Radio Testing

RN Electronics - the route to compliance for your radio products, including Wi-Fi, Radio and Telecoms equipment.

Given the vast array of electronic products containing radio devices being placed on the worldwide market it is essential to comply with the complex regulations that vary from region to region. At RN we have vast experience in ensuring legal compliance to meet local wireless regulations and our knowledgeable engineers are experts in radio/wireless product testing, including RF design troubleshooting, certifications/approvals and antenna testing.

Our product testing can help you meet key requirements to support CE marking in Europe under the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), FCC (USA) and ISED (Canada). Many other countries can be covered with the same standards, so please make contact for advice on specific countries.

Our testing covers Bluetooth (Classic (with EDR) & Low Energy), ZigBee (DSSS), Wi-Fi (2.4 & 5 GHz WLAN), Short Range Devices (SRD) including Z-Wave, RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification), Induction Loop, Land Mobile Service (Analogue & Digital), Near-field Communication (NFC), Millimetre Wave (mmW), Satellite Positioning (GNSS), GPS and Cellular Technologies like GSM 2G/3G/LTE/4G in base stations and repeaters, Private Mobile Radio (PMR). This is also a requirement for marine radio and fixed link equipment.

Radio Standards

Radio Equipment Directive (2014/53/EU)

The Radio Equipment Directive (2014/53/EU) has been in force since June 2016. From June 2017 onwards Radio Equipment placed on the European Market must comply with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED).

If you are a Radio Equipment manufacturer, importer or distributor then the Radio Equipment Directive is the only route for radio devices to be placed onto the European Market fully replacing the R&TTE Directive from 13 June 2017.

Certification with the FCC / ISED

Electrical equipment marketed in the USA and Canada requires authorisation. There are two authorisation routes, SDoC and Certification. We can support these routes to compliance, including certification with the FCC and / or ISED.
