The doseBadge5 Personal Noise Dosimeter

Simple, effective & compliant noise exposure measurements

The Advanced doseBadge5 is a high-performance wireless noise dosimeter that allows you to make compliant occupational noise exposure measurements, put into place effective control measures, and ensure that workers are not exposed to noise levels that will put their hearing at risk.

It’s simple to use and allows you to gather robust, reliable information for use in the assessment of occupational noise exposure. There are no cables, controls, or displays on the individual badges so they remain tamper-proof.

In addition to the four independent channels or integrators (which you can configure to meet any combination of Regulations, Standards or Guidelines worldwide), the doseBadge5 also provides real-time octave band analysis over the entire measurement and when combined with our license-free NoiseTools software, allows individual noise sources to be identified, making the selection of hearing protection, quicker, simpler and more effective.

Real-time octave band analysis

Throughout a measurement, the doseBadge5 noise dosimeter will measure the noise levels in octave bands from 63Hz to 8kHz, giving you detailed information about the frequency content of the noise. This allows you to accurately detemine the levels of hearing protection needed based not only on noise levels (dB(A)), but also based on the dominant frequency of the noise. You can download this information into the NoiseTools software for analysis and to create compliant noise exposure reports. NoiseTools also includes a comprehensive list of hearing protectors and will recommend the best ones to you based on your measurements.

Time history

Not only does the doseBadge5 noise dosimeter give the overall data (unweighted Leq) for each octave band, it also logs and stores a time history (or noise profile) for each band throughout the entire measurement.

This feature allows you to identify specific noise sources within a measurement, mark and annotate them, and use the hearing defender selector within NoiseTools to choose the correct level of hearing protection.

In summary with the doseBadge5 noise dosimeter, you can:

Measure the frequency content of the measured noise exposure
Highlight sections of the measurement and assess hearing protection against known noise sources
Assess hearing protection against a number of different measurements using the Measurement Group functions in NoiseTools
Gather detailed insights into the noise exposures of workers and make effective, informed decisions based on accurate data
Use Time History, to highlight sections of the measurement and understand more about the exposure levels at particular times
Produce compliant occupational noise reports with ease

dBLink App

The free dBLink App supports the doseBadge⁵ Personal Noise Dosimeters and allows you to control and configure your measurements wirelessly. You can also view your measurement data live (e.g. mid-shift readings) and display all of your stored measurements.
