SiteHive NATA certification & calibration

🔊 Hexanode Noise NATA Certification & Calibration

For every Hexanode noise deployment, SiteHive ensures precise calibration using a NATA-certified pressure calibrator. The device automatically records calibration values, date, and time. When the Hexanode noise arrives at your project site, an instant calibration certificate is generated, containing all the essential details. You can conveniently access the calibration certificate within the Site Details section of SiteHive Enviro. This process guarantees accurate and reliable monitoring for your environmental needs.

Renders of the SiteHive Hexanode Noise and the Hexanode Multi noise and dust unattended monitoring devices. Components of the devices are scattered beneath like a camera, noiseboard with MEMS microphones and optical dust sensor

The performance of the SiteHive Hexanode sound level meter is shown below, as measured by NMI, compared with the tolerances of a Class 2 sound level meter (note Class 2 devices are only required to perform up to 10KHz frequency range, the Hexanode actually measures beyond this, to 12.5KHz, Class 1 devices go to 20KHz):

It’s been a long process getting to this, including working through a number of iterations of our noiseboard design and various challenges along the way. So we’re now delighted to be able to provide the confidence in our measurements to the people who have not only trusted us to deliver, but provided invaluable input, feedback and suggestions throughout. Many thanks to everyone who has helped and been involved along the way. 🧡

We've also written a paper, presented at the 2022 Australian Acoustical Society Conference in Wellington, NZ. The paper details the design and testing process with both NMI and, more recently, the University of Technology Sydney Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV), and their incredible Tech Lab facility.

This image displays the manage SiteHive Hexanode Device page. There are 6 tabs - monitoring points, position, orientation, power, signal and details. The details tab has been highlighted and clicked on. The details tab displays Make: SiteHive, Model: Hexanode, Calibration date: 15/08/23, Calibration due: 15/08/25 and below and highlighted is the Notes open text field and and 'upload files' button. Below is where the Calibration certificate is located. There is File: PDF, Name: SiteHive-HEX-000246-Calibration-Certificate. Date Added: 29 Aug 2023, size: 486.24KB and next to that are two action buttons. Remove x and View>. Below is a 'Save' button

ℹ️ The calibration certificate is a valuable addition to the device information we provide. It works hand in hand with the calibration countdown, which indicates when your device needs re-calibration. Once it's time, we'll promptly send you a freshly calibrated device to replace the current one.
