The GRAS RA0069 is an adapterfor use when calibrating a 1/8″ microphone with a GRAS Sound Level Calibrator or Pistonphone.

GRAS RA0072 Octopus couplerGRAS RA0072 Octopus coupler

The GRAS RA0072 is an Octopus coupler for calibrating up to eight 1/2″ microphones simultaneously with one Pistonphone.

Typical application and use

The main coupler of an octopus coupler, which replaces the pistonphone’s normal coupler, is connected to eight separate couplers via narrow-bore flexible tubes 50 cm long. Each of these separate couplers can accept a microphone or a plug substitute.

GRAS RA0090 Pistonphone CouplerGRAS RA0090 Pistonphone Coupler

The GRAS RA0090  is a larger-volume coupler for enabling GRAS 42AA/AP Pistonphone to produce a sound pressure level of 94 dB instead of 114 dB re. 20 μPa. Essential when calibrating highly sensitive, GRAS low noise measuring systems.
1″ diameter  microphones fit directly. 1/2″ microphones fit via an included adapter.

The GRAS RA0202 is an adapter to be used for sensitivity calibration of GRAS 40LA & 40LS 1/4″ Surface Microphone Sets using a GRAS Pistonphone. The adapter is provided with a holder arm which keeps the microphone firmly attached during laboratory calibration. This adapter is also suitable for in-situ verification.

 

GRAS RA0216 Field verification adapter for 67AX/ADGRAS RA0216 Field verification adapter for 67AX/AD

The GRAS RA0216 is an adapter to be used for field-verification of the 1/2″ flush-mount microphone which is part of GRAS 67AX & 67AD. In addition to the actual adapter, a ring with two fingerscrews are included. Thereby the adapter can be firmly attached to the plate which has corresponding threaded holes.

The adapter fits both pistonphones (e.g. 42AP Intelligent Pistonphone) and the GRAS 42AB Sound Calibrator.

In addition, the adapter can be used for field verification of 1/2″, 1/4″ or 1/8″ flush-mounted microphones in test objects. In this case the included ring is not used.
