REATPlus is a second generation software application for use by hearing protector professionals. REATPlus conducts for conducting Real Ear Attenuation at Threshold (REAT) audiometric measurement in accordance with the ANSI S12.6 and ANSI S3.19 standard test methods on earplugs, earmuffs and other hearing protection devices and systems. Plus, when used in conjunction with our Trident software, REATPlus also supports many other measurements commonly conducted in hearing protector test laboratories, including MIRE and fixture based testing of hearing protectors. REATPlus operates on National Instruments PXI-4461 and PXI-6220 series hardware. REATPlus is an automatic Bekesey audiometer program designed to provide stimulus and track responses for sound field hearing threshold determination for both occluded and unoccluded conditions. REATPlus also provides calibrated signal generation for MIRE and fixture based tests.
- Tracks both unoccluded and occluded hearing thresholds
- Provides both thresholds and trace history
- Provides tools for sound field calibration
- Automated attenuator control and gain adjustment
- Data export into MSExcel for post-process analysis and reporting
REATPlus is the second generation of the REATMaster software originally developed by Nelson Acoustics Software for the NASA Glenn Research Center and in conjunction with technical input from NIOSH. REATPlus has been enhanced with additional features and is now supported by ViAcoustics for laboratories with an interest in hearing protector attenuation measurement.
