RN Electronics - the route to compliance for your radio products, including Wi-Fi, Radio and Telecoms equipment.
What is Radio Testing
Radio testing, or Radio Frequency testing, assesses radio equipment to ensure there is no interference with the devices and users of the nearby RF environment.
Why is Radio Testing Important
Radio testing is required to demonstrate compliance to most worldwide markets. Depending on the market / region, various compliance regimes are in place and are required to be followed to allow placing on that market compliant radio equipment. Radio equipment testing ensures that a device efficiently uses radio spectrum and also does not interfere with other radio spectrum users.
How We Can Help
RN Electronics has 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 the UKCA marking under the UK Radio Equipment Regulations, CE marking in Europe under the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU, 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 many common radio technologies used in a wide range of products. These radio technologies include:
• Bluetooth – Classic (with EDR) and Low Energy
• Wi-Fi – 2.4 and 5 GHz WLAN
• ZigBee – DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum) & LoRaWAN (Long-Range Wide-Area Network)
• Short Range Devices (SRD) – Including Z-Wave, RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification), Induction Loop, Land Mobile Service (Analogue and Digital), NFC (Near-field Communication)
• mmWave (Millimetre Wave) – Including wireless systems such as mmWave backhaul
• Satellite Positioning – GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System)
• GPS and Cellular Technologies – Including 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
