Bruel & Kjaer 4231 Highlights

Calibration accuracy ±0.2dB, 94dB SPL or 114dB SPL for calibration in noisy environments, Fits Bruel & Kjaer 1" and 1/2" microphones (1/4" and 1/8"with adapter).

Sound Calibrator Type 4231 is a pocket-sized, battery operated sound source for quick and direct calibration of sound level meters and other sound measuring systems. It fits Bruel & Kjaer 1" microphones and using the removable adaptor, 1/2" microphones. With optional adaptors, it can be used for 1/4" and 1/8" microphones as well.

The calibration frequency is 1000 Hz (the reference frequency for the standardised international weighting networks), so the same calibration value is obtained for all weighting networks (A, B, C, D and Linear). The calibration pressure of 94 ± 0.2 dB re 20 mPa is equal to 1 Pa or 1 N/m2. The + 20 dB level step gives 114 dB SPL, which is convenient for calibration in noisy environments, or for checking linearity.

The design of Type 4231 is based on a feed-back arrangement to ensure a highly stable sound pressure level and ease of use. The feed-back loop uses a condenser microphone (see Fig. 1), which is specially developed for this purpose.

This microphone is optimised to have extremely high stability and independence of variations in static pressure and temperature around the 1 kHz calibration frequency. The result of this is a user-friendly calibrator where exact fitting of the microphone is non critical and the effects of changes in temperature and static pressure are negligible.

  • The calibrator gives a continuous sound pressure level when fitted on a microphone (see Fig. 2) and activated
  • The sensitivity of the sound measuring equipment can then be adjusted until it indicates the correct sound pressure level
  • The calibrator is automatically switched off when removed from the microphone
  • A leather protecting case, which does not need to be removed to use the calibrator, is supplied
