Further underlining its unrivalled position as the first company to develop an all-digital, ‘badge-style’ personal sound exposure meter for use around the workplace.

In fact, sales of the popular and well-proven instrument, which weighs just 71g, have continued to rise since its launch six years ago.

To mark the dBadge series’ popularity, the leading specialist in high performance occupational and environmental risk measurement solutions is offering a FREE dBadge when customers buy any complete K1 kit comprising a dBadge, calibrator, three-way charger, Insight software, carrying case and USB interface cable. The offer applies to both Intrinsically Safe (IS) and non-IS models.

Neal Hill, Casella’s Product Marketing Manager, comments: “Thousands of companies worldwide have purchased our dBadge over the past six years as part of their commitment to assessing and monitoring noise in the workplace and compliance with Workplace Noise Regulations.

He adds: “The dBadge is as robust as it looks and customer feedback such as ‘rugged’ and ‘easy-to-use’ continue to make the dBadge a sound investment.”

The dBadge uses the latest digital technology and features a compact, rugged and lightweight design. It is completely cable-free, unlike traditional dosimeters, and does not require any other equipment. It is simply operated by two keys on the side of the instrument and offers an automatic calibration function.

Casella’s dBadge has a ‘fuel gauge’ to show memory and battery status information, ensuring the exact remaining capacity can be viewed clearly, whilst a 28-hour battery life and large memory are sufficient to perform several consecutive shift measurements without charging or downloading.

An ultra-bright LED on the dBadge gives a visual indication of when exposure action levels have been exceeded by flashing at different rates.

A variety of mounting options are available for all types of work environments, making the dBadge very easy to fit to the shoulder of the employee and comfortable to wear.

The dBadge automatically downloads to a PC using Casella Insight software, simply by pointing the instrument at the infra-red download cable provided.

Casella’s dBadge series is ideal for a number of applications: measuring personal noise exposure; assessing and monitoring noise in the workplace; ensuring compliance with Workplace Noise Regulations; aiding in the selection of effective hearing protection (dBadge Plus) and conducting measurements according to ISO9612:2009, determination of occupational noise exposure.

Established since 1799, Casella’s market leading products are exported world-wide through an extensive network of distributors and agents. A truly global business, the rapidly expanding company has offices in North America, India and China.
