Cahuvin Arnoux CA832 Sound Level Meter

Check sound levels according to the regulations

The C.A 832 digital sound level meter is designed to assess sound ambiences or nuisances in accordance with imperatives of safety and legislation in force. It complies with standard IEC 651. The professional and domestic applications are numerous: measuring the sound levels in factories, schools, offices, airports, studios, auditoriums…

The C.A 832 is a portable, compact instrument with a 2000 point display operable in one hand and may be fitted on a photographer’s type tripod for long duration measurements. The C.A 832 is used to measure sound levels from 37 to 130 dB in 3 ranges: 37-80 dB, 50-100 dB, 80-130 dB. It features 2 weighting curves A and C for measurement integrating the sensitivity of the human ear according to sound frequency. Curve A is the general-purpose curve in an industrial environment, and C is more suited in presence of low frequency sounds. Also, mode ‘F’ (fast response time) corresponds to the response time of the ear. Mode ‘S’ (slow response time) will be used to obtain a uniform reading when the sound signal level shows fluctuations.

  • Screwdriver

During the current situation surrounding the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, logistics from every company are under immense pressure to deliver goods on time so we have taken the decision to

Orders requiring calibration 

Whilst we take the greatest care to get all orders dispatched and delivered to you in the stated time frame, orders received PM and requiring
calibration may on occasion miss dispatch that day, according to the complexity of the calibration. Be assured they will ship on the next dispatch
this in most cases should not add more than 24 hours to your delivery.

Bank/Public Holidays

Predicted delivery times are based on regular trading days Monday to Friday. Public holidays, bank holidays and weekends are outside the usual scope
