Short Range Devices (SRD); Radio equipment to be used in the 1 GHz to 40 GHz frequency range; Harmonised Standard for access to radio spectrum
|Publication Date:||1 July 2018|
The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for the following equipment types:
1) Non specific Short Range Devices, including alarms, telecommand, telemetry, data transmission in general, etc.
2) Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) devices.
3) Radiodetermination devices including detection, movement and alert applications.
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in the permitted frequency bands within the 1 GHz to 40 GHz range as specified in table 1:
1) with either a Radio Frequency (RF) output connection and dedicated antenna or an integral antenna;
2) for all types of modulation;
3) with or without speech.
NOTE 1: It should be noted that not all frequency bands in table 1 are implemented in all European countries. Annex B provides an overview of radio interfaces which are harmonised in the European Union. Annex C provides an overview of national radio interfaces not harmonised in the European Union. at date of publication.
NOTE 2: In addition, it should be noted that other frequency bands may be available in a country within the frequency range 1 GHz to 40 GHz covered by the present document. See the European Commission Decisions on Short Range Devices [i.5] and the CEPT ERC Recommendation 70-03 [i.2] as implemented through National Radio Interfaces (NRI) and additional NRI as relevant.
NOTE 3: On non-harmonised parameters, national administrations may impose certain conditions such as the type of modulation, frequency, channel/frequency separations, maximum transmitter radiated power, duty cycle, and the inclusion of an automatic transmitter shut-off facility, as a condition for the issue of an individual or general licence, or as a condition for the issuing of Individual Rights for use of spectrum or General Authorization, or as a condition for use "under licence exemption" as it is in most cases for Short Range Devices.
The present document covers fixed stations, mobile stations and portable stations.
Applications using Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology are not covered by the present document.
NOTE 4: The relationship between the present document and essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6] is given in Annex A.
