The first few pages are available as a preview. See “” for more details.

This combination had never been used or suggested by anyone. Therefore, while such systems can be applied to any signal, there is no objective way of telling whether the resulting figure is valid. According to Weeksthe quasi-peak metering system was added inbut this was presumably via an amendment, rather than a second edition.

Wilms page mentions IEC1st ed. The weighting curve described by Wilms in as Q and as used???????

WILMS [ Wilms ] meanwhile suggested to complete these indications for further discussions by measurements with red, pink and “green” IEC loudspeaker test signal noise and different time constants. Ideally, we would be able to combine this measurement figure with 2688-1 self-noise figure of the microphone and produce a third figure which accurately predicts the degree of annoyance or disturbance of the mic and recorder in combination, referenced again to the sound pressure of noise which would have to occur in air to create the same level of disruption if it was fed to a noise-free microphone, pre-amp and ADC.

The History of Low-Level Audio Background Noise Measurement

CCIR amended twice as for quasi-peak metering? Precision Sound Level Meters. The papers must be bought because the Institute is paid from papers sold. The argumentation for the fundamental characteristics laid down in recommendation is contained i.

The integration times iex the different modes of RMS reading amount to: According to Dolby the curve used by DIN in the version was “developed in the s”. Unfortunately, no tests of this type have been carried out since the early ‘s and such results as are available are in some respects inconclusive or contradictory.

For instance, in electrical connectors and standards for paper size A4 etc. This paper argued against the adoption of: The quotes below concern noise weighting and detection in general.

The 1st edition remained current until the 2nd edition was released in In June I was informed that an English translation of one sentence around the bottom of page is: From this it can be concluded, however, that the NIESE weighting may get some importance again, when the electronic circuitry is further developed, economic solutions and general experience in the use of Rec.

The steep rolloff of response above 10 kHz in the CCIR weighting function was probably incorporated because the function was intended for broadcast applications with a high-frequency bandwidth limit of 15 kHz: For unweighted wide-band noise measurement the response is flat between 22 Hz and 22 kHz, and the roll-off shape is the same as for octave filters.

However Weeks states that this change occurred in No metering system was specified in the original. This also prevents potential misinterpretations when comparing older technical data with those for more recent products. Thus, Maurice, Newell and Spencer [ Maurice ] compared the performance of an RMS meter used in conjunction with the CCIF weighting characteristic with that of the BBC Peak Program Meter in conjunction with the CCIF characteristic; the former combination was found to eic better agreement with the subjective assessment of the various types of noise investigated.


Note that the commonly used integration time of approximately ms is similar to that of the VU meter, although the VU meter reading is sound pressure proportional rather than sound power proportional.

BelgerWilms and Hertz This is a stable URL and Eic intend eic maintain and ultimately improve this page in the future. Dick Cappels’ project pages http: Obviously, the amplitude, duration and repetition interval of transients can be infinitely varied. Two stages of gain, amounting to approximately 61 db raise the noise signal level to hundreds of millivolts RMS at the input of the filter. Members of working groups have access to some current and past standards.

This is cited in Wilms as: A peak responding detector will read from a few to many dB greater than a true RMS type, depending on the time constants of the detection circuitry. Each such IEC standard has one or more versions denoted by an edition number. This was retitled in In the case of series production and checking of apparatus with short checking times by automatic measuring appliances it may be advantageous too to use, for type acceptance tests, also RMS value measurement weighted and unweighted in addition to noise measurements.

We are left to trust the judgment of the engineer who chose to use this RMS or average responding system that the noise in question did not contain any significant impulsive components.
