Underwater acoustics - Hydrophones - Properties of hydrophones in the frequency range 1 Hz to 500 kHz
|Publication Date:||1 April 2017|
|ICS Code (Electroacoustics):||17.140.50|
This document specifies the relevant characteristics and properties of hydrophones in the frequency range 1 Hz to 500 kHz, and specifies how to report these characteristics. It does not cover performance requirements for specific hydrophone types, or for specific hydrophone applications. However, guidance on the choice of a hydrophone with appropriate performance for a specific application is given in an informative annex.
This document is applicable to:
• hydrophones employing piezoelectric sensor elements, designed to respond to sound pressure in water and measure underwater acoustical signals;
• hydrophones with or without an integral pre-amplifier
