Abstract This international standard describes a method for determining the noise emitted by earth-moving machinery in terms of the A-weighted sound power level while the machine is working under dynamic test conditions. Contents: definitions; instrumentation; requirements for the test environment; technique for the measurement of equivalent continuous A-weighted sound power level. Annexes describe procedures for specific types of equipment.
