3 Definition of terms, symbols and abbreviations
3.1 Terms

For the purposes of the present document, the terms given in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] and the following apply:

ancillary equipment: electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter

NOTE 1: It is considered as an ancillary equipment if:

 the equipment is intended for use with a receiver or transmitter to provide additional operational

and/or control features to the radio equipment (e.g. to extend control to another position or

location);

 the ancillary equipment cannot be used without being connected to radio equipment to provide user

functions independently of a receiver or transmitter; and

 the receiver or transmitter, to which it is connected, is capable of providing some intended

operation such as transmitting and/or receiving without the ancillary equipment (i.e. it is not a

sub-unit of the main equipment essential to the main equipment basic functions).

NOTE 2: An example of ancillary equipment would be a docking station for radio equipment whose interface is

dedicated to a particular product or range of products.

carrier-off state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it does not transmit any signal, either

authorized by a Centralized Control and Monitoring Functions (CCMF) or a Network Control Facility (NCF) when

designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

NOTE: The existence of a carrier-off state depends on the system of transmission used. For ES designed for

continuous transmission mode there may be no carrier-off state.

carrier-on state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it transmits a signal, either authorized by a

CCMF or a NCF when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

critical stored data: data that is essential for an EUT to perform a primary function in accordance with that EUT's

specification
NOTE: This may include data previously stored by the user.

drive equipment: equipment used to enable the EUT to operate as intended during the test process

terrestrial port: port for interconnecting earth-based equipment

transmission disabled state: state in which the ES is not authorized to transmit either by a CCMF or a NCF

respectively when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

3.1 Terms

For the purposes of the present document, the terms given in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] and the following apply:

ancillary equipment: electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter

NOTE 1: It is considered as an ancillary equipment if:

 the equipment is intended for use with a receiver or transmitter to provide additional operational

and/or control features to the radio equipment (e.g. to extend control to another position or

location);

 the ancillary equipment cannot be used without being connected to radio equipment to provide user

functions independently of a receiver or transmitter; and

 the receiver or transmitter, to which it is connected, is capable of providing some intended

operation such as transmitting and/or receiving without the ancillary equipment (i.e. it is not a

sub-unit of the main equipment essential to the main equipment basic functions).

NOTE 2: An example of ancillary equipment would be a docking station for radio equipment whose interface is

dedicated to a particular product or range of products.

carrier-off state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it does not transmit any signal, either

authorized by a Centralized Control and Monitoring Functions (CCMF) or a Network Control Facility (NCF) when

designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

NOTE: The existence of a carrier-off state depends on the system of transmission used. For ES designed for

continuous transmission mode there may be no carrier-off state.

carrier-on state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it transmits a signal, either authorized by a

CCMF or a NCF when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

critical stored data: data that is essential for an EUT to perform a primary function in accordance with that EUT's

specification
NOTE: This may include data previously stored by the user.

drive equipment: equipment used to enable the EUT to operate as intended during the test process

terrestrial port: port for interconnecting earth-based equipment

transmission disabled state: state in which the ES is not authorized to transmit either by a CCMF or a NCF

respectively when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

3 Definition of terms, symbols and abbreviations
3.1 Terms

For the purposes of the present document, the terms given in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] and the following apply:

ancillary equipment: electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter

NOTE 1: It is considered as an ancillary equipment if:

 the equipment is intended for use with a receiver or transmitter to provide additional operational

and/or control features to the radio equipment (e.g. to extend control to another position or

location);

 the ancillary equipment cannot be used without being connected to radio equipment to provide user

functions independently of a receiver or transmitter; and

 the receiver or transmitter, to which it is connected, is capable of providing some intended

operation such as transmitting and/or receiving without the ancillary equipment (i.e. it is not a

sub-unit of the main equipment essential to the main equipment basic functions).

NOTE 2: An example of ancillary equipment would be a docking station for radio equipment whose interface is

dedicated to a particular product or range of products.

carrier-off state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it does not transmit any signal, either

authorized by a Centralized Control and Monitoring Functions (CCMF) or a Network Control Facility (NCF) when

designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

NOTE: The existence of a carrier-off state depends on the system of transmission used. For ES designed for

continuous transmission mode there may be no carrier-off state.

carrier-on state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it transmits a signal, either authorized by a

CCMF or a NCF when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

critical stored data: data that is essential for an EUT to perform a primary function in accordance with that EUT's

specification
NOTE: This may include data previously stored by the user.

drive equipment: equipment used to enable the EUT to operate as intended during the test process

terrestrial port: port for interconnecting earth-based equipment

transmission disabled state: state in which the ES is not authorized to transmit either by a CCMF or a NCF

respectively when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

4.1 General

For the purposes of the present document, the test conditions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4 shall apply with the

following additions. Further product type related test conditions for Earth Stations are specified in the present

document.

For Earth Stations with or without ancillary equipment, and/or various terrestrial ports, the selection of test

configurations shall be determined. The assessment shall include sufficient representative configurations of the ES to

adequately exercise the equipment. These configurations shall be recorded in the test report.

In clauses 4.2 and 4.3, the Equipment Under Test (EUT) is an ES with the selected configuration of ancillary

equipment.
4.2 Arrangements for test signals
4.2.0 General

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.0 shall apply with the following additions.

In order to measure the system emissions and electromagnetic immunity under operational conditions, the following

arrangements shall be provided:

a) a drive equipment to put the ES terminal in its normal operating mode, and providing the ES with a receive

signal to emulate the operational conditions of reception. This equipment shall control the EUT, when it is

capable of transmission, so that it switches between the transmission disabled, carrier-on and carrier-off states;

b) a Quality of Transmission Measurement Apparatus (QTMA).
ETSI
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
11 Final draft ETSI EN 301 489-12 V3.2.0 (2021-09)

For the measurement of the quality of transmission, a communications link shall be established and the wanted input

signal shall be applied to the Radio Frequency (RF) input of the receiver via the antenna.

The QTMA and the source of the wanted input signal shall be located outside the test environment.

4.2.1 Arrangements for test signals at the input of transmitters
The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.1 shall apply.
4.2.2 Arrangements for test signals at the output of transmitters
The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.2 shall apply.
4.2.3 Arrangements for test signals at the input of receivers

The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.3 shall apply with the following addition.

For radiated immunity, the level of the wanted signal at the input of the receiver or the enclosure port of the EUT shall

be 20 dB (±3 dB) above the P for the EUT. For all other tests the level of the wanted signal, required to establish a

min
communication link, shall be representative of the EUT intended use.

NOTE: A simple method to establish the required communication link is to establish a link, reduce power to the

point of link failure then increase by 20 dB.
4.2.4 Arrangements for test signals at the output of receivers
The provisions of ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4.2.4 shall apply.

3.1 Terms

For the purposes of the present document, the terms given in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] and the following apply:

ancillary equipment: electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter

NOTE 1: It is considered as an ancillary equipment if:

 the equipment is intended for use with a receiver or transmitter to provide additional operational

and/or control features to the radio equipment (e.g. to extend control to another position or

location);

 the ancillary equipment cannot be used without being connected to radio equipment to provide user

functions independently of a receiver or transmitter; and

 the receiver or transmitter, to which it is connected, is capable of providing some intended

operation such as transmitting and/or receiving without the ancillary equipment (i.e. it is not a

sub-unit of the main equipment essential to the main equipment basic functions).

NOTE 2: An example of ancillary equipment would be a docking station for radio equipment whose interface is

dedicated to a particular product or range of products.

carrier-off state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it does not transmit any signal, either

authorized by a Centralized Control and Monitoring Functions (CCMF) or a Network Control Facility (NCF) when

designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

NOTE: The existence of a carrier-off state depends on the system of transmission used. For ES designed for

continuous transmission mode there may be no carrier-off state.

carrier-on state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it transmits a signal, either authorized by a

CCMF or a NCF when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

critical stored data: data that is essential for an EUT to perform a primary function in accordance with that EUT's

specification
NOTE: This may include data previously stored by the user.

drive equipment: equipment used to enable the EUT to operate as intended during the test process

terrestrial port: a port for interconnecting earth-based equipments

transmission disabled state: state in which the ES is not authorized to transmit either by a CCMF or a NCF

respectively when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

3 Definition of terms, symbols and abbreviations
3.1 Terms

For the purposes of the present document, the terms given in ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1] and the following apply:

ancillary equipment: electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter

NOTE 1: It is considered as an ancillary equipment if:

 the equipment is intended for use with a receiver or transmitter to provide additional operational

and/or control features to the radio equipment (e.g. to extend control to another position or

location);

 the ancillary equipment cannot be used without being connected to radio equipment to provide user

functions independently of a receiver or transmitter; and

 the receiver or transmitter, to which it is connected, is capable of providing some intended

operation such as transmitting and/or receiving without the ancillary equipment (i.e. it is not a

sub-unit of the main equipment essential to the main equipment basic functions).

NOTE 2: An example of ancillary equipment would be a docking station for radio equipment whose interface is

dedicated to a particular product or range of products.

carrier-off state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it does not transmit any signal, either

authorized by a Centralized Control and Monitoring Functions (CCMF) or a Network Control Facility (NCF) when

designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

NOTE: The existence of a carrier-off state depends on the system of transmission used. For ES designed for

continuous transmission mode there may be no carrier-off state.

carrier-on state: state in which the ES is authorized to transmit, and when it transmits a signal, either authorized by a

CCMF or a NCF when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation

critical stored data: data that is essential for an EUT to perform a primary function in accordance with that EUT's

specification
NOTE: This may include data previously stored by the user.

drive equipment: equipment used to enable the EUT to operate as intended during the test process

terrestrial port: a port for interconnecting earth-based equipments

transmission disabled state: state in which the ES is not authorized to transmit either by a CCMF or a NCF

respectively when designed for unattended operation or by local control when designed for attended operation
