Wi-Fi Router Use & Electronic Medical
Equipment
Keep Wi-Fi router a minimum of 15 centimeters
away from implanted cardiac pacemakers or
implanted defibrillators.
Radio waves may interfere with the operation of implanted
cardiac pacemakers or implanted defibrillators.
This section is based on "Guidelines on Safeguarding
Medical Equipment from Electromagnetic Waves from Mobile
Phones and Other Devices" (Electromagnetic Compatibility
Conference Japan), and "Research Report on the Influence of
Electromagnetic Waves on Medical Equipment" (Association of
Radio Industries and Businesses, March 2001).
When using electronic medical equipment
(other than implanted cardiac pacemakers/
defibrillators) outside of medical institutions,
consult device manufacturer about the
influence of radio waves.
Radio waves may interfere with the operation of electronic
medical equipment.
Wi-Fi router radio waves may affect electronic
medical equipment. Observe these guidelines in
medical institutions:
・Do not bring Wi-Fi router into an operating room, ICU

・Turn off Wi-Fi router in hospital wards.
・Turn off Wi-Fi router even in lobbies or areas where
use is permitted if there is electronic medical equipment
nearby.
・Observe the instructions of individual medical
institutions and do not use or bring Wi-Fi router into
prohibited areas.
Radio waves may interfere with the operation of implanted
cardiac pacemakers or implanted defibrillators.
Safety Precautions
There may be wearers of medical equipment
such as implanted pacemakers or defibrillators

RF Exposure Information/Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) Information
FCC RF Exposure Information
Your handset is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Information for this Product
・This product "203Z" meets international guidelines on radio
wave protection.
This product is designed to abide by permitted levels for
radio wave protection as recommended by international
guidelines. These international guidelines are set forth
by the World Health Organization in cooperation with the
ICNIRP**, and the permitted levels provide a sufficient
safety margin regardless of age and health of the user.
International guidelines define the permitted levels of
exposure for radio wave protection by an averaged Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit for this communication terminal is 2.0 watts/
kilogram (W/kg). The highest SAR value for this product is
0.584 W/kg when used in the following prescribed manner.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
individual products, all products meet the permitted levels.
・Use close to the body
To use this product close to the body, maintain a separation
of 1.0 cm from the body. This will ensure this product
meets international guidelines on radio wave protection*.
The World Health Organization has announced that "A large
number of studies have been performed over the last two
decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential
health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been
established as being caused by mobile phone use."
*A method of measuring SAR when a mobile phone is used
at positions other than at the ear was established in March
2010 through an international standard (IEC62209-2).
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection.
For more information about SAR, see the following websites:

http://www.tele.soumu.go.jp/e/sys/ele/body/index.htm
for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
The guidelines are based on standards that were developed
by independent scientific organization 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 handsets 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. 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 handset as reported to
the FCC when worn on the body in a holder or carry case, is
0.51 W/kg.
Body-worn Operation; This device was tested for typical
body-worn operations with the back of the handset kept
1.0 cm from the body. To maintain compliance with FCC RF
exposure requirements, use accessories that maintain a 1.0
cm separation distance between the user's body and the back
of the handset. The use of beltclips, holsters and similar
accessories should not contain metallic components in its
assembly.
The use of accessories that do not satisfy these requirements
may not comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, and
should be avoided.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this
model handset with all reported SAR levels evaluated as
in compliance with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR
information on this model handset is on file with the FCC
and can be found under the Display Grant section of http://
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/ after searching on FCC ID Q78MF98PUSH.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can
be found on FCC Radio Frequency Safety website at http://
transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/.

Electromagnetic Safety
For body worn operation, this mobile phone has been tested
and meets RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory
containing no metal and positioning the handset a minimum 10
mm from the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure
compliance with RF exposure guidelines.

European RF Exposure Information
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended 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 guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile
devices is 2.0 W/kg. As mobile devices offer a range of
functions, they can be used in other positions, such as on the
body as described in this User Guide. In this case, the highest
tested SAR value is 1.46 W/kg**. As SAR is measured utilizing
the devices highest transmitting power the actual SAR of this
device while operating is typically below that indicated above.
This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the
device to ensure it only uses the minimum level required to
reach the network.
The World Health Organization has stated that present
scientific information does not indicate the need for any
special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They note
that if you want to reduce your exposure then you can do so
by limiting the length of calls or using a hands-free device to
keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.
*The tests are carried out in accordance with international
guidelines for testing.
**A method of measuring SAR when a mobile phone is used at
positions other than at the ear was established in March 2010
through an international standard (IEC62209-2). MIC technical
regulation was reported in October 2011 by the Information
and Communications Council.
