High precision Sound Level Meter

The LA-7000 series sound level meter features a large color LCD touch panel, significantly improving operation with its intuitive and easy-to-understand interface. This noise meter not only measures and computes noise levels but also allows for listening to the sound during measurement, facilitating the identification of sound sources and confirming recordings. With optional upgrades, it can evolve beyond a sound level meter to function as a sound analyzer, frequency analyzer, and sound recorder. The LA-7000 series enables efficient measurement work by combining noise measurement, sound recording, frequency analysis, and abnormal sound source detection in a single device. Furthermore, data saved with the LA-7000 series can be combined with various analysis software, enabling waveform analysis, sound quality evaluation, fluctuating sound analysis, and sound frequency simulation.

Optional Features:

Option 1/3 Real-time Octave Analysis Function LA-0702

Option FFT Analysis Function LA-0703

  • English: FFT analysis allows checking the magnitude of sound for each frequency component. It supports automatic data saving and FFT analysis while recording. Improved resolution with 800 and 1600 lines.

Option Sound Recording Function LA-0704

  • English: Allows recording of audio data and playback on the sound level meter itself. Recorded files can be analyzed offline using O-Solution.

Option Offline Analysis Function LA-0704

  • English: Enables analysis of recorded sounds at a later time. Supports re-calculation and re-analysis (FFT, RTA, etc.) of Leq and other parameters.

Option Level Judgment Function LA-0705

  • English: Comes with an output cable and provides color-coded display when the set value is exceeded.

Option Level Simulator Function LA-0707

  • English: Allows listening to the sound after reducing the level of the problematic frequency band, and simulating the effect of the measures before implementation.

Option Sound Quality Evaluation Function LA-0708A

  • English: Effective for sound quality evaluation using loudness, sharpness, and Comfort Index, especially in cases where noise level assessments differ from human perception.

Option Ultra-Low Frequency Sound Measurement Function LA-0709

  • English: Capable of measuring ultra-low frequency sounds (1-20 Hz) that are inaudible to the human ear.
