A maximum hold function with a user reset is available to capture the highest level of noise to give a worst case measurement if needed

A small foam windscreen provided as a standard accessory protects the microphone from wind induced errors when making measurements and a wrist strap minimizes the risk that the meter will not be dropped when in use

Analog ac and optional dc outputs are available to connect the CEL-244 to other pieces of equipment and a low power digital output is also provided through the USB interface which can also be used to power the meter if required.

As soon as the calibration tone is steady it is automatically detected by the CEL-244 and the user is offered the choice of performing the calibration with a single button press

Calibration is as simple as placing the calibrator over the microphone and switching it on

It features 2 ranges from 30 to 100 db and 60 to 130 db and provides the standardized A and C broadband frequency weightings required by many protocols

Results are displayed on a graphic LCD in either alpha numeric format or as a scrolling time history with either 1 or 5 minutes time history graph so that recent peaks and troughs may be viewed

The CEL-244 also has the Slow, Fast and Impulse time responses

The CEL-244 is provided with a standard quarter inch socket so that it can be mounted on a tripod or other similar fixtures in a secure manner

The unit also calculates the ongoing time average value with either the 5 dB or the 3 dB exchange rate

There is no need to use old fashioned screwdrivers that may get lost as the calibration takes just 5 seconds and is very easy to perform

This makes it a useful meter for measurements in workplaces where an overall TWA is required or for community noise measurements by law enforcement officials to compare against local noise ordinances
