ISO/IEC 24769-2:2013 defines the test methods for determining the conformance of 2,4 GHz real-time locating system (RTLS) tags with the specifications given in the corresponding subclauses of ISO/IEC 24730-2, but does not apply to the testing of conformity with regulatory or similar requirements.
The test methods require only that the mandatory functions, and any optional functions which are implemented, be verified. This may in appropriate circumstances be supplemented by further, application-specific functionality criteria that are not available to the general case.
The RTLS tag conformance parameters included in ISO/IEC 24769-2:2013 include the mandatory direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) 2,4 GHz radio frequency beacon. It also includes the optional on-off keyed, frequency shift keyed (OOK/FSK) short-range radio frequency link and the optional magnetic air interface.
Unless otherwise specified, the tests in ISO/IEC 24769-2:2013 apply exclusively to RTLS tags defined in ISO/IEC 24730-2.
