Noise and vibration measurement of small air-moving devices


  • To develop and maintain standard(s) and technical report(s) for the noise and vibration measurement and analysis of small air-moving devices (AMDs) used for cooling information technology and telecommunications equipment (ITTE).
  • To investigate noise and vibration issues of small AMDs used in the cooling of ITTE, and to propose recommended technical solutions.

Programme of work:

  1. To maintain ECMA-275 (including investigation of ISO counterparts, ISO 10302 Parts 1 and 2).
  2. To monitor technological developments and issues of noise and vibration from small AMDs and other related technologies for efficient cooling of ITTE.
  3. To develop recommendations, e.g. standards, for small AMD noise and vibration issues.
