The measuring microphone capsule has a fixed charge-carrier layer (back electret) to provide the polarization voltage.

The careful construction and the constructive concept of the microphone capsule guarantee a high temporal constancy of the electroacoustic parameters. All important parts, including the membrane manufactured and fixed in a special galvanic process, are made of nickel. The membrane is protected from mechanical damage by a protective cap. The static pressure equalization between the inner cavity and the atmosphere is ensured via a capillary to the downstream preamplifier.

The internationally common thread type (60 UNS) for connecting the microphone capsule allows interchangeability with other 1/4 “microphone capsules and enables connection to all suitable 1/4” or 1/2 “calibration and measuring devices.

The MK 301 measuring microphone capsule is suitable for class 1 sound level meters according to IEC 61672.
