FRITZ!Powerline 1220E Service - Knowledge Base
FRITZ!Powerline and electromagnetic interference
All electrical appliances are subject to standards that limit the emission of high-frequency interference. The standard EN 50561-1 (Power line communication apparatus used in low-voltage installations - Radio disturbance characteristics - Limits and methods of measurement - Part 1: Apparatus for in-home use) applies to FRITZ!Powerline adapters.
No disturbance of wireless communications applications is to be expected.
Radio reception is generally restricted to the FM band between 87.20 and 108.00 MHz. The FRITZ!Powerline band is significantly lower, at 2 to 68 MHz.
No disturbance of amateur radio bands are to be expected, either. Within the frequency bands of amateur radio, FRITZ!Powerline transmits at a lower level; the transmitting capacity is relatively low and through symmetrical coupling only a very small part of it is radiated by the power line.
