Acoustics - Determination of high-frequency sound power levels emitted by machinery and equipment (ISO 9295:2015)

ISO 9295:2015 specifies four methods for the determination of the sound power levels of high-frequency noise emitted by machinery and equipment in the frequency range covered by the octave band centred at 16 kHz, which includes frequencies between 11,2 kHz and 22,4 kHz. They are complementary to the methods described in ISO 3741 and ISO 3744. The first three methods are based on the reverberation test room technique. The fourth method makes use of a free field over a reflecting plane.
The test conditions which prescribe the installation and operation of the equipment are those specified in ISO 3741 or ISO 3744 as applicable.

Akustik - Bestimmung der hochfrequenten Schallleistungspegel von Maschinen und Geräten (ISO 9295:2015)

Diese Internationale Norm legt vier Verfahren zur Bestimmung der Schallleistungspegel von hochfrequenten Geräuschen fest, die von Maschinen und Geräten im durch das Oktavband mit der Mittenfrequenz von 16 kHz abgedeckten Frequenzbereich abgestrahlt werden, welches die Frequenzen zwischen 11,2 kHz und 22,4 kHz umfasst. Sie ergänzen die in ISO 3741 und ISO 3744 enthaltenen Verfahren. Die ersten drei Verfahren beruhen auf dem Hallraumverfahren. Das vierte Verfahren nutzt ein Freifeld über einer reflektierenden Ebene.
Die Prüfbedingungen, die die Aufstellung und den Betrieb der Geräte festlegen, sind je nach Zutreffen in ISO 3741 oder ISO 3744 festgelegt.

Acoustique - Détermination des niveaux de puissance acoustique à haute fréquence émis par les machines et équipements (ISO 9295:2015)

ISO 9295:2015 spécifie quatre méthodes pour la détermination des niveaux de puissance acoustique du bruit à haute fréquence émis par les machines et équipements dans le domaine de fréquences couvert par la bande d'octave centrée sur 16 kHz, qui inclut les fréquences comprises entre 11,2 kHz et 22,4 kHz. Ces méthodes sont complémentaires aux méthodes décrites dans l'ISO 3741 et l'ISO 3744. Les trois premières méthodes reposent sur la technique en salle d'essai réverbérante. La quatrième méthode fait appel à un champ libre au-dessus d'un plan réfléchissant.
Les conditions d'essai qui déterminent l'installation et le fonctionnement des équipements sont celles spécifiées dans l'ISO 3741 ou l'ISO 3744, selon le cas.

Akustika - Določanje visokofrekvenčnih ravni zvočne moči naprav in opreme (ISO 9295:2015)

Ta mednarodni standard določa štiri metode za določanje visokofrekvenčnih ravni zvočne moči
naprav in opreme v frekvenčnem razponu, ki zajema oktavni pas s srednjo frekvenco 16 kHz, kar vključuje frekvence med 11,2 kHz in 22,4 kHz. Te metode dopolnjujejo metode, opisane v standardih ISO 3741 in ISO 3744. Prve tri metode temeljijo na tehniki odmeva v preskusnem prostoru. Pri četrti metodi se uporablja prosto polje nad odbojno ravnino. Preskusni pogoji, predpisani za namestitev in delovanje opreme, so opredeljeni v standardu ISO 3741 ali ISO 3744, kot je primerno.

Introduction
Some machinery and equipment emit high-frequency noise which might be broad-band noise (e.g. paper
noise of high-speed printing) or narrow-band noise and discrete tones (e.g. noise of switching power
supplies and video display units or medical devices).
This International Standard specifies methods for the determination of the sound power levels in the
frequency range covered by the octave band centred at 16 kHz. The measured levels are not frequency-
weighted. The principal objective of this International Standard is to prescribe methods for determining
the sound power levels and frequencies of tones which are contained within the 16 kHz octave band.

SIST EN ISO 9295:2015
INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 9295:2015(E)
Acoustics — Determination of high-frequency sound power
levels emitted by machinery and equipment
1 Scope
This International Standard specifies four methods for the determination of the sound power levels
of high-frequency noise emitted by machinery and equipment in the frequency range covered by the
octave band centred at 16 kHz, which includes frequencies between 11,2 kHz and 22,4 kHz. They are
complementary to the methods described in ISO 3741 and ISO 3744. The first three methods are based on
the reverberation test room technique. The fourth method makes use of a free field over a reflecting plane.
The test conditions which prescribe the installation and operation of the equipment are those specified
in ISO 3741 or ISO 3744 as applicable.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purpose of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 3741 and ISO 3744 apply.
4 Conformity requirements
A method for the measurement of high-frequency noise is in conformance with this International
Standard if it satisfies all the mandatory requirements of one of the four methods described herein
specified in Clauses 6 to 9, and if the information recorded and reported is as specified in Clauses 12 and
13, respectively.
5 Requirements for measurements in a reverberation test room
5.1 General
This International Standard describes three methods using the reverberation test room technique of
ISO 3741. The first and the second methods are usually called “direct methods” because they use directly
measured or calculated reverberation times. The third method is a so-called “comparison method”.
A calibrated reference sound source is used from which the sound power levels of the equipment are
determined by comparison.

---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------

SIST EN ISO 9295:2015
ISO 9295:2015(E)

All three methods require a determination of the mean time-averaged sound pressure level in the
reverberant field.
As instrumentation and basic measurement techniques are the same for all three methods, they are
summarized in 5.3 to 5.7. Additional requirements specific to each method are given separately. For
additional requirements on instrumentation, see ISO 3741.
5.2 Meteorological conditions
The air absorption in the reverberation test room varies with temperature and humidity, particularly
at frequencies above 1 000 Hz. The temperature, θ, in degrees Celsius (°C) and the relative humidity, h ,
r
expressed as a percentage, shall be controlled during the sound pressure level measurements.
The product, h × (θ + 5 °C), shall not vary by more than ±10 % during the measurements.
r
For equipment whose noise emissions intentionally vary with ambient temperature (e.g. by varying the
speeds of air moving devices), the room temperature during the test measurement shall be 23 °C ± 2 °C
or, if the room temperature is outside these limits, the fan shall be adjusted to the speed for an ambient
temperature of 23 °C ± 2 °C.
The following conditions are recommended:
— Static pressure: 86 kPa to 106 kPa;
— Temperature: 15 °C to 30 °C;
— Relative humidity: 40 % to 70 %.
NOTE As indicated in Tables 1 and 2 for the temperature range of 18 °C to 27 °C, higher temperatures and
higher humidity will tend to minimize the effects of atmospheric absorption.
5.3 Instrumentation
The sound measuring system, including the microphone, should have a flat frequency response for
random incident sound in the 16 kHz octave band. The microphone response shall be corrected to give
a flat frequency response within in the 16 kHz octave band. The tolerances after correction shall be
within ±1,0 dB in the frequency range of 11,2 kHz to 22,4 kHz.
NOTE 1 To meet this requirement, a microphone with a diameter of 13,2 mm or less is usually required.
When the noise of the equipment under test is broad-band in character without any significant discrete
tone, an analyser with a bandwidth of one-third-octave or less shall be used. When the noise of the
equipment under test contains discrete tone(s), a narrow-band analyser, which provides bandwidths of
less than one-third-octave in width, shall be used to determine the frequency of the tone(s).
NOTE 2 For narrow-band analysis, an analyser with a bandwidth equal to, or less than, one twelfth octave
is appropriate. Digital analysers using fast Fourier transform (FFT) or equivalent techniques can be useful,
particularly when the analyser combines narrow-band analysis and averaging.
5.4 Installation and orientation of microphone
The microphone shall be mounted at the end of a rotating boom traversing a circle with a diameter of at
least 2 m. In order to reduce the influence of the direct field on the measured sound pressure level, the
microphone shall be mounted pointing in such a way that the normal to its diaphragm is parallel to the
axis of rotation with the microphone diaphragm perpendicular to direction of the equipment under test.
The period of rotation shall be as required by ISO 3741.
Longer paths and traversing periods than the minimum values can be used to reduce the background noise
of the drive mechanism, and to minimize modulation of any discrete tone(s) due to the moving microphone.

SIST EN ISO 9295:2015
ISO 9295:2015(E)

Care shall be taken to ensure that there is no electrical pick-up by the measurement instrumentation
which can interfere with the sound pressure level measurement.
NOTE A test with a dummy microphone, and with the equipment under test in operation, can determine
the influence on the noise floor of the instrumentation. Alternatively, if no dummy microphone is available
without moving the microphone from the measurement position, this influence can be determined by sealing
the microphone and pressure equalization vent in an electrical non-conductive enclosure providing an acoustical
attenuation of at least 10 dB at all frequencies of interest.
5.5 Installation and orientation of equipment
Equipment shall be placed on the floor of the reverberation test room, at least 1 m from any wall, and at
least 1,8 m from the point of closest approach of the microphone.
Four orientations of the equipment shall be used as follows.
— Operator side facing the centre of the microphone path.
— Equipment turned clockwise by 90° from its initial position about a vertical axis through its centre.
— Equipment turned clockwise by 180° from its initial position about a vertical axis through its centre.
— Equipment turned clockwise by 270° from its initial position about a vertical axis through its centre.
Alternatively, equipment shall be placed on a turntable and the turntable shall be revolved during
the measurements. The motion of the turntable shall not be synchronous with the rotation of the
microphone boom.
5.6 Calibration of measurement system
Before the measurement of the equipment noise, the measurement set-up shall be calibrated in
accordance with ISO 3741. Calibration at a single frequency is sufficient if the frequency response of the
entire system, including the frequency range of the 16 kHz octave band, is checked at intervals of not
more than two years.
If an FFT analyser is calibrated with a single-frequency calibrator, care shall be taken to have all major
sideband levels included in the calibration level.
5.7 Measurement of sound pressure level
The sound pressure level is measured in one-third-octave bands or, if discrete tones are present, in
narrow bands which include the discrete tones. Measurements of the time-averaged sound pressure level
along the circular microphone path shall be carried out for each frequency band within the frequency
range of interest. The following data shall be obtained:
a) the band time-averaged sound pressure level with the equipment in operation;
b) the band time-averaged sound pressure levels of the background noise (including noise produced
by ancillary equipment, if any); and
c) the band time-averaged sound pressure levels of the reference sound source (if required,
see Clause 8).
True integration-averaging during a full sweep of the microphone is the preferred method. When using
a narrow-band analyser that performs the analysis in consecutive time periods, each time period shall
correspond to one revolution. The influence of measurement duration and corrections for background
noise shall be taken into account in accordance with ISO 3741.
When FFT analysers are used, the analysis time is typically greater than the individual time window.
For this reason, the total measurement time shall be increased, or individual measurements shall be
repeated for three revolutions of the boom, each for a different starting point.
