The Testo 816-1 sound level meter is a top-of-the-line instrument designed to make accurate sound level measurements workplaces, in industrial and production halls, and in public places. The 816-1 complies with all requirements with regard to the execution of non-conform noise level measurements according to IEC 61672-1 Class 2 and ANSI S1.4 Type 2.

The Testo 816-1 measaures sound levels from 30 to 130 dB with an accuracy of ±1.4 dB. With the touch of a button, the measuring instrument can be switched from Slow (1 sec.) to Fast (125 ms). It is also possible to switch between the frequency weighting characteristic curves A and C and vice versa. Characteristic curve A corresponds to the sound pressure sensitivity of the human ear, while characteristic curve C can evaluate low-frequency components of a noise.

The Testo 816-1 include integrated data storage that can log up to 31000 measurement values. PC software is included for data analysis and a USB cable for data transfer to a computer. With the optional sound calibrator and the adjustment accessory included with it, the Testo 816-1 can be re-calibrated on site.
