UKAS Accredited Testing Now Includes Radio Devices
York EMC Services recently expanded its UKAS accredited testing services to include testing Radio devices to the R&TTE Directive (being replaced in June 2016 by the Radio Equipment Directive; RED).
UKAS Accredited Radio Testing
Accredited testing can be carried out against European Harmonised Standards for a range of devices including:
- 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
- Radio equipment to be used in the 25 MHz to 1000 MHz frequency range with power levels ranging up to 500 mW
- Close range inductive data communication equipment operating atÂ 13.56 MHz
- WidebandÂ transmission system in the 2.4 GHz band (radiated spurious emissions)
- Broadband Radio Access Networks (BRAN) 5 GHz high performance RLAN (radiated spurious emissions)
We offer a wide range of Radio and Telecommunications testing and are constantly adding to our accredited radio testing portfolio; please enquire for an updated list if your equipment is outside of this scope by contacting us here.
Using Pre-Approved Modules
Even if your radio modules are pre-approved with a matching antenna and the primary function of your device is not a radio product, the performance of the radio modules may be affected when incorporated into your product.
Under these circumstances we would recommend at least a partial re-test of radiated spurious emissions to ensure that the combined product remains compliant.
Training | Radio Equipment Directive Explained
We are offering a one day training course to bring you up to speed with the RED which comes into force on 13th June 2016 with a one year transition period. For more information or to book on the course please click here.
