The CR:270 series is a range of instruments designed for the measurement of industrial and environmental noise levels. The main application for the instruments is to measure noise levels for compliance with Noise at Work regulations.

The instrument are capable of measuring L eq (Average Noise Level) and Peak levels, with the parameters being calculated simultaneously. The CR:272 and CR:271 instruments provide the measurement of both A and C weighted levels, allowing the prescription of hearing defenders using the HML method. The CR:274 and CR:273 instruments have the addition of internal octave band filters and dB(Lin), which allow the use of the Octave Band method for the accurate selection of hearing protection

The main physical difference between the units is in the microphone and preamplifier assembly. The Type 1 CR:271 and CR:273 units are supplied with a removable preamplifier as standard, allowing the instrument to be used with extension cables.
