EZLD is an automated software data acquisition application for the testing of Level Dependent and Active Noise hearing protection systems and headsets in accordance with industry standards*. EZLD generates test signals at a series of user established sound levels and then automates our Trident multi-function acoustic analyzer and National Instruments signal generation/data acquisition hardware to acquire the protected sound levels under the hearing protector. The software and system can be used with human subjects for MIRE testing or as a fixture based testing solution. Test results are displayed graphically within the EZLD application and can be exported into Microsoft Excel templates for post process data analysis.
