Specific absorption rate data
THIS BLACKBERRY SMART CARD READER MEETS
GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES.
The BlackBerry® Smart Card Reader is a radio transmitter
and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy set by the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) of the U.S. Government, Industry Canada of the
Canadian Government (IC), and recommended by The
Council of the European Union. 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
24
substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of
all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for the BlackBerry Smart Card
Reader employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the
FCC/IC is 1.6W/kg*. The SAR limit recommended by The
Council of the European Union is 2.0W/kg**.
Tests for SAR are exempted due to the low transmit power
of the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader. As per FCC 2003 TCB
Training, no SAR evaluation is needed if the transmit power
of a transceiver is below the low threshold of 60 / f (GHz)
mW.
___________________________________
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile
devices used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged
over 1 gram of tissue for the body or head (4.0 W/kg
averaged over 10 grams of tissue for the extremities - hands,
wrists, ankles and feet). The standard incorporates a
25
substantial margin of safety to give additional protection
for the public and to account for any variations in
measurements.
** In Europe, the SAR limit for mobile devices used by the
public is 2.0 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of
tissue for the body or head (4.0 W/kg averaged over 10
grams of tissue for the extremities - hands, wrists, ankles
and feet). The standard incorporates a substantial margin
of safety to give additional protection for the public and to
account for any variations in measurements.
The long-term characteristics or the possible physiological
effects of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic fields have not
been evaluated by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL).
