SoundEar 2 Noise Warning Sign Support
The SoundEar 2 noise warning signs have an adjustable threshold. When the noise levels exceed that threshold the sign lights up - first yellow as a warning and then red.
The data logging versions of the SoundEar 2 are no longer available. The software and support on this page are for existing users.
Frequently Asked Questions
For the older RS232 and Classic USB data loggers.
Two versions of the software exist:
v1.1.1 is for the module with RS232 connection
v1.3.4 is for the USB version.
In early 2012 some faulty SoundLog CDs were shipped resulting in complete installation failure. We believe these have all be located but If you have one of these then please let us know and we will send a new one out. In the meantime the you can download it from our SoundEar 2 Download Page.
In normal use, the SoundLog module is removed from the top of the sign, downloaded and then placed back on the sign. When it is connected up to the sign and the power is applied the module knows to clear its memory and start again. However, if the module is removed without download, or power to the sign is removed, the module will be fooled into clearing its memory too.
SoundEar II (Internal Logger)
Ensure that the SoundEar II (version with logging module built in) is not plugged into the power outlet when downloading. It may seem unusual, but the data logging unit gets its power from the computer's USB port and will not communicate with the computer if the sign is plugged into its power adapter at the same time.
The internal data logger in the SoundEar II Logging does not work with 64-bit Windows 7. It will only work with 32-bit Windows 7 installations. If you are unable to run Windows 7 in 32-bit mode then please contact NoiseMeters to discuss upgrading your logging module and software.
SoundEar II (External Logger)
Early versions of the SoundEar II logging module (shipped before October 2012) only work with 32-bit Windows 7 and will usually fail with 64-bit. If you are unable to run Windows 7 in 32-bit mode then please contact NoiseMeters to discuss upgrading your logging module and software.
