   The B&K Precision Sound Level Meter Type 2232 is an inexpensive instrument for primarily making community noise surveys and less demanding acoustic measurements, but nevertheless offers the accuracy and quality associated with a precision-grade sound level meter. Its excellent ergonomic design and ease of operation enable even the inexperienced user to carry out reliable measurements quickly and effectively. The handy convenience of a Type 1 precision sound level meter which can be carried around in a pocket will be appreciated by all users. A large, easily read digital display gives a single value indication of the maximum A weighted sound level measured during the previous second, thereby eliminating meter reading errors. Type 2232 is robust, compact and lightweight (460 g), and is the ideal tool for environmental health inspectors and other personnel concerned with maintaining acceptable noise levels in industrial and residential locations, for instance police officers checking vehicle noise.

  The B&K Sound Level Meter Type 2232 satisfies the requirements of IEC 60651 Type 1 and ANSI S1.4 1983 Type S1A.
