EN 50083-2-4:2019

Cable networks often transmit signals at different frequencies. And each of them has its own specifics. Passive filters that work with signal transmission at 700 MHz and 800 MHz should be considered as a separate block. They have their own distinct characteristics for perception. That is why separate standard EN 50083-2-4:2019 was created.

This document provides requirements for passive filters intended to reduce RF interference from mobile Base Stations (BS) and User Equipment (UE) to receiving equipment and master antenna cable distribution systems of broadcast DVB-T and DVB-T2 signals in the VHF and UHF bands. While primarily intended to be used with VHF/UHF DVB-T and DVB-T2 receivers and signal distribution systems, filters can also be useful for mitigation of interference to VHF FM or DAB radio.

Continuing the topic of the influence of passive filters to reduce unwanted interference, we recommend that your specialists take this standard into account in their work. Compliance with these requirements will greatly improve signal quality and will help to work correctly with cable networks.

Health informatics -- Requirements for international machine-readable coding of medicinal product package identifiers

ISO/TS 16791:2014 NEW version ISO/TS 16791:2020

Certification of medical packaging is a strictly regulated process. From the side of information technology, the main task is to make it as user-friendly as possible. Coding must comply with the standards for achieving the most productive results. One of the most important industries that requires increased attention is healthcare, that is why a big amount of standards is created in this area. One of them is ISO/TS 16791:2014.

The document provides guidance on identification and labelling of medicinal products from the point of manufacture of packaged medicinal product to the point of dispensing the product. ISO/TS 16791:2014 outlines best practice for AIDC barcoding solutions for applications. Users can, however, consider the coding interoperability requirements for other AIDC technologies e.g. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).

General requirements for coding and labeling of goods makes it easier to work with them. That is why the need to integrate this standard into the work of companies is beyond doubt. To see more technical details of the document, follow the link to our website.
