Measurement Microphones - Part 1: Specifications for Laboratory Standard Microphones
|Publication Date:||1 July 2000|
|ICS Code (Electroacoustics):||17.140.50|
This part of IEC 61094 specifies mechanical dimensions and certain electroacoustic characteristics for condenser microphones used as laboratory standards for the realization of the unit of sound pressure and 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.
This part also 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 conducting of inter-laboratory comparisons involving the calibration of the same microphones in different laboratories, and the interchangeability of microphones in a given calibration system.
