of hearing health.

The dBadge2 allows exposure data to be emailed wirelessly at any time from a hand-held device to colleagues and clients, helping accelerate productivity and cultivate a more collaborative working environment. In addition, multiple dBadge2 units can be wirelessly controlled from distances to easily 100 or more feet away, including starting, pausing or stopping sampling -- even without a clear line of sight between devices. Exposure data is updated for viewing in real time providing device status and noise level data before and during sampling so sampling errors and artifacts can be detected, noted or avoided altogether.

Protected from the elements inside a rugged, tamperproof and sealed housing, the dBadge2 is designed to become a mainstay in a variety of industrial applications to uncover dangerous areas and assure compliance with strict OSHA, ACGIH/NIOSH or ISO (European) regulations. Its lightweight, compact design lets an employee wear it throughout their working day without interruption. In addition, the most popular legacy features from the original Casella dBadge design, such as its two-button operation, reliable 1/2-inch microphone, and ultra-secure data storage, were maintained in the new dBadge2, making transitioning simple for existing users.

Customers can choose between three DBadge2™ models -- the standard, the Plus and the Pro -- to meet the most demanding noise monitoring requirements. The Plus and Pro models feature audio event recording and notes, while the top-of-the-line Pro model has octave band frequency analysis which is useful for implementing engineering controls and in the selection of proper hearing protection.
