The Reed R8050 has a simple to use interface with the power button located front and center making it easier to turn on and off. Around the power button is a set of five buttons, each of which control one of the core features. A/C and F/S control the speed and frequency measurement, while the MAX HOLD allows you to isolate the highest measured variable. The Hi/Lo allows you to easily choose between the two frequency ranges and the backlight button enabling you to read the large display even in a dark environment.
The Reed Instruments R8050 sound meter meets the ANSI and IEC type 2 standards. It is accurate to ±1.4 decibels measured across 30 to 100 decibels or 60 to 130 decibels. To improve ease of use, the two frequency ranges are printed on the face of the meter helping to remind you when you need to change the range. In addition, the Reed R8050 sound meter is dual mode, so you can select between fast or slow response depending on your application.
The Reed Instruments R8050 has a tripod mount built right in so you can take accurate, verifiable measurements from a specific physical location. The meter is ruggedly built and internally reinforced to prevent damage caused by drops or bumps. In addition, the R8050 has a low battery alarm and an over range alarm. The R8050 comes complete with a windshield ball, battery, and a handy case so you can tote it along.
Checking a sound meter’s calibration is always good practice and for many applications it is essential. The accuracy of the R8050 can be verified by the sound calibrator R8090 (separate purchase) that generates a stable acoustic sound at a controlled frequency and amplitude.
