Noise monitoring solutions for sound power - Health and Safety - Noise and Vibration
Noise emission values are increasingly becoming marketable items for machines, equipment and appliances - low noise emissions directly relate to lower noise exposure for product users and bystanders. Retail customers, both private and corporate, appreciate this relationship and are, therefore, more aware of noise emission declarations on goods when deciding their purchases.
Sound power has become the preferred quantity to measure when determining product noise emissions. This is because it is an absolute quantity, dependent only on the noise source itself, and independent of the acoustic environment.
