Dear  , 
Happy Spring from The Modal Shop's Sound and Vibration Rental Team. We are always here, ready to help you meet your testing needs with a wide and ever-expanding range of quality, calibrated equipment. We want to keep you up-to-date on what's going on in the world of Acoustics in Rental. Just a reminder, this newsletter will never be sent more than once per quarter.
Low Noise Microphone Measurements

Measure to 6.5 dBA and below with the new 378A04 pre-polarized microphone system offered in Rental. The matched system includes a high sensitivity microphone, low noise preamplifier, and in-line filter for free-field response over a wide 10 Hz-16 kHz frequency range. The pre-polarized (0 V) design powers with any ICP® sensor power with 4-20 mA and pairs with low-cost coaxial cables for simple measurements for any product testing, environmental noise, or R&D project in which extremely low noise is vital.


Need a complete measurement system for low noise? We also offer the Larson Davis 831-LOWN that pairs an 831 Sound Level Meter with the 378A04 for a battery powered, highly portable kit. As with any sound meter kit from The Modal Shop's Rental Program, feel free to configure items to meet your exact test requirements.

Keep Your Sound Level Meter Fresh
When rented from The Modal Shop, every meter includes the current version of firmware. Did you know that you can improve your existing noise monitoring systems as well? Make sure your own Larson Davis LxT and 831 meters are updated with no-charge, current firmware. New features and improvements include enhancements to download speed and USB connectivity, as well as support for new products-including the EPS2116 universal windscreen. Check out a list of updates here and download the latest copy of SLM Utility-G4, including firmware update instructions.
