Radio waves
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES
Your device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed
the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields)
recommended by international guidelines. The guidelines were developed by
an independent scientific organization (ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety
margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The
highest SAR value under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device model is:
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions
under which it was recorded:
Body worn 2.4GHz WLAN 1.07 W/Kg
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the
values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to
minimize interference on the network, the operating power of your device is
automatically decreased when full power is not needed. The lower the power
output of the device, the lower its SAR value.
Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 0 mm.
To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device should
be positioned at least this distance away from the body.
If you are not using an approved accessory, ensure that whatever product is
used is free of any metal and that it positions the device the indicated distance
away from the body.
Organizations such as the World Health Organization and the US Food and Drug
Administration have suggested that if people are concerned and want to reduce
their exposure they could use a hands-free accessory to keep the wireless device
away from the head or body during use, or reduce the amount of time spent on
the device.9 10
