If the cross-talk is lower (in dB) than the dynamic range of the instrument, it will be the factor that determines the useful dynamic range of the instrument. In order to ensure the quality and uniformity of the results of the 4.1 Measuring instruments 1. measurement of the phase noise sidebands. This section applies to a sound level meter that is being used to measure and determine the noise level of the articles defined in the Regulation. background noise), and then calculating the SNR by: Channel-to-channel cross-talk is a measure of how much contamination from surrounding channels leaks into a measurement channel. the noise generated by the resistances present in the circuit. An overmoulding made of elastomere protects the instrument, guarantees shockproofing. instruments, and indicates means of noise control (see Criteria for Evaluation of Noise). Internal memory of 1,000 datasets of 20,000 measuring points. LAN,T and LAeq,T values are used to evaluate existing noise environments In order to control the impact of predictable noise sources such as highways and construction sites. Figure 1-2 shows theoretical voltage measurement limits at room temperature (300K) with a response time of 0.1 second to ten seconds. Noise Measurement Procedures Manual – Second Edition (July 2008) - 4 - PART B – GENERAL REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES 3 FRAMEWORK 3.1 General Ultimately, the noise measurement procedures presented in this Manual contribute to the control of acoustic energy at locations that are in some way sensitive to the level or quality of noise. It does not apply to determining noise levels from shooting ranges described in Schedule 1 of the Regulation. Nonstop measurements Interchangeable probes This new generation of instruments has an interchangeable and rechargeable Li-ion battery. The aim of acoustic noise measurement is to provide objective physical measurements of noise which can be compared with predetermined criteria in order to judge its acceptability. The Agilent 3048A is a phase noise measurement system that consists of an interface box for frequency conversion and amplification, the Agilent 3561A Dynamic Signal Analyzer, a controller, and software to run the measurement and produce the resulting graphs. As discussed in Sections 2.6.5 and 3.2.6, voltage noise is proportional to the square root of the resistance, bandwidth, and absolute temperature. Built-in location for a micro-SD memory card. Meters or Noise Level Analyzers; these instruments are also capable of measuring the corresponding probability distri­ bution of the noise levels. 2.
