RS PRO SLM1353M Integrating Sound Level Meter with USB Interface

From the trusted RS PRO brand, the SLM1353M is a great value, easy-to-use integrating sound level meter with USB interface. The USB serial port is used for downloading records or real-time analysis to a computer. Both AC and DC signal outputs are available from a single standard 3.5 mm coaxial socket suitable for use with a frequency analyser, level recorder, FFT analyser or graphic recorder.

With a high-quality microphone, this sound level meter is the ideal solution for measuring sound and ambient noise levels in almost any environment.

Measured parameters Leq, SEL, SPL MAX, SPL MIN, PH (Peak Hold), L05, L10, L50, L90 and L95 are monitored during measurement and can be viewed selectively by pressing the Leq SEL SPL button.

This RS PRO digital sound meter, or noise level meter, takes accurate readings of ambient noise levels in an environment. There are several reasons you might want to monitor an environmental noise level- from performance analysis to health and safety concerns. In a factory environment that uses heavy machinery, for example, you might want to know if the environment requires employees to use hearing protection. Alternatively, an entertainment venue might want to measure the noise of its sound system to see if it adheres to local noise level compliance. Digital sound level meters are often used in;

• Car industry
• Mechanical industry
• Leisure and music

What is the difference between Class 1 and Class 2 sound level meters?

Generally, Class 1 noise meter devices are able to measure a wider frequency range than Class 2, and so are more suitable for precision applications. However, for most purposes, a Class 2 device offers a potentially more cost-effective noise measurement solution.


RS PRO aims to be your go-to brand when it comes to reliability, quality, and affordability. We source high-quality tools and parts from trusted sources and employ expert testing to build a brand you can rely on.

When it comes to test and measurement equipment, RS PRO has an extensive range of solutions. From electrical to environmental measurement, we offer calibrated and multi-function instruments to suit your needs.
