6.5 Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)
THIS MODEL DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radiofrequency
(RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based
on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. 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
1.6 W/kg. * Tests for SAR are conducted with the device transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined
at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the device while
operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the device is
designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required
to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station
antenna, the lower the power output. Before a device model is available for sale
to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the
limit established by the government adopted requirement for safe exposure. The
tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the
body) as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR value for this model device when tested for use at the ear
is 1.01 W/Kg and when worn on the body, as described in this userguide,
is 0.741 W/Kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements). While
there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and
at various positions, they all meet the government requirement for safe
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model device is on file with
the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of http:// www.
fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on UM100.
