Sound Level Meter Data Loggers:


Product Description

The Wireless Sound Level Meter Data Logger NSRTW_mk2 is the second generation of Convergence Instrument's WiFi™ enabled smart integrating sound-level meter/datalogger. It includes a type 1 digital MEMS microphone, an accurate date/time clock, a non-volatile 128 Mb recording memory and wireless connectivity with fast USB and WiFi™ download.

Running on battery, it can record sound pressure levels and report them through WiFi™ for a week. Connected to an external USB charger it can record and report for months. Its very small size allows it to be attached to or embedded within the monitored equipment.

Every Wireless Sound Level Meter Data Logger NSRTW mk2 purchased is provided with an Individual Manufacturer's Certificate of Calibration from Convergence Instruments. This all-digital design includes the A, C and Z weighting curves. It is enclosed in a completely weatherproof casing which is designed for indoors and outdoors applications.. Its highly sensitive Type 1 MEMS microphone has a noise floor of 30 dB-A, and is ultra stable with time and temperature variations. The software includes an oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer features, as well as email alarms.

New Features of the NSRTW_mk2

Complies with the precision requirements of ANSI S1.4 and IEC651 standards - Type I
Type I precision (bandwidth selectable between 16 kHz and 20 kHz)
"Z" weighting (in addition to A and C)
Open TCP/IP protocol to facilitate custom user applications/instrument interface
Server access via a domain name
Direct email alarms (no need to transit through the server)
Fast USB and WiFi™ downloads
Real-time recording while connected to PC (Use of the SLM as a high quality digital microphone at 32 kHz and 48 kHz sampling rates)
New "universal" Manager application that can manage any instrument in the Noise Sentry RT series

Wireless Sound Level Meter Data Logger NSRTW_mk2 Applications

Sound level and acoustic dose measurement and recording.
Monitoring of safe working conditions.

Vibration Meter Data Logger:

VSEW_mk2 Instrument picture

The Wireless Vibration Meter Data Logger - VSEW_mk2 - 8g is a new model in the VSE series of smart vibration data loggers. It can record accelerations, vibrations, velocities and inclinations. It includes a 3-axis MEMS accelerometer, an accurate date/time clock and a non-volatile 128 Mb recording memory. Depending on the settings it can record acceleration or velocity signals and/or RMS levels for months. Its very small size allows it to be attached to, or embedded within, the monitored equipment.

The Wireless Vibration Meter Data Logger - VSEW_mk2 - 8g model is an evolution of the Vibration Sentry E model.

The VSEW_mk2 has the following new features:

Can measure, record and trigger on velocity signals, in addition to acceleration signals.
Has WiFi reporting and email alarms.
Includes an accelerometer with exceptional noise floor (20 times better noise floor than the Vibration Sentry E - 16g).
Sampling rates up to 4 kHz.
Improved anti-aliasing filter.

The VSEW_mk2 vibration meter data logger is ideal to monitor very low vibration levels, such as ground tremors and floor vibrations.

VSEW_mk2 Applications

Building-health monitoring on construction sites.
Long-term seismic monitoring.
Long-term inclination monitoring.
Long-term measurement and recording of acceleration signals, velocity signals, signal statistics (peaks and average) and RMS levels.
Continuous monitoring of machinery wear.

2.Manage your instruments and their related recording (wlg) files.
3.View your instruments recorded data in a graphical way:
1.Instrument's temperature over time (health).
2.Instrument's battery voltage over time (health).
3.Instruments Sound levels or Vibration levels recorded data for a specific period of time of your choice.
4.Pan and zoom specific areas of concern.
5.You can also capture your graphics in jpeg format and paste those images inside your reports.
4.Receive Alarm e-mails from your instrument (from when "Sound Level" or "G Level" has reached its threshold point or when instrument's battery has fell below a critical voltage.

hmtoggle_arrow1CIDataSolutions™ Integrator:

Integrator: An individual or a firm who provides integrated services in their offering to clients of speciality niches such as information systems for large companies, cities, government agencies, and much more. They can make extensive use of the CIDataSolutions™ API to access the Convergence Instruments WiFi™ instruments recorded data; without going to the Internet with a browser; and easily integrate this information inside their own solution.

Note: Integrators don't have to own a Business Subscription to CIDataSolutions™ Web Application to monitor Convergence Instruments WiFi™ Instruments for their clients, but all their clients must have their instruments covered by such a subscription to the CIDataSolutions™ Web Application to allow those integrators access to the recorded data of their clients.

They also need a free of charge Integrator's Subscription to get their unique ISN (Integrator Serial Number) for identification purposes in a secured environment (no Hacking!).


There is no cost associated to becoming an integrator with CIDataSolutions™, but integrator needs first to request his free "Integrator Subscription" to receive his credentials to securely access CIDataSolutions™ API. The instruments ID they request recorded data for must be covered by a subscription to CIDataSolutions™ taken for all instruments their clients own.


The CIDataSolutions™ API proposes a simple "Command Set" covering several Requests for specific instruments serial numbers "ISN"s integrators have access rights to.


User_name: The name that will identify you, the user, during your CIDataSolutions™ work session. It is also true for the integrator communicating to CIDataSolutions™ Web Application when using the CIDataSolutions™ API services.

SN: Serial Number of the instrument.

ISN: Integrator Serial Number. The ISN is unique to each integrator and essential for all communications with the CIDataSolutions™ API.
