C er tification inf ormation (SAR)
The device meets 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 recommended CTmpT T aTcT wT T T C TT TT TaT T TTaT CT aTdaT dT 91
by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed
by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include
safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure guidelines for devices employ a unit of measure-
ment known as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR
limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg)
averaged over 10 grams of tissue. 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 actual SAR level of an operating device can be below the
maximum value because the device is designed to use only the
power required to reach the network.
