Tremetrics RA400 Important Note
The Tremetrics RA400 Audiometer has been out of production for almost 10 years and there are no spare parts available. Those RA400's that were Y2K upgraded have a calibration plate on the bottom of the audiometer. This plate indicates that the last year that the audiometer can be calibrated is 2010.
Beginning January 2011, the RA400 audiometer will not properly document calibration and should not be used for any OSHA mandated testing. Use of this audiometer beyond 2011 places test documentation at risk.
The Tremetrics RA400 audiometer was not designed, nor is it supported by the manufacturer, to be used beyond 2011. We will not be providing calibration services for the RA400 beyond 2010 nor will we provide calibration for any RA400 that has not been Y2K upgraded.
