Trojan2 Noise Nuisance Recorder
Trojan2 Noise Nuisance Recorder
Designed to meet the needs of Environmental Health Officers, Housing Associations and anyone who needs to measure, monitor and record noise nuisance, the Trojan 2 Noise Nuisance Recorder is both simple to use and easy to deploy. The Trojan was designed after consultation with existing customers and users of noise nuisance recorders and we used that feedback to design an instrument that met their needs. The Trojan 2 is an updated version of the original Trojan Noise Nuisance Recorder, with a range of new features and functions added. On the following pages, you’ll find details of how these features can help you make effective noise nuisance measurements and recordings and how the Trojan 2 can help make the most of your investment.
A fully featured sound level meter
The sound level meter in the Trojan 2 can be quickly removed and used as a handheld instrument giving you two measurement tools in one. Fully featured, the sound level meter will switch automatically between Noise Nuisance mode when it is in the case and Sound Level Meter mode, giving you a powerful noise measurement instrument to use for other applications. The only options that you need to consider are if you need 1:1 and 1:3 octave band filters. All of the other functions are standard including the high quality audio recording, repeating measurements, the high resolution OLED colour display and the 4GB memory. The NoiseTools software can be used with measurement from the sound level meter and there’s no restrictions on where and how you install NoiseTools. If you need to measure outdoors over long periods, the sound level meter can be used with the CK:670 outdoor measurement kit which provides weather protection for the instrument and microphone as well as power for up to 14 days.
Quick, simple and easy to set up
When you are deploying a noise nuisance recorder, it’s vital to know that you’ll get good quality recordings and noise measurement data. With the Trojan2 , there’s no need for step-by-step instructions as it’s just a matter of plug in, calibrate and you’re ready to go. If you forget to press start, the instrument will automatically start measuring after 10 minutes.
Wireless remote control
It may seem a simple thing, but having a wireless remote control was the most common request that came out of our research. If your user has limited mobility or if the noise nuisance recorder is placed in a different room, being able to start and stop the kit without having to run back to the box can be very useful. It can often be the difference between getting a useful, good quality recording and no recording at all.
The Trojan2 is supplied with 2 remote controls, either of which can be used with the kit, and we can supply additional units if you need to replace or add more and we can supply a wired hand switch if needed.
High quality, high resolution audio recording
The standard audio recording on the Trojan2 uses a 16bit/16kHz uncompressed WAV file. This gives you plenty of frequency range (up to 8kHz) and a wide dynamic range (up to 96dB) so your audio recordings can handle both high and low levels with no loss of quality. This is vital if you want to capture both low levels at night and higher levels during the day (such as doors banging or music playing) and be able to clearly identify what was the source of the noise. There’s also no risk of overload or under-range in your measurements or audio recordings. There’s an option to store audio at 32bit/96kHz quality for the ultimate in fidelity and this may be useful if you are going to use the sound level meter out of the case.
Once the case is locked, the power cable and microphone cable are fixed so there’s no risk of the cables being pulled out either accidentally or deliberately. The worst thing that can happen is that the power cable is pulled out just after you’ve left so that you only get a few hours data until the batteries go flat. The Trojan2 avoids these issues whilst maintaining the ease of use demanded by our customers. The cables can be quickly removed for transport and storage
Each Trojan2 is supplied with a 4GB memory as standard. This is usually more than enough for most applications but it can be expanded with a 32GB option. We don’t use removable memory cards as there’s a risk that they can be lost, corrupted or damaged. With the Trojan2 you can also guarantee the chain of data from the instrument to the software, a useful feature if you need to present measurements and recordings as evidence.
Pre & Post Trigger options
The pre and post trigger times for the audio recording can be set as needed. The pre trigger can be up to 30 seconds and the post trigger can be up to 60 seconds. Both of these can be disabled if your procedures require it but you get full control over what suits you best.
Licence free software
The NoiseTools software is supplied, as standard, free of charge and without any installation or licencing restrictions. You are free to install the software onto as many desktops, laptops or servers as you need and there’s no extra cost. Updates are free of charge as well so there’s no ongoing cost with the software.
Automatic restart after power failure
The Trojan2 is designed to be mains powered (with secure cables) but it will switch to it’s own internal batteries if the mains power is lost. What’s important is that when the power is restored, your noise nuisance recorder will start up again and continue to operate. The Trojan2 will automatically restart when the mains power is restored even if it’s internal batteries are flat.
