When measured with an American National Standards Institute Specifications For Sound Level Meters, ANSI S1.4, Type 1, sound level meter set to A-weighting and slow response, the emitted noise level shall not exceed 80 decibels (dB) for the following conditions:
Any equipment operating condition or mode excluding the required audible start-up alarm signals.
Measurements shall be taken one (1) foot (30 cm) from the external platform (geometric plane) surface, at a height of five (5) feet (152 cm) from the floor or other walking surface, and circumscribing the machine. Due to different postural or working positions, e.g. sitting in a chair, the height from the floor may be changed to reflect a different expected operator's...
