Title Integrating-averaging sound level meters
Project Number 13855
Abstract/Scope Describes instruments for the measurement of frequency weighted and time averaged sound-pressure levels. Ensures specified accuracy and stability of an integrating sound level meter and reduces to the practical minimum any differences in equivalent measurements taken with instruments of various makes and models which satisfy the requirements of this standard. Specifies the following characteristics and test methods for integrating sound-level meters: a)integrating and averaging characteristics; b)indicator characteristics; c)overload sensing and indicating characteristics.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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