The diffuse field equalized microphone capsule has a straight frequency response of the pressure transmission factor up to 8 kHz.

The design concept of the microphone capsule is the same as that of the MK 221.

The static pressure equalization between the inner cavity and the atmosphere is ensured via a capillary to the downstream preamplifier. This enables the use of the drying adapter TA 202.

The internationally common thread type (60 UNS) for connecting the microphone capsule allows interchangeability with other 1/2 ”microphone capsules and enables connection to all suitable calibration and measuring devices.

Introducing The Renew 1:
A solar only power solution using a 115W solar panel together
with a 38Ah deep cycle battery. Ideal for running systems requiring lower power such as the SV 307 noise monitor under typical environmental conditions.
