Chapter 1: Safety Information
Exposure to Radio Use
TopoMate series is equipped with Bluetooth, WI-Fi and Cellular modem radio. In some
situation or area, user may be required to turn off the radios. For example;

User’s needs to turn the phone OFF when in an area posted “TURN OFF RADIO
SIGNAL.” to avoid interfering with blasting operations.

User needs to turn OFF the radio signal in health care facilities. Hospitals or health
care facilities may be using devices that sensitive to Radio Frequency energy.

Aviation authority regulations prohibit user from using phone while in the aircraft.
In order to prevent the handheld from emitting radio signals, do the following step:

To turn off the device:
Press and hold Power OFF button

to display the Power OFF menu then tap it
To turn off the Communication options e.g. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular modem radio:
Select MENU, tap Setting, and select necessary wireless communication settings
RF Exposure Information
This Handheld device meets the government’s requirement for exposure to radio waves.
This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to
radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government. The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/Kg.
Test for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with
the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
Although 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 poser required to reach
the network. In general, the closer user to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the
power output.
For body worn operation, this PDA has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure
guidelines for use with an accessory that contains no metal and the positions of the handset
minimum of 1.5 cm from the body. User of other enhancements may not ensure compliance
with FCC RF exposure guidelines. If user do not use a body-worn accessory and are not
holding the PDA at the ear, position the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when
the device is switched on.

Connecting to Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances from
fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of
security. It can connect several devices, overcoming problems of synchronization.
TopoMate support Bluetooth v2.1+EDR. It is fully backward compatible with 1.2. The
headline feature of 2.1 is securing simple pairing (SSP): this improves the pairing
experience for Bluetooth devices, while increasing the use and strength of security. 2.1
allows various other improvements, including "Extended inquiry response" (EIR),
which provides more information during the inquiry procedure to allow better filtering of
devices before connection and reduces the power consumption in low-power mode.
Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) is for faster data transfer. The nominal rate of EDR is about 3
Mbit/s, although the practical data transfer rate is 2.1 Mbit/s. EDR can provide lower power
consumption through a reduced duty cycle.
To start pairing with other Bluetooth device:
1. Tap Start
select settings and then tap Bluetooth. Select add to search Bluetooth.
2. TopoMate will search all available Bluetooth devices nearby
