The Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) of Canada publishes RSS-246 for ultra-low power (ULP) wireless medical capsule endoscopy devices operating in the 430-440 MHz band.
This standard sets out the certification requirements for licence-exempt ultra-low power wireless medical capsule endoscopy devices operating in the 430-440 MHz frequency band and is in force as of 3/28/2019.
A transition period of six (6) months following the date of this publication is permitted. During this time, compliance with the following are both accepted:
- RSS-210, issue 9, Licence-Exempt Radio Apparatus: Category I Equipment
- RSS-246, issue 1, Ultra-Low Power (ULP) Wireless Medical Capsule Endoscopy Devices Operating in the 430-440 MHz Band
After this period, only applications for certification of equipment that complies with the requirements in RSS-246, issue 1, will be accepted.
Ultra-low power wireless medical capsule endoscopy devices are used to observe the human gastrointestinal tract. A capsule camera (CCam) wirelessly transmits the images to an external dedicated data recorder (DR) receiver, and from there, transferred to a computer for examination.
The following document can also be consulted for the application of RSS-246:
- ETSI EN 303 520 v1.1.1 (2018-07), Short Range Devices (SRD); Ultra Low Power (ULP) wireless medical capsule endoscopy devices operating in the band 430 MHz to 440 MHz
RSS-246 shall be used in conjunction with RSS-Gen, for general specifications and information relevant to the equipment to which RSS-246 applies.
