See standard on harmoneeritud standard komisjoni määruste (EL) nr 206/2012 ja 626/2011 mõistes, arvestades järgmist märkust: "Käesolev standard ei hõlma olmeventilaatoreid. Komisjoni teatist 2012/C 172/01 kohaldatakse siiski ka olmeventilaatoritele."
This European Standard establishes requirements for determining, in accordance with a standardized procedure, the sound power level emitted into the surrounding air by air conditioners, heat pumps, liquid chilling packages with electrically driven compressors when used for space heating and/or cooling, and/or for process, as described in the EN 14511 series and dehumidifiers as described in EN 810.
This European Standard also covers the measurement of the sound power level of evaporatively cooled condenser air conditioners, as defined in EN 15218. However, the measurement will be done without external water feeding and these units will thus be considered as the other air conditioners covered by the EN 14511 series.
It is emphasized that this measurement standard only refers to airborne noise.
