Bruel & Kjaer 3361 RASTI - Speech Transmission Index Meter

B&K 3361 Speech Transmission Index Meter - RASTI Meter £ 24 a day *

The Rapid Speech Transmission Index Meter 3361 measures speech intelligibility, RASTI and speech quality values

Speech Transmitter type 4225 which sends out a special test signal and Speech Receiver type 4419 which analyses the signal and calculates the RASTI value.
The instruments are battery powered and fully portable, enabling rapid and objective measurement of the quality of speech intelligibility and provide further information of diagnostic value
Uses :
  Objective assessment of speech intelligibility in: Auditoria, Theatres, Conference rooms, Schools, Industry, Aircraft etc.,
  Optimising speech reinforcement systems
  Speech Assessment of public address systems: in Railway Stations, Airports, also Emergency Public Address Systems
  As a diagnostic tool for investigating means of improving speech intelligibility
  Investigation of acoustical privacy
Features :
  Measures Speech Transmission Index according to RASTI measurement method
  Speech Transmission Index given for two octave bands of carrier signal
  Measures 9 points on Modulation Transfer Function
  Estimates equivalent Early Decay and equivalent S/N
  RASTI index can be compared with results of theoretical models
  Built-in loudspeaker for output of test signal
  Selectable measuring times of 8, 16 and 32 s
  Provision for entry of noise floor to simulate Background Noise
  Easily calibrated
  Instruments are small and battery operated
The system is in two parts:-
Speech Transmitter type 4225
Sends out a special test signal, either directly or over the PA system
Speech Receiver type 4419
Analysis the signal and calculate the RASTI and other values.
The technique is documented in BS EN 60268
Manufacturer's Specifications
The B&K 3361 RASTI Meter kit includes a B&K microphone with a 1.5 m lead to the 4419 speech receiver. A tripod for the 4225 speech transmitter and a XLR output plug for connecting to your PA system.
