VehicleNoiseVehicle Noise Measurement

In a world where there is a drive for everything to be quieter, vehicle noise measurement and control is a growing application.

If measurements need to be made to ISO 5130:2007, which is an internationally recognised standard for vehicle exhaust noise testing, a more detailed vehicle noise measurement needs to be made. ISO 5130:2007 requires three consecutive measurements to ensure repeatability. These measurements are taken at a specified engine speed, or RPM, and the maximum sound level produced during the test is taken.

Once three valid measurements have been made, the highest is taken and used as the valid result. The microphone can be placed at the specified measurement position, typically 45 degrees and 0.5m from the exhaust of the vehicle under test.

The Pulsar Quantifier Model 91 Sound Level Meter is the ideal meter to perform effective vehicle noise measurements. The pre-amplifier can be removed from the instrument, connected via a cable and located next to the exhaust in the correct position. This allows the sound level meter to be read from the driver’s seat so the correct engine speed can be set. Please also refer to our latest range of professional sound level meters, the Pulsar Nova also suitable for vehicle noise measurement and vehicle noise testing.
