Land Mobile Service; Radio Equipment for use in a Paging Service operating within the frequency range 25 MHz - 470 MHz; Harmonised Standard covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU
|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
The present document applies to on-site and wide area paging equipment, operating in the frequency range of 25 MHz to 470 MHz.
An on-site paging system is a privately owned and operated wireless communication system, used in a restricted and predefined area, with the primary function to alert and/or inform ambulant people. The air interface of the system, using a single radio channel, comprises at least one transmitter. The system may be extended to include a return, or talk-back frequency. Mainly used for call acknowledgement, this frequency may also be used to supply some of the features of a mobile radio service, or other two-way radio services, without the need to use a separate system.
Covering a larger geographical area, a wide-area system is typically associated with large organizations such as emergency services and may include additional radio facilities and utilize different a frequency for return messaging, which is outside the scope of the present document.
These features should be tested against the relevant standard. The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for the following equipment types:
1) base station transmitters and transcoders, with or without an external 50 Ω antenna connector;
2) base station receivers, with a permanent 50 Ω connector;
3) paging receiver, with or without an external 50 Ω antenna connector.
The existence of a Harmonised Standard does not imply the availability of the above frequency spectrum for the particular types of equipment covered by the present document.
The present document covers the essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU under the conditions identified in annex A and contains requirements to demonstrate that "... Radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference" [i.1].
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 Radio Equipment Directive [i.1] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
