|Benefits of an Internet Connected Noise Monitoring Station:
For these reasons Larson Davis has focused on a solution leveraging network communications while at the same time ensuring compatibility with existing sound level meters.
The Larson Davis NoiseTutor Solution
Speed and reliability improvements versus classical analog modems
Support many noise monitor connections using a single Internet connection
Automated reconnection without losing data when communication is interrupted
No specialized hardware needed
Flexible setup, leveraging existing infrastructure and products
Simplify remote monitoring of data – on site specialists no longer required
In a network of NoiseTutor monitoring stations each unit can be completely independent with no need for a centralized management system or an associated web server. When a monitoring unit is active, the data is collected by the NoiseTutor at predetermined intervals (e.g. hourly, twice a day, etc.) after which a graphical report is dispatched to designated mail recipients or a website.
Each NoiseTutor station consists of a sound level meter, compact industrial PC, and a rechargeable battery to provide power during AC power interruptions. A power optimization scheme allows the PC to be in “Standby” mode while data collection on the SLM continues and no transmission is required.
The NoiseTutor solution allows for easy management of any configuration from a single remote monitoring station to a network of NoiseTutor stations with automatic distribution of information. Numerous variations are available and can be activated according to the specific monitoring (events, audio, video, weather, etc.) or networking scenario.
Each monitoring unit provides, on request, a method of web-publishing with real-time customizable graphical and numerical tables. Our server application, an example of which is visible at noisetutor.pcb.com or www.noisetutor.it, is made available for customization.
with Larson Davis Sound Level Meter Software
NoiseTutor saves data in SLMDL format which is readable with our no-cost SLMUTILITY-G3 software. Here the data can be easily viewed or exported to Excel for further analysis.
For those looking for advanced analysis features, data received via e-mail can be concatenated and processed using Larson Davis DNA Software to obtain results over daily, weekly, monthly and even annual periods together with Ldn and Lden, numerical tables, time history and spectrograms of Leq and Ln.
