R.E.D. Requirements for SRD Wireless Products
The current R&TTE (Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment) Directive (1999/5/EC) will be replaced by RED (2014/53/EU) and will be the only effective directive for EU’s wireless products from 12 Jun, 2017.
There are 14 new standards published in the latest RED Official Journal on 10 Mar, 2017 and 6 of them are related to Short Range Devices (SRD) wireless products:
- EN 300 220-2 V3.1.1
- EN 300 220-3-1 V2.1.1
- EN 300 220-3-2 V1.1.1
- EN 300 220-4 V1.1.1
- EN 300 330-2 V2.1.1
- EN 302 372 V2.1.1
New Requirements for SRD Devices
Non specific SRDs category devices shall meet the requirements of EN 300 220-2V3.1.1. Typical uses include telemetry, alarms, data transmissions in general and other applications.
- EN 300 220-3-1 V2.1.1 (2016-12) is specified for low duty cycle high reliability equipment, social alarms equipment operating on designated frequencies (869,200MHz-869,250MHz). Typical uses of social alarm are radio communication for indicating an alert condition at a distant location and to allow reliable communication for a person in distress or assist elderly or disabled people.
- EN 300 220-3-2 V1.1.1 (2017-02) covers equipment for wireless alarms operating in designated LDC/HR (Low Duty Cycle / High Reliability) and in frequency bands 868,60MHz-868,70MHz, 869,25MHz-869,40MHz, 869,65MHz-869,70MHz. Typical uses include alarm systems that use radio.
- EN 300 220-4 V1.1.1 (2017-02) covers metering devices operating in designated band 169,400MHz-169,475MHz. The metering device category covers radio devices that are part of bi-directional radio communications systems which allow remote monitoring, measuring and transmission of data in smart grid infrastructures, such as water, electricity and gas
