American National Standard Measurement Microphones - Part 1: Specifications for Laboratory Standard Microphones
|Publication Date:||6 June 1997|
This Part 1:
- specifies mechanical dimensions and certain electroacoustic characteristics for condenser microphones used as laboratory standards for sound pressure measurements of the highest attainable accuracy. The specifications are intended to ensure that primary calibration by the reciprocity method can be readily carried out for the purpose of traceability to national standards.
- establishes a system for classifying laboratory standard condenser microphones into a number of types according to their dimensions and properties in order to facilitate the specification of calibration methods, the conduct of inter- laboratory comparisons involving the calibration of the same microphones in different laboratories, and the interchangeability of microphones in a given calibration system.
