Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of base station equipment with radiofrequency electromagnetic field exposure limits (110 MHz - 100 GHz), when put into service

This product standard is related to human exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields transmitted by base station equipment in the frequency range 110 MHz to 100 GHz.
The object is to assess the compliance of such equipment with the general public basic restrictions (directly or indirectly via compliance with reference levels) and the workers’ exposure limits values (directly or indirectly via compliance with action values), when it is put into service in its operational environment.

Norme de produit pour démontrer la conformité des équipements de station de base aux limites d’exposition aux champs électromagnétiques radiofréquences, (110 MHz - 100 GHz), lors de leur mise en service

La présente norme de produit porte sur l’exposition des personnes aux champs électromagnétiques radiofréquences produits par les équipements de station de base dans la plage de fréquences de 110 MHz à 100 GHz. La présente norme a pour objet de vérifier, lors de leur mise en service dans leur environnement de fonctionnement, la conformité de ces équipements aux restrictions de base pour l’exposition du public (directement ou indirectement via la conformité aux niveaux de référence) et aux valeurs limites d’exposition des travailleurs (directement ou indirectement via la conformité aux niveaux d’action).

Produktni standard za prikaz skladnosti opreme baznih postaj z mejnimi vrednostmi v povezavi z izpostavljenostjo elektromagnetnim sevanjem (110 MHz - 100 GHz), namenjene za uporabo

Ta standard za proizvode obravnava izpostavljenost prebivalstva radiofrekvenčnim elektromagnetnim sevanjem opreme baznih postaj v frekvenčnem območju od 110 MHz do 100 GHz.
Cilj tega standarda je ocena skladnosti take opreme z osnovnimi omejitvami za prebivalstvo (neposredno ali posredno na podlagi skladnosti z referenčnimi ravnmi) in mejnimi vrednostmi izpostavljenosti delavcev (neposredno ali posredno na podlagi skladnosti z opozorilnimi vrednostmi) pri začetku uporabe te opreme v ustreznem delovnem okolju.

European foreword

This document (EN 50401:2017) has been prepared by CLC/TC 106X “Electromagnetic fields in the

human environment”.
The following dates are fixed:
• latest date by which this document has to be (dop) 2018-07-24
implemented at national level by publication of an
identical national standard or by endorsement
• latest date by which the national standards conflicting (dow) 2020-07-24
with this document have to be withdrawn
This document supersedes EN 50401:2006.

EN 50401:2017 includes the following significant technical changes with respect to EN 50401:2006:

1) the standard requires that the assessment has to take into account all reasonably foreseeable

operating conditions (Clause 4);

2) the standard covers equipment intended for use only by workers as well as equipment intended for

use by the general public and different limits are given for each case (Clause 5).

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European Commission

and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s).

For the relationship with EU Directive(s) see informative Annex ZZ, which is an integral part of this

document.

1 Scope

This product standard is related to human exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields transmitted

by base station equipment in the frequency range 110 MHz to 100 GHz.

The object is to assess the compliance of such equipment with the general public basic restrictions

(directly or indirectly via compliance with reference levels) and the workers’ exposure limits values

(directly or indirectly via compliance with action levels), when it is put into service in its operational

environment.
2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are

indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated

references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

EN 62232:2017, Determination of RF field strength, power density and SAR in the vicinity of

radiocommunication base stations for the purpose of evaluating human exposure (IEC 62232:2017)

Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC of 12 July 1999 on the limitation of exposure of the general public

to electromagnetic fields (0 Hz to 300 GHz) (Official Journal L 199, 30.6.1999, p. 59-70)

Directive 2013/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on the minimum

health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical

agents (electromagnetic fields) (20th individual Directive within the meaning of Article 16(1) of

Directive 89/391/EEC) and repealing Directive 2004/40/EC (Official Journal L 179, 29.6.2013, p. 1–21)

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1
action levels

levels which are provided for practical exposure assessment purposes and which are derived from

exposure limit values

Note 1 to entry: Respect of the action level will ensure respect of the relevant exposure limit value. If the action level

is exceeded, it does not necessarily follow that the exposure limit value will be exceeded.

3.2
ambient fields

background electromagnetic fields in the frequency range from at least 100 kHz to 300 GHz other than

the emissions from the EUT in the frequency range 110 MHz to 100 GHz
3.3
antenna

device that serves as a transducer between a guided wave (e.g. coaxial cable) and a free space wave, or

vice versa, and that can be used either to emit or to receive a radio signal

Note 1 to entry: In the present standard, if not mentioned, the term antenna is used only for emitting antenna(s).

3.4
average emitted power
time-averaged rate of energy transfer defined by:
P = P()t dt
aep
tt−
2 1
---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
SIST EN 50401:2018

where

t2 – t1 is the averaging time, t defined as a function of frequency in the Council Recommendation

avg
1999/519/EC of 12 July 1999;

P(t) is the power radiated by the antenna at the maximum duty cycle of the equipment at the

maximum power setting of the equipment
3.5
base station

fixed equipment including the radio transmitter and associated antenna(s) as used in wireless

telecommunications networks

Note 1 to entry: A base station comprises the hardware, including transceivers, necessary to transmit and receive

radio signals. Base stations with integrated antennas, base stations with connectors for external antennas and base

stations intended for use with external antennas not supplied by the same manufacturer are covered.

Note 2 to entry: Examples of BS equipment include base stations for mobile communications, radio-relays, wireless
