cirrus environmental-kit April 2018The new Outdoor Kit2 now has an App (iOS & Android) that allows for real-time notifications when a trigger in the Cirrus Optimus Green sound level meter is activated, allowing for accurate, remote monitoring.

The kit also offers longer battery life and outdoor mains power supply as standard; along with new, more robust connectors for the microphone and power supply. Cirrus now provides two batteries as standard with the kits. A standard SIM Card can be used in the CK:685B version with the modem & GPS.

Supplied with a robust, weather protected case along with an outdoor microphone, The Outdoor Kit2 allows noise measurements to be made over long periods of time, whatever the weather. It provides protection for the sound level meter and measurement microphone from adverse conditions and is extremely easy to transport and install with a secure, lockable case. The flexible power options using internal batteries & external power are designed to be used with the Cirrus' market-leading Optimus Green Sound Level Meter.

Said James Tingay, Cirrus Marketing Manager: "It is ideal for unattended outdoor noise measurements and noise monitoring in remote areas. We already see it becoming the industry standard for constructions sites, mining operations, or by those involved in environmental impact assessments and wind farm noise monitoring."

Cirrus will be attending the sold-out CIEH conference, April 17, which is looking at Noise Regulation and Good Practice, as well as sponsoring part of the event.
