ANSI S1.4-1983Specification for Sound Level Meters3.DEFINITIONS
A transmission having multiple discrete gear ratios which are individually selectable by the vehicle operator.
A transmission which does not have multple discrete gear ratios individually selectable by the vehicle operator.
The engine speed in revolutions per minute at which the engine delivers its maximum net brake power as defined in SAEJ1349 as determined by the manufacturer.
As defined in SAE J213.
4.1 The following instrumentation shall be used where applicable:
4.1.1 A sound level meter which meets the Type 1 or Type S1A requirements of ANSI S1.4-1983. As an alternative to making direct measurements using a sound level meter, a microphone or sound level meter may be used withrecorder or other indicating instrument, provided that the system meets the requirements of SAE J184.
4.1.2 A sound level calibrator with an accuracy of +0.5dB dB conforming to IEC942(1988) Class 1 andJor ANSI S1.40-1984 (see 9.6.4).
4.1.3 An engine speed tachometer, or other means of determining engine speed, with a steady-state accuracy of ±3%at 60% and 100% of rated engine speed.
4.1.4 A speedometer with steady-state accuracy of 13% at a vehice speed of 50 km/h (31 mph).4.1.5 An anemometer with steady-state accuracy of ±10% at a wind speed of 5.5 mls (12 mph).
4.1.6 An acceptable wndscreen may be used with the microphone. To be acceptable, the screen shall not affect the
microphone response more than +1 dB for frequencies of 63 to 4000 Hz and 土1.5 dB for frequencies of 4000 to10000 Hz, taking into account the orientation of the microphone.
5.1 The test site (Figure 1) shall be a flat open space accommodating a straight vehicle path and the following points:On the vehicle path-
a. The microphone target point
b. Acceleration point – a point 7.5 m (25 ft) prior to the microphone target pointc. End point – a point 30 m(100) beyond the microphone target point
d. A point 15 m (50 ft) prior to the microphone target point
e. A point 15 m (50 ft) beyond the microphone target point Off the vehicle path-
f. Microphone point – a point 15 m (50 ft) from the vehicle path on the perpendicular line which passes through themicrophone target point
g.Measurement area
