Noise monitoring with direction
- One of the greatest challenges with unattended noise monitoring is to ensure that the monitored site really is the source being measured.
- What is making the noise?
- Is it the construction site, a nearby railway or an aircraft?

- Norsonic was the first company to introduce sound recording of noise events in a sound level meter. This greatly improved the work to identify a noise event and to judge whether it should be excluded or not from the overall noise level. However, it’s quite time consuming to listen through numerous sound recordings.
- The three-dimensional Nor1297 Noise Compass significantly reduces time spent on judging if a noise source should be a part of the overall noise calculation or not, simply by defining which direction the noise is coming from. When used together with Norsonic’s sound level meters and NorCloud, the device provides a three-dimensional vector pointing at the sound source. The system may also operate off-line and collect the data on the instruments SD card for later analyse in NorReview.
