1 Scope
This document specifies general requirements and performance test procedures for portable and fixed position measuring devices that are used in an in-line or online operating position to measure physical and chemical measurands in water. It excludes chemical test kits and laboratory analysers. The general requirements include functional facilities that MDs need to meet users’ applications and information that needs to be included in associated documents. The test procedures specify uniform methods to be used when determining key performance characteristics of MDs. The performance tests comprise testing carried out under laboratory and field conditions. It is recognized that for some devices certain test procedures are not applicable. Statistical procedures are defined for evaluation of the test data. Example values for performance characteristics for a selection of MDs for monitoring waste water effluents and receiving waters are detailed in Annex A for guidance. This document requires the manufacturer of a MD to provide more technical data for verification than does EN ISO 15839:2006 [7]. Consequently, EN ISO 15839[7] will be of greater assistance to manufacturers wishing to characterize a new device whereas this document is more focussed on user requirements for the verification of manufacturer s claims.
3.16 measurement
uncertainty uncertainty of measurement uncertainty non-negative parameter characterizing the dispersion of the quantity values being attributed to a measurand, based on the information used Note 1 to entry: The parameter may be, for example, a standard deviation called standard measurement uncertainty (or a specified multiple of it), or the half-width of an interval, having a stated coverage probability. Note 2 to entry: In general, for a given set of information, it is understood that the measurement uncertainty is associated with a stated quantity value attributed to the measurand. A modification of this value results in a modification of the associated uncertainty. Note 3 to entry: Measurement uncertainty includes components arising from systematic effects, such as components associated with corrections and the assigned quantity values of measurement standards, as well as the definitional uncertainty. Sometimes estimated systematic effects are not corrected for but, instead, associated measurement uncertainty components are incorporated. Note 4 to entry: Measurement uncertainty comprises, in general, many components. Some of these may be evaluated by Type A evaluation of measurement uncertainty from the statistical distribution of the quantity values from series of measurements and can be characterized by standard deviations. The other components, which may be evaluated by Type B evaluation of measurement uncertainty, can also be characterized by standard deviations, evaluated from probability density functions based on experience or other information.
