This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference
to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to
try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Ingenico could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Canadian Department of Communications (DOC) Warnings:
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from the digital apparatus as set out
in the radio interference regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.

RF Exposure Warning:
This unit has been shown to be capable of compliance for localized specific absorption rate (SAR) for uncontrolled
environment/general population exposure limits specified in ANSI/IEEE Std. C95.1-1992 and had been tested in
accordance with the measurement procedures specified in FCC/OET Bulletin 65 Supplement C (2001) and IEEE Std.
1528-200X (Draft 6.5, January 2002).
This device and its antenna must not be co-located or operating with any other antenna or transmitter except Grant
condition. Users are not permitted to modify this transmitter device. Any unauthorized change made to this device could
void your authority to operate this device.
For body worn operation, to maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, use only accessories that contain
no metallic components and provide a separation distance of 15mm (0.6 inches) to the body. Use of other accessories
may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
Ministry of Health (Canada), Safety Code 6. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg *.
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile terminals used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over
one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public
and to account for any variations in measurements.
