1012 (D IE C- 3INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSIONFILTERS FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF AUDIBLE SOUNDIN THE PRESENCE OF ULTRASOUNDFOREWORD1)The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters,prepared by Technical Committees on which all the National Committeeshaving a special interest therein are represented, express, as nearlyas possible, an international consensus of opinion on the subjectsdealt with.2)They have the form of recommendations for international use and theyare accepted by the National Committees in that sense.3)In order to promote international unification, the IEC expresses thewish that all National Committees should adopt the text of the IECrecommendation for their national rules in so far as national condi-tions will permit. Any divergence between the IEC recommendation andthe corresponding national rules should, as far as possible, be clearlyindicated in the latter.4)The IEC has not laid down any procedure concerning marking as anindication of approval and has no responsibility when an item ofequipment is declared to comply with one of its recommendations.PREFACEThis standard has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee No. 29:Electroacoustics.The text of this standard is based on the following documents:Six Months'RuleReport on Voting29(C0)14129(CO)154Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can befound in the Voting Report indicated in the above table.The following IEC publication is quoted in this standard:Publication No. 651 (1979): Sound level meters.Other publication quoted:ISO Standard 266 (1975): Acoustics-Preferredfrequenciesformeasurements.SIST EN 61012:2002

1012©IEC-5FILTERS FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF AUDIBLE SOUNDIN THE PRESENCE OF ULTRASOUNDINTRODUCTIONThe frequency response characteristics of sound level meters described inIEC 651 are not specified above 20 000 Hz. Consequently these instrumentsare not suitable for measuring the ultrasonic airborne energy emitted, forexample, by ultrasonic cleaners, mechanical tools and welders whichoperate at frequencies above 20 000 Hz. Moreover, these instruments arealso unsuitable for measuring the audio-frequency part of the soundemitted by such equipment, because the ultrasound will give rise toinflated readings if the frequency response of a particular sound levelmeter happens to extend to the operating frequency of the ultrasonicequipment.The noise which is usually of interest with ultrasonic equipment arisesfrom audible sounds produced by the ultrasonic process, for example, thecavitation noise which is audible in ultrasonic cleaners. To achieve repro-ducible measurements of the audible sound with existing sound level meterswhich comply with IEC 651, the practice is to use the A-weighting res-ponse in conjunction with a low-pass filter which has a very sharp cut-offabove 20 000 Hz. The purpose of this standard is to specify the charac-teristics of such a low-pass filter.When the filter characteristic is used with the sound level meter A-weight-ing specified in IEC 651, the resulting nominal values of the overallfrequency response fall within the scope of Type 1 tolerances.Where the measurement of the ultrasonic component frequencies is requir-ed, the practice is to measure the unweighted sound pressure level usinga microphone system which is known to have a frequency response extend-ing sufficiently, for example, to at least the operating frequency of theultrasonic equipment. A narrow band or one-third octave band filter isusually included in the measuring chain. However, this standard is notconcerned with the measurement of such components, nor with any possiblehazard from them.1.
