Options

text

The Nor145 Analyser is designed to be expanded and upgradeable to give you a complete measurement tool for years to come. Norsonic’s retrofit policy ensures regular software updates with new features and new options followed by a 3 years warranty.

Nor145 basic unit:
includes A, C and Z weighting networks with measurement of Leq, LeqI, LE – sound exposure level, SPL, Lmax, Lmin with parallel detection of Fast, Slow and Impulse time constants, statistical calculation of Ln, and TMAX5. The measurement data is analysed as global values in addition to two parallel time profiles with an adjustable resolution ranging from 5 ms to 24 h. Voice and text annotation included.

Option packages:

Nor145 Advanced Level option kit (e.g. for ENV) containing option: 3, 4, 11, 12.

Nor145 Building Acoustic option kit incl. option 3, 7, 8, 9.

Nor145 Consultant package option kit containing option 3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13.

Option 1: GPS and support for external IP camera

text

The GPS is used for position identification, and support for exact time synchronisation. Time synchronisation is especially useful when several instruments are used for capturing the same noise event, such as blast monitoring.

With an external IP camera, you can make event triggered pictures. Pictures captured during a measurement is marked as events in the L/t graph and can be view on the Nor145, in NorCloud or in NorReview.

The GPS position is stored as a part of the measurement file. It may also be set to be a part of the file name.

This option is not available as retrofit and must therefore be ordered along with the instrument.

Option 3: 1/1 and 1/3 octave band filters

text

1/1 and 1/3 octave filters (0,4 – 20 kHz in 1/3 octave band) including multi-spectre functionality in time profile A.

A 3-order analogue high pass filter with a -3 dB point at 3 Hz may be selected to avoid overloading the input circuitry from low frequency noise.

Option 4: Audio recording and markers

text

This option adds audio recording and marker management to the Nor145. On a Nor145 it is possible to playback and listen to the audio recording via headphones.

Option 4 also adds a sophisticated but easy to use marker management, indispensable for every environmental noise assessment task. The user can select up to ten markers, add names, colour and associate the marker to an action. The marker can either be a single or a toggle marker. The action can be; enable a reference tone, start a recording, take a picture or set one of the digital outputs found on the 15pin socket. It is easy to add markers on an ongoing measurement. Voice and text notes may in the same way as markers be added to an ongoing measurement. The markers can be moved or deleted. Markers may also be added as post processing on the instrument.

The Nor145 offers six system markers that are automatically inserted in the Level versus time profile. These are; Measurement Pause marker, Measurement continue marker, Audio recording marker, Picture marker (from IP camera), Signal overload marker, Battery low marker, Event trigger marker.

The Nor145 is seamless integrated to the PC program NorReview to further evaluate and calculate the noise data and to create customised reports.

Features:

  • 12 or 48 Khz audio recording sampling rate
  • 8, 16 or 24 bit audio recording resolution
  • 0 to 60 dB digital audio recording gain
  • 0 to 120 sec audio recording pre-trigger
  • Innovative marker management system

Option 7: Signal generator

text

Reverberation Time decay and calculation of T20 and T30 based on impulse or noise excitation.

Requires option 3. And option 7 if RT shall be based on noise excitation.

Option 9: Complete Building Acoustic mode

text

Complete Building Acoustic mode with microphone position room averaging in accordance with ISO 16283 as well as sound insulation indices calculated in accordance with ISO 717/1 and /2.

Requires option 3, 7, 8.

Option 11: Enhanced noise assessment package

text

Enhanced noise assessment package including internal web server for remote control via smartphones, pads and PC and additional four triggers for independent setting of different trigger levels during a day.

Requires option 4.

Option 12: NorCloud

text

With this option you are able to connect the instrument to Norsonic’s cloud service; NorCloud.

NorCloud is a Norsonic system to collect, display and process sound level data.

When used together with Nor145 sound analyser, you can measure, analyse and report directly from your web browser. Create projects, assign sound level meters to projects and configure settings such as audio recording, SMS/e-mail alarms and automatic reporting.

Norsonic stores your data safely and conveniently, but you are of course free to download your measurements.

Option 13: FFT

text

FFT sampling rate is 48 kHz with more than 16000 lines. Upper frequency is 22 kHz. Dynamic zoom from 1 – 64. The FFT calculation and 1/3 octave spectrum works in parallel.

Split view with FFT and 1/3 octave. The link cursor feature connects the cursor in FFT and 1/3 octave displays, making it easy to manoeuvre in the frequency domain

Option 14: Ultrasound

text

Ultrasound option including 1/3 octave filters to 40 KHz, 1/1 octave to 31.5 KHz and AU network.
