Certification information (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
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 measurement 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.

This equipment complies with the European Council Recommendation of 12 July 1999 on the Limitation of Exposure of the General Public to Electromagnetic Fields [1999/519/EC].
