Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Short Range Devices (SRD); Medical Body Area Network Systems (MBANSs) operating in the 2 483,5 MHz to 2 500 MHz range; Part 1: Technical characteristics and test methods
|Publication Date:||1 November 2014|
The present document covers the minimum characteristics of Medical Body Area Network System (MBANS), including the spectrum monitoring and access requirements, considered necessary in order to make the best use of the available spectrum within the 2 483,5 MHz to2 500 MHz frequency range and to avoid harmful interference between MBANS and other users of this band. It does not necessarily include all the characteristics which may be required by a user, nor does it necessarily represent the optimum performance achievable.
The types of devices that can belong to MBANSs are on-body and off-body medical sensors, patient monitoring devices and medical actuators covered by the Medical Device Directive (Directive 93/42/EEC [i.7]).
The present document applies to the following MBANS applications which are considered to operate indoor:
• MBANS operating in the healthcare facility
• MBANS operating in the patient's home
The present document contains the following basic technical characteristics of MBANS radio equipment which are also addressed in annex 2 of CEPT/ERC/REC 70-03 [i.2]:
• Healthcare facility MBANS with 1 mW maximum e.i.r.p. and not more than 10 % duty cycle over a maximum emission bandwidth of 3 MHz.
• Patient's home MBANS with 10 mW maximum e.i.r.p. and not more than 2 % duty cycle over a maximum emission bandwidth of 3 MHz.
