    Specifies the performance requirements for these classes of sound calibrator, laboratory standard (Class LS), Class 1 and Class 2. Identical and reproduced from IEC 60942:2003.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This International Standard specifies the performance requirements for three classes of sound calibrator: laboratory standard (class LS), class 1 and class 2. Tolerance limits are smallest for class LS and greatest for class 2 instruments. Class LS sound calibrators are normally used only in the laboratory; class 1 and class 2 are considered as sound calibrators for field use.A class 1 sound calibrator is primarily intended for use with a class 1 sound level meter and aclass 2 sound calibrator primarily with a class 2 sound level meter, as specified in IEC 61672-1.The tolerance limits for class LS sound calibrators are based on the use of a laboratorystandard microphone, as specified in IEC 61094-1, for demonstrations of conformance to therequirements of this standard. The tolerance limits for class 1 and class 2 sound calibrators are based on the use of a working standard microphone, as specified in IEC 61094-4, fordemonstrations of conformance to the requirements of this standard.A multi-level and multi-frequency sound calibrator has the same class designation for all sound pressure level and frequency combinations for which the instruction manual states that theinstrument conforms to the requirements of this standard.This standard does not include requirements for equivalent free-field or random-incidencesound pressure levels, such as may be used in the overall sensitivity adjustment of a soundlevel meter.A sound calibrator may provide other functions, for example, tonebursts. Requirements forthese other functions are not included in this standard.
