International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61043:1994
Title Electroacoustics - Instruments for the measurement of sound intensity - Measurement with pairs of pressure sensing microphones
Project Number 439
Abstract/Scope Applies to instruments which detect sound intensity by pairs of spatially separated pressure sensing microphones and specifies performance requirements for instruments used for the measurement of sound intensity, and their associated calibrators. The purpose of this standard is to ensure the accuracy of measurements of sound intensity applied to the determination of sound power in accordance with ISO 9614. To meet the requirements of that standard, instruments are required to analyse the sound intensity in one-third octave or octave bands, and optionally to provide A-weighted band levels.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
