Table 1: NoisePRO® recording settings.

Parameter Setting Description
Response Rate Slow (1 sec) Smooths out noise logging with sudden noise peaks
Exchange Rate 3 dB dBA change equal to a doubling of the noise level
Low Threshold 40 dB Below 40 dBA all noise is ignored by the device
Range of Response LO Expected range 40-110 dBA noise exposure
Weighting RMS A Best fit of frequency response to the how the human ear hears the noise
Weighting peak Z No weighting of frequency response to the peak noise level detected

These are the standard settings as recommended by the manufacturer for the NoisePRO® to record the noise level as it is experienced by the human ear.
