ETSI - EN 302 208-2
Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Radio Frequency Identification Equipment operating in the band 865 MHz to 868 MHz with power levels up to 2 W Part 2: Harmonised EN under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive
|Publication Date:||1 December 2003|
The present document covers the minimum characteristics considered necessary in order to make the best use of the available frequencies. It does not necessarily include all the characteristics that may be required by a user, nor does it necessarily represent the optimum performance achievable.
Radio frequency identification equipment covered within the
present document are considered by definition short-range devices.
The power limits for frequency bands will be found in the current
version of CEPT/ERC/Recommendat
The present document applies to RFID interrogators used in conjunction with their RFID transponders (tags). The interrogators operate within 200 kHz sub-bands using a modulated carrier. The tags respond with a modulated signal. Interrogators may be used with either integral or external antennas.
ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements are covered by EN 301 489 [3 .
The types of equipment covered by the present document are as follows:
• fixed interrogators;
• hand portable interrogators;
• batteryless tags;
• attery assisted tags;
• battery powered tags.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC  (R&TTE Directive) 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  will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site
