Status: active
Page Count: 50
ICS Code (Electroacoustics): 17.140.50
scope:

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
