The Testo 816 is the ideal sound level measuring instrument for assessors, workplace measurements and for the measurement of industrial and environmental noise. Compared to Testo 815, the larger model has additional features which make it ideal for assessors, workplace measurements and for measuring industrial and environmental noise. Accuracy - ±0.5 dB in accordance with Class 2 to IEC 60942.

The frequency weightings "A" and "C" are available. Frequency weighting A is used for standard sound level measurements. This weighting corresponds to the sound pressure felt by the human ear, also referred to as "aurally compensated sound level". If the low frequency levels of a sound are to be assessed, frequency weighting C is used. If the displayed value is considerably higher during the C weighting than during the A weighting, the level of low frequency noise is high.
