Offering a host of new features, the latest addition to the doseBadge range will be on the H36 stand, giving delegates the chance to see and experience the latest model for the first time.
The latest model has a wide range of new USPs including: increased wireless technology so the doseBadge can be connected via a mobile phone or App on a IOS or Android controlled device; with information being downloaded even quicker using this type of technology.
The doseBadge5 unit is now even more slimline boasting detailed data-logging facilities that can be specified down to the second, rather than the previous one-minute window.
It also has intelligent charging with the device controlling its own charger to combat overcharging so it can prolong battery life to more than 12 hours and now includes an anti-tamper and vibration device to cut down on anomalies.
To give users complete control over your noise assessments, the doseBadge5 allows measurements to be started and stopped automatically at preset times using the Scheduled Measurements function. The start time, duration and end time of a measurement can be set either in the NoiseTools software or in the dBLink App, giving you complete control over when measurement data is gathered.
If required, measurements can be paused to allow for lunch breaks or rest periods that should not be included in the overall measurement data. Up to three timed periods can be defined for each day and the timers enabled or disabled for specific days of the week. If the doseBadge5 is on the Dock being charged, timed measurement periods are ignored but as soon as badge is removed from the Dock, the timers are activated.
This allows the doseBadge5 to be deployed to remote sites or to locations where there is no access to a doseBadge5 Wand or the dBLink App.
The Cirrus team will also be demonstrating the Optimus sound level meter range as well as the Revo vibration meter for hand-arm and whole body measuring that only came to market in 2015.

The new Pulsar NoisePen personal noise dosemeter can be combined with Pulsar sound level meters, such as from the Nova range, to provide a multi-function safety professionals’ noise measurement kit. The kit can be customised to individual requirements and can include up to five personal noise dosemeters, a sound level meter and its acoustic calibrator.The NoisePen, worn on the upper body during an entire shift, captures workers’ total noise exposure to check compliance with applicable regulations.
It is also used by teams working in tunnels, chambers, tanks, vats, silos, trenches, pipes, sewers, flues, wells or other enclosed spaces when there are difficult working conditions, including:• Toxic or oxygen deficient atmospheres• Long distances (4000m plus there and back is not unusual)• Hot and humid conditions• Poor visibility (smoke)• Poor underfoot conditions• Damaged infrastructure• Restricted access• Restricted height
In 2010, the 300th SP203 BAFE approval was to ITS Fire & Security (www.itsfire.co.uk), who have continued to be third party certified to this day. “Being BAFE registered gives us the edge over our competitors. Our customers understand that we are competent in everything that we do” explained Rob Day, Managing Director.
Given that 80% of all infections are transmitted by hands, regular handwashing with soap is widely seen as one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria – and avoid infections. The practice could reduce the number of people catching colds by 45%, according to estimates.
