Protect your workforce with the Optimus Red from Cirrus Research

25 February 2021

EVERY BUSINESS in the UK is required by law to follow the Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005), and keep their employees safe from the dangers of excessive noise as they carry out their work.

The most recent data from the HSE shows that as of 2019, 17,000 workers in the UK suffer from some form of noise-induced hearing loss, with 96 cases of occupational deafness reported in 2019 alone.

The Optimus Red from Cirrus Research makes it easier to carry out fully compliant occupational noise measurements and protect your workforce from conditions such as tinnitus and hyperacusis.

This device uses the very latest digital technology to save you time when carrying out your noise survey by measuring all the data you need simultaneously, so you don’t need to worry about missing something or choosing the wrong function. With the Optimus Red you can simply turn it on, calibrate it, and get measuring.

How the Optimus Red can benefit you

This sound level meter has a large high-resolution display screen that makes reading your data incredibly easy, and is lightweight and easy-to-hold, making the device comfortable to carry around and use in your workplace.

Available as either a Class 1 or Cass 2 instrument, this meter has Bluetooth connectivity, which allows you to use your device alongside a compatible smartphone.

Other features include:

  • No complicated set up procedure making it straightforward to get started 

  • Octave band filters to help you choose the right level of protection for your workforce
