SoundMeter 3.3 can turn your iPhone or iPad into a personal noise dosimeter
SoundMeter 3.3 offers users the option to add a noise dosimeter tool via in-app purchase. The new Dosimeter tool enables you to measure noise dose–the percentage of a maximum permissible daily noise exposure based on an 8-hour time period. The Dosimeter supports criterion levels of 80, 85 and 90 dB, exchange rates of 3, 4 and 5 dB, and thresholds of 40 to 80 dB. The new tool also displays the 8-hour time-weighted average sound level (TWA), as specified by OSHA.
As with other measurements in SoundMeter, the Dosimeter’s accuracy depends on the quality of the microphone used as well as the accuracy of the microphone’s sensitivity calibration within SoundMeter.
SoundMeter 3.3 also includes updated Help files, minor bug fixes, and stability improvements. SoundMeter 3.3 will also continue to run while the screen is locked, which is important for making long-duration measurements, such as noise dose, Leq, and TWA.
