German term or phrase: Impulshaltigkeit
context: Geräuschmessung an Werkzeugmaschinen
"Der sich aus dem Schalleitungspegel ergebende mittlere 1 m-Meßflächen-Schalldruckpegel und der arbeitsplatz-bezogene Emissionspegel dürfen die nachfolgend genannten Werte nicht überschreiten.
Aufstellung d. Maschine in Betriebsräumen 75 dB(A)
Aufstellung d. Maschine in Büroräume 60 dB(A)
..
Die Impulshaltigkeit der Geräusche darf nicht mehr als 5 dB(A) betragen.

thanks in advance.

English translation:impulse noise level OR impulsive noise content
Explanation:
The ref gives the following definition of 'Impulhaltigkeit':

Impulshaltigkeit
Mit der I. werden Geräusche gekennzeichnet, die schnelle Pegeländerungen enthalten (z.B. Knalle, Rammgeräusche). Wegen ihrer erhöhten Lästigkeit (erhöhte Auffälligkeit, Schreckwirkung) wird sie im »Beurteilungspegel durch einen Impulszuschlag berücksichtigt.
»Tonhaltigkeit

However, in your context, assuming that there is a direct connection between the first part of the provided context and the last line, I would think that they means that the total (average) noise level must not exceed X, and the the portion of the noise that is impulse noise must not exceed Y.

PS the ref might be generally useful.

pulse volume


Explanation:
"haltigkeit" -> content of
"Impuls" = pulse in the case of sound
But "pulse content" somehow does not sound right. So the size of the pulse content, i.e. its volume, would serve btter, I think.
