This Reed ST-173 Sound Level Data Logger has been discontinued. Information shown here is for reference only.
We recommend the new REED ST-805 Sound Level Meter with Data Hold function and two level ranges: Lo: 30~100 dB; Hi: 60~130 dB. REED ST-805 was specifically designed to provide a simple way for sound measurements with 0.1 dB resolution and ±1.4 dB accuracy.
Designed for noise assessment, the Reed ST-173 sound level data logger is an ideal instrument for qualit control, illness prevention as well as detection and measurement of all environmental sounds. These 30 to 130 dB Sound Level Data Logger (YST-173 model )are ideally suited for anyone looking for a great instrument that offers good precision and accurate measurement of sounds in factories or offices, traffic areas, schools and households and more. The instrument comes with metal support stand, windscreen, transparent cap, software CD, instruction manual and battery.
For using the instrument into Manual mode, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds, the DataLogger will start to take the measure. The LED indicates the status function at the same time.
With the Data Logger into the Automatic mode the measurements will be taken using the software and your computer. Before using in this mode, you need to setup the software first. As a measurement is being taken, the green LED indicates it’s working by flashing with the frequency setup in the software. As a measurement is being taken, if the measured value exceeds the alarm range, the red LED will flash (2 times-high alarm, one time-low alarm). When the DataLogger’s memory is full, the yellow LED will flash 10s/time. DataLogger data can be read time after time, the readings you are checking are real time measured (1 to 129920 readings). Without battery, the last 1.5 hours (maximum) of data will be lost. Other data can be read using the software after the battery is replaced.
Insert the software CD into the CD-ROM. Run SETUP.EXE installation program in file DISK1, install it to the directory of C:Program FilesSound Datalogger.Plug the Datalogger to the USB port, system will find and install the USB-driver. Select the relevant Driver under the directory which the software installed. Weh the driver installation was done, a “USB I/O controlled devices” will appear in the Device Manager. You can find “Silabs C8051F320 USB Board” under this directory. Thus software and driver are installed.
Once the software was installed you can manage the following functions from software interface:
NORM MODE: Sound MAX/Sound MIN means the MAX degree or MIN degree of the sampling data. It is the average value of the 20 sampling data. PEAK MAX/PEAK MIN means the MAX or MIN degree of all the measuring values (not the average value).
PEAK MODE: Sound MAX/Sound MIN means the MAX degree or MIN degree of the 20 sampling data. PEAK MAX/PEAK MIN means the MAX or MIN degree of all the measuring values.
You need to calibrate the software if the microphone or the replacement microphone cause an offset in the reading measurement. To begin this process click on calibrate icon. In the following window you will be able to set the “Ajustment Value” (single calibration value, ranging from -12.5 to 12.5). Press the OK button. The “Total calibrated value is -0.5 dB”, calibration over. The range of the total calibrated value is from -12.5dB to 12.5dB. For specifics regarding the application of this software please see the user manual.
