News for Canada


  • Consultation of ICES-001

    The Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada is seeking comments on the following CONSULTATION: ICES-001, issue 5, “Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) Equipment” sets the minimum requirements applicable to industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) equipment. These requirements include limits for and methods of measurement of radiated and conducted radio frequency emissions produced by ISM equipment, as well as administrative requirements applicable to such equipment.

    Consultation of ICES-001, Issue 5, Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) Equipment ( available in English and French)

    Comments are due no later than March 20, 2020.

  • New Requirements for Wireless Device Testing Laboratories

    Since 15th of March 2019 the Innovation, Science and Economic Development of Canada (ISED) has published the "Decision on New Requirements for Wirelees Device Testing Laboratories".

    The increasing complexity of the equipment and the intricacies of the regulatory requirements demand more technical expertise from stakeholders involved in the conformity assessment process. Accredited testing laboratories (by ISED) generally submit higher quality test reports, therefore providing greater confidence in the competencies of these testing laboratories to perform compliance assessments to domestic technical rules.

    Here the link of the Decision: https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf11322.html

     


  • New standard specifications

    The Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) has published new radio standards specification (RSS-130 Issue 2 replacing Issue 1) for equipment operating in the frequency bands 617-652 MHz, 663-698 MHZ, 689-756 MHz and 777-787 MHz.

    The main changes are listed below:

    • Add the frequency bands 617-652 MHz and 663-698 MHz and the related requirements to the standard.

    • Add a provision for a transition period regarding RSS-130 issue 1.

    • Change equipment’s equivalent isotopically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) to effective radiated power (e.r.p.).

     • Clarify that the equipment’s unwanted emission limit shall be met at the highest and lowest frequency of the frequency block range that contains the equipment operating frequencies.

    • Clarify that equipment’s measurement shall be performed only with the carrier frequency set at the lowest frequency and highest frequency in each frequency bands.

    • Add guidance on determining the occupied bandwidth when measuring frequency stability limits for equipment able to transmit numerous channels simultaneously.

    • Remove measurement section on multiple antennas since the measurement method is defined in ANSI C63.26, American National Standard for Compliance Testing of Transmitters Used in Licensed Radio Service (referenced in RSS-Gen, General Requirements for Compliance of Radio Apparatus).

Safety Information for Canada

Type A Plug
Type A Sock Type A Plug Type A Sock
Netzspannung
120V

Netzfrequenz
60Hz
Description
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
Type B Plug
Type B Sock Type B Plug Type B Sock
Netzspannung
120V

Netzfrequenz
60Hz
Description
The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly. Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.
