ETSI - EN 303 131
Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Short Range Devices; Wireless alarms with low duty cycle; Harmonized EN covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
The present document applies to wireless alarms equipment using low duty cycle, as described in clause 4 and in ETSI TS 103 060 [i.7], as a means of enhancing reliability of radio communications.
The present document also applies to any wireless alarm that meets the usage restrictions for the frequency concerned.
SRD alarms and social alarms are also covered in the scope of alternative standards, e.g. ETSI EN 300 220-2 [i.8].
NOTE 1: The non specific frequency bands in table 1b are primarily intended for all SRD types; therefore the same level of reliability as when operating on frequencies in table 1a may not be achieved.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC (R&TTE Directive) [i.2], Article 3.2, which states that "..... radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference".
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
