Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Short Range Devices (SRD); Radio equipment in the frequency range 9 kHz to 25 MHz and inductive loop systems in the frequency range 9 kHz to 30 MHz; Part 2: Harmonized EN covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive
|Publication Date:||1 March 2015|
The present document applies to Short Range Devices (SRDs) transmitters and receivers as described in the scope of ETSI EN 300 330-1 .
The present document covers transmitters intended to operate in the frequency range as defined in the Commission Decision 2006/771/EC [i.4] on harmonization of the radio spectrum for use by short-range devices as amended by Commission Decision 2013/752/EU of 11 December 2013 [i.6] and the CEPT/ERC/REC 70-03 [i.5].
The document applies to:
1) Generic Short range Devices including transmitters operating in the range from 9 kHz to 25 MHz; and
2) inductive loop transmitters operating from 9 kHz to 30 MHz including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and EAS equipments operating in LF and HF ranges and for radio equipment including wireless power transfer (WPT) function in the same frequency range;
3) receivers of systems as defined by bullets 1 and 2;
4) these radio equipment types are capable of operating in the permitted frequency bands within the 9 kHz to 30 MHz range as specified in table 1:
- either with a Radio Frequency (RF) output connection and dedicated antenna or with an integral antenna;
- for all types of modulation;
- with or without speech.
Table 1 shows a list of the frequency bands as designated to Short Range Devices by some European Commission Decisions and the CEPT/ERC/REC 70-03 [i.5] as known at the date of publication of the present document.
NOTE 1: It should be noted that table 1 represents the most widely implemented position within the European Union and the CEPT countries, but it should not be assumed that all designated bands are available in all countries.
NOTE 2: In addition, it should be noted that other frequency bands may be available in a country within the frequency range 9 kHz to 30 MHz covered by the present document.
NOTE 3: On non-harmonized 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 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.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of article 3.2 of Directive 1999/5/EC [i.2] (R&TTE Directive), 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 [i.2] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
