Under IEC and ANSI standards, a sound intensity measuring system consists of a two microphone sound intensity probe and a dual channel processor. The accuracy of the intensity measurement is strongly dependent upon the phase accuracy between the two measurement channels, including the microphones. Sound intensity measurement systems are classified into Class 1 or 2 based upon the pressure-residual-intensity index which is measured using a residual intensity testing device. For direct calibration or verification of the accuracy of a sound intensity measurement system, IEC 1043 and ANSI S1.9 call for the use of a sound intensity calibrator which delivers to the probe microphones the simulated intensity at a specified temperature, atmospheric pressure and nominal microphone separation.
