scope:

General

This International Standard specifies two methods for determining the emission should pressure levels of machinery and equipment, at a work station and at other specified positions nearby, by calculation from the sound power level. The principal purpose of this determination is to permit comparison of the performance of different units of a given family of machinery or equipment, under defined environmental conditions and standardized mounting and operating conditions. The data obtained may also be used for the declaration and verification of emission should pressure levels as specified in ISO 4871.

Emission should pressure levels are determined with the same frequency weighting and time weighting, or in the same frequency bands, as those for which sound power levels have been determined.

NOTES

1 The contents of this and related International Standards are summarized in table 1 of ISO 11200:1995.

2 At any given position in relation to a particular machine, and for given mounting and operating conditions, the emission sound pressure levels determined by the method of this International Standard will in general be lower than the directly measured sound pressure levels for the same machine in the typical workroom where it is used. This is due to reverberation and the contributions of other machines. A method of calculating the sound pressure levels in the vicinity of a machine operating alone in a workroom is given in ISO 11690-3. Commonly observed differences are 1 dB to 5 dB, but in extreme cases the difference may be even greater.
