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

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 25 MHz to 1000 MHz (EN 300 220 series, EN 303 406, 303 204),
    including SRD in data networks (EN 303 659) and broadband data transmission SRD (EN 304 220)
  • SRD in the frequency range from 1 GHz to 40 GHz (EN 300 440 series)
  • RFID (EN 302 208)
  • SRD cover the frequency range below 9 kHz, e.g. robotic mowers (EN 303 447), metal sensors (EN 303 454),
    nuclear magnetic resonance technology (EN 303 658) and inductive bonding systems (EN 303 734)

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.
