The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for Metering Devices category equipment types:
• Metering devices category is defined by the EU Commission Decision 2013/752/EU [i.2] as:
"The metering device category covers radio devices that are part of bidirectional radio communications
systems which allow remote monitoring, measuring and transmission of data in smart grid infrastructures,
such as electricity, gas and water".
The present document covers equipment intended for fixed, mobile or nomadic use, e.g.:
• stand-alone radio equipment;
• plug-in radio devices intended for use with or within a variety of host systems;
• plug-in radio devices intended for use within combined equipment.
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in the metering designated frequency band given in table 1.
