Quest Technologies Introduces the SoundPatrol DP Series Sound Level Meters for Noise Ordinance Enforcement

Loud Parties, Bars, Nightclubs, Construction Equipment, Amplified Musical Instruments, Lawn and Garden Equipment, and Barking Dogs are examples of noise found in every major urban area.

Oconomowoc, WI, June 1, 2005: Quest Technologies Inc, an employee-owned world leader in the development and manufacture of monitoring instrumentation and software for Occupational and Environmental Health & Safety (OEHS) applications, announces the release of the SoundPatrol DP Series Sound Level Meters for Noise Ordinance Enforcement. Noise ordinance enforcement is an area that is not traditionally seen by law enforcement as a high priority. However, excessive unnecessary, and/or annoying noise can have serious effects on the residents of a community. Enforcement of local noise ordinances requires field testing of noise levels and documentation of measurement results, particularly in the event a citation is issued. The need exists for a simple system that requires minimal training to be easily deployed in the field by law enforcement personnel. Quest Technologies has created the SoundPatrol DP Series Sound Level Meters with digital printing capabilities especially for this application. Users will quickly learn to confidently perform a pre-test field calibration, take a valid noise sample, perform a post-test calibration check and generate complete printed results using the system's convenient belt-worn portable printer.
