Radio Equipment Directive (RED)
The recent requirements for RED (Radio Equipment Directive) compliance replacing the existing R&TTE directive, requires MultiTech devices to meet the RED requirements in order to be shipped and deployed in Europe after June 13, 2017. Devices can still be deployed in North America, and other world regions where RED is not a requirement.
The RED defines the scope of equipment covered as "equipment which intentionally emits or receives radio waves for the purpose of radio communication or radio-determination and makes systematic use of radio spectrum." Effective June 13, 2017, any transceiver, transmitter, receiver or product which contains a radio communication or radio determination function must comply with the RED requirements. To be compliant to RED, wireless devices will require new and additional testing. However, the specifics of the testing are directly related to the changes in specific standards that the product was previously tested against. All products must be compliant to the latest requirements of RED by June 13, 2017.
