Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 March 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 50
ICS Code (Electroacoustics): 17.140.50
scope:

This part of IEC 61260 describes procedures for periodic testing of octave-band and fractional-octave-band filters that were designed to conform to the class 1 or class 2 specifications given in IEC 61260-1:2014. The aim of this standard is to ensure that periodic testing is performed in a consistent manner by all laboratories.

The purpose of periodic testing is to assure the user that the performance of an octaveband and fractional-octave-band filter conforms to the applicable specifications of IEC 61260- 1 for a limited set of key tests and for the environmental conditions under which the tests were performed.

The extent of the tests in this standard is deliberately restricted to the minimum considered necessary for periodic tests.

Periodic tests described in this standard apply to filters for which the manufacturer claims conformance to the specifications in IEC 61260-1:2014. Periodic tests in this standard apply to filters for which the model has been, or has not been, pattern approved by an independent testing organization responsible for pattern approvals in accordance with the test procedures of IEC 61260-2.

Because of the limited extent of the periodic tests, if evidence of pattern approval is not publicly available, no general conclusion about conformance to the specifications of IEC 61260-1 can be made, even if the results of the periodic tests conform to all applicable requirements of this standard.
