Sound System Equipment - Part 3: Amplifiers
|Publication Date:||1 August 2000|
|ICS Code (Amplifiers):||33.160.10|
This part of IEC 60268 applies to analogue amplifiers, and the analogue parts of analogue/digital amplifiers, which form part of a sound system for professional or household applications. It specifies the characteristics which should be included in specifications of amplifiers and the corresponding methods of measurement.
NOTE The methods of measurement for digital amplifiers and similar equipment are given in IEC 61606. 1)
In general, the specified methods of measurement are those which are seen to be most directly related to the characteristics. This does not exclude the use of other methods which give equivalent results.
In general, the methods are based on the simplest measuring equipment which can provide useful results. This does not exclude the use of more complex equipment which can give higher accuracy and/or allow automatic measurement and recording of results.
Rated conditions and standard measuring conditions are specified in order to allow measurements to be reliably repeated.
