Sound power measurement

Would you like your machine to exhibit a lower sound emission level as a quality feature, or are you required to declare the sound power of your machine? On our test track, we can provide you with sound power measurements under ideal free-field conditions.

The sound power measurement is used to compare the sound emission of different measurement objects. It also makes it possible to determine whether additional sound insulation measures are required. Depending on your needs, we apply national or international testing standards.

Swiss national regulations applied:

  • Regulation of DETEC (Swiss Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications) on the noise emission of devices and machines which are used outdoors (Maschinenlärmverordnung, MaLV)

International regulations applied:

  • Directive 2000/14/EC relating to noise emissions in the environment by equipment for use outdoors
  • EN ISO 3744
  • EN ISO 3746

Do you need sound power measurements in line with your specifications? We are here to help.
