FRITZ!Powerline 540E Service - Knowledge Base
FRITZ!Powerline and electromagnetic interference
There are standards that limit the emission of high-frequency interference for all electronic devices. The standard EN 55022 (Information technology equipment - Radio disturbance characteristics - Limits and methods of measurement) applies for FRITZ!Powerline adapters. FRITZ!Powerline thus does not cause any more interference than power drills, refrigerators, or similar appliances.
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.
