Casella’s dBadge2 wireless noise dosimeter has gained intrinsic safety certification for use in industries that operate in highly explosive environments, including oil and gas, petrochemical and pharmaceutical. The new Casella dBadge2 is incapable of igniting an explosion even under fault conditions. It is certified for class I, zone 0 hazardous locations. Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, the dBadge2 lets users wirelessly control multiple units from distances of up to 100 feet away, including starting, pausing or stopping noise sampling, even without a clear line of sight between devices. They can then transmit real-time noise exposure data via their intrinsically safe mobile devices from the most hazardous zones of their operations to off-site managers. The shoulder-mounted, cable-free dBadge2 captures every metric needed to satisfy noise exposure regulatory requirements globally, while dramatically reducing the time and costs typically associated with personal noise monitoring, says the manufacturer.
