Elektroakustične naprave - 3. del: Ojačevalniki

Ta del standarda IEC 60268 se uporablja za analogne ojačevalnike in analogne dele analognih/digitalnih ojačevalnikov, ki so del zvočnega sistema za profesionalno ali domačo uporabo. Določa značilnosti, ki naj bi bile vključene v specifikacijah ojačevalnikov, in ustrezne metode merjenja.
OPOMBA: Metode merjenja za digitalne ojačevalnike in podobno opremo so podane v standardu IEC 61606 [1]-1.
V splošnem so podane metode merjenja tiste metode, ki so najbolj neposredno povezane z značilnostmi. To ne izključuje uporabe drugih metod, ki dajejo enakovredne rezultate.
Metode na splošno temeljijo na najpreprostejši merilni opremi, ki lahko zagotovi uporabne rezultate. To ne izključuje uporabe bolj zapletene opreme, ki lahko zagotavlja večjo natančnost in/ali omogoča samodejno merjenje in zapisovanje rezultatov.
Določeni so nazivni pogoji in standardni pogoji merjenja, ki zagotavljajo zanesljivo ponovitev merjenja.
