The GA216I is purposely designed for Industrial Safety Officers & Safety Managers for full compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act; Noise at Work Regulations (2005). It is a Class 2 Sound Level Meter that is fully compliant with IEC 61672-1:2013. This sound meter offers simultaneous Leq (rms. average) and peak measurement(Cpeak), Personal sound exposure Level (LEpd) and Single events Sound Exposure Level (LAE) . All of these measurement parameters can be easily cycled through at the press of a button. This makes the GA216I the go to meter for noise at work applications.

Supplied with a fully calibrated microphone the GA216I is ready for use straight from the box with full confidence in accuracy
