Safety Warnings
Ethernet Ports Caution
The Ethernet ports are not designed to be connected to a Public Telecommunication Network or used
outside the building.
RF Safety
The remote modems are cellular devices. It is important to follow any special regulations regarding the use
of radio equipment due in particular to the possibility of Radio Frequency (RF) interference.
Caution: A separation distance of at least 20 cm must be maintained between the modem transmitter’s
antenna and the body of the user or nearby persons. The modem is not designed for or intended to be used
in portable applications within 20 cm of the body of the user.
Check your local standards regarding safe distances, etc.
„
Operation of a cellular modem close to other electronic equipment may also cause interference if the
equipment is inadequately protected. Observe any warning signs and manufacturers’
recommendations.
„
Different industries and businesses have their own restrictions governing the use of cellular devices.
Please observe the local restrictions of the environment where you intend to operate the cell modem.
„
Under no circumstances should antenna be placed outdoors.
Internal Lithium Battery
„
„
„
A lithium battery located within product provides backup power for the timekeeping capability. The
battery has an estimated life expectancy of ten years.
When the battery starts to weaken, the date and time may be incorrect. If the battery fails, the board
must be sent back to Multi-Tech Systems for battery replacement.
Lithium cells and batteries are subject to the Provisions for International Transportation. Multi-Tech
Systems Inc. confirms that the Lithium batteries used in the Multi-Tech product(s) referenced in this
manual comply with Special Provision 188 of the UN Model Regulations, Special Provision A45 of the
ICAO-TI/IATA-DGR (Air), Special Provision 310 of the IMDG Code, and Special Provision 188 of the ADR
and RID (Road and Rail Europe).
Warning! There is danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced!
MultiConnect rCell 100 Series User Guide

Interference with Pacemakers and Other Medical Devices
Potential interference
Radiofrequency energy (RF) from cellular devices can interact with some electronic devices. This is
electromagnetic interference (EMI). The FDA helped develop a detailed test method to measure EMI of
implanted cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from cellular devices. This test method is part of the
Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) standard. This standard allows
manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from cellular device EMI.
The FDA continues to monitor cellular devices for interactions with other medical devices. If harmful
interference occurs, the FDA will assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.
Precautions for pacemaker wearers
If EMI occurs, it could affect a pacemaker in one of three ways:
„
Stop the pacemaker from delivering the stimulating pulses that regulate the heart's rhythm.
„
Cause the pacemaker to deliver the pulses irregularly.
„
Cause the pacemaker to ignore the heart's own rhythm and deliver pulses at a fixed rate.
Based on current research, cellular devices do not pose a significant health problem for most pacemaker
wearers. However, people with pacemakers may want to take simple precautions to be sure that their
device doesn't cause a problem.
„
Keep the device on the opposite the side of the body from the pacemaker to add extra distance
between the pacemaker and the device.
„
Avoid placing a turned-on device next to the pacemaker (for example, don’t carry the device in a shirt
or jacket pocket directly over the pacemaker).

Cellular Information
Antenna System for Cellular Devices
The cellular/wireless performance is completely dependent on the implementation and antenna design. The
integration of the antenna system into the product is a critical part of the design process; therefore, it is
essential to consider it early so the performance is not compromised. If changes are made to the certified
antenna system of the MultiConnect, then recertification will be required by specific network carriers such
as Sprint. The antenna system is defined from the SMA connector.
PTCRB Requirements for the Antenna
There cannot be any alteration to the authorized antenna system. The antenna system must maintain the
same specifications. The antenna must be the same type, with similar in-band and out-of-band radiation
patterns.
