Acoustic Research Laboratories (ARL) have announced the release of Ngara, the future of noise monitoring. Ngara is a real time sound acquisition system, and the newest addition to their product range.
Ngara offers class 1 specifications allowing the user to post-process statistical noise measurements from 1/10th of a second stored data files. Ngara provides the option to store calibrated (continual or triggered) 48 kHz raw audio data. Measurements and data are stored to a USB storage device (HDD or memory stick).
The unit is powered by 12V DC, using an optional external mains power adaptor or sealed lead acid battery. Two weeks of continual 1/10th of a second data can be achieved under certain configurations whilst using battery power. Ngara is housed within a single durable case for trouble free transportation and equipment security.
