ISO 5131:2015 pdf download.Tractors for agriculture and forestry — Measurement of noise at the operator’s position — Survey method
1 Scope
This International Standard specifies a method for the measuring and reporting of the noise at the operator(s) position of a tractor used in agriculture and forestry. The measured noise relates only to the basic machine and applies to tractors with machine-carried operators. The results provide information to the operator(s) in order to avoid exposing themselves to noise levels that could put their hearing at risk. The conditions specified for the operation of the machines during the measurements are defined to provide a realistic and repeatable assessment of the maximum noise an operator should be subjected to when operating a machine. The test procedures specified in this International Standard are survey methods as defined in ISO 12001.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1 agricultural tractor
self-propelled agricultural vehicle having at least two axles and wheels, or endless tracks, particularly designed to pull agricultural trailers and pull, push, carry, and operate implements used for agricultural work (including forestry work), which may be provided with a detachable loading platform
Note 1 to entry: The agricultural vehicle has a maximum design speed of not less than 6 km/h and may be equipped with one or more seats.

3.2 power take-off power
power measured at the dynamometer coupled to any shaft (with the tractor stationary) designed by the tractor manufacturer to be used as a power take-off
[SOURCE: ISO 789-1:1990, 3.2]
5 Instrumentation
5.1 A precision quality sound level meter shall be used meeting or exceeding the requirements of IEC 61672-1 for a class 1 instrument. If alternative measuring equipment is used, the tolerances shall not exceed those given in the relevant clauses of IEC 61672-1 for a class 1 instrument. Measurement shall be carried out with a frequency weighting network in conformity with curve A and set to give slow response as described in IEC 61672-1.
5.2 The calibration of the equipment at the time of measurement shall be in accordance in all respects with the specifications of IEC 61672-1 for a class 1 instrument. Checking of the calibration shall be carried out at appropriate intervals and at least before and after each measurement session, using an acoustical calibrator in accordance with the specifications of IEC 60942 for a class 1 instrument. The calibrator shall be checked annually to verify its output and its calibration shall be traceable to a national standards laboratory.
