DIN EN 15726
Ventilation for buildings - Air diffusion - Measurements in the occupied zone of air-conditioned/ventilated rooms to evaluate thermal and acoustic conditions; German version EN 15726:2011
Lüftung von Gebäuden - Luftverteilung - Messungen im Aufenthaltsbereich von klimatisierten/belüfteten Räumen zur Bewertung der thermischen und akustischen Bedingungen; Deutsche Fassung EN 15726:2011
EN 15726 has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 156 "Ventilation for buildings" (secretariat: BSI, United Kingdom). NA 041-02-52 AA "Komponenten (SpA CEN/TC 156/WG 3 und 4)" ("Components (Mirror Committee of CEN/TC 156/WG 3 and 4)") of the Heating and Ventilation Technology Standards Committee (NHRS) at DIN, the German Institute for Standardization e. V., is the German committee responsible for the preparation of the German version. The standard is applicable to the measurement of some parameters of thermal and acoustic comfort (that is, temperatures, air velocities, etcetera) in a room with an air diffusion system. It can be used on site or in a lab for full-scale measurements. EN 15726 applies to ventilation or air conditioning systems designed to maintain the comfort conditions in buildings. It is not applicable in the case of systems for the control of industrial or other special process environments. In the latter case however, it may be referred to if the system technology is similar to that of the aforementioned ventilation and air conditioning systems.
