Short Range Devices Testing

Conformity assessment
of SRD products

By offering accredited Short Range Devices testing procedures, we help our customers to verify that their products meet all the regulatory requirements for SRD devices.

Short Range Devices

The definition “Short Range Device” can be applied to many different types of wireless devices, including:

  • Radio modules for data transmission
  • Wireless microphones, speakers, and other wideband audio and video applications
  • Radio LANs and Bluetooth® applications, W-LAN, HiperLAN, Home-RF, Wi-Fi®
  • Transponder systems and RFIDs
  • Remote control devices
  • Remote-controlled toys and model aircraft
  • Surveillance systems, alarm and emergency call systems
  • Traffic telematics applications, for example anti-collision radar
  • Radar level measurement devices
  • IoT applications such as sigfox, ZigBee, Z-Wave, mioty, LoRa, LoRaWAN

Requirements and standards

Short-range devices are often subject to less stringent regulations than other radio communications equipment. 
Generally, the operation of such equipment is license-exempt, but in certain cases an individual license may be required.

Like all radio equipment, however, short-range devices must comply with regulatory requirements.
For Europe, the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) applies here, and thus the following standards, among others:

  • SRD in the frequency range from 9 kHz to 30 MHz (ETSI EN 300 330)
  • SRD in the frequency range from 25 MHz to 1000 MHz (ETSI EN 300 220)
  • SRD in the frequency range from 1 GHz to 40 GHz (ETSI EN 300 440)

There are a large number of special application-specific standards that are used for approval:

  • RFID (ETSI EN 302 208; ETSI EN 300 330)
  • Professional Audio Equipment (ETSI EN 300 422)
  • Wireless Power Transmission (ETSI EN 303 417)
  • Analog radio applications; voice and/or data (ETSI EN 300 086; ETSI EN 300 113)
  • Radar applications (ETSI EN 300 440)

In our laboratories, we carry out radio tests for short-range devices quickly and professionally,
thus efficiently getting your products on the road to market approval.
