RF Energy Exposure Awareness,
Control Information and Operational
Instructions for Occupational Use
NOTICE: This radio is intended for use in
occupational/controlled conditions where users
have full knowledge of their exposure and can
exercise control over their exposure to meet the
occupational limits in FCC and International
standards. This radio device is NOT authorized for
general population consumer use.

Product Safety and RF
Energy Exposure Booklet
for Portable Two-Way
Radios
This two-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the
radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide
communications between two or more users over a
distance. It uses radio frequency (RF) energy or radio
waves to send and receive calls.
RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy.
Other forms include, but are not limited to, sunlight and
x-rays. RF energy, however, should not be confused
with these other forms of electromagnetic energy,
which when used improperly, can cause biological
damage. Very high levels of x-rays, for example, can
damage tissues and genetic material.
Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and
industry work with organizations to develop standards
for safe exposure to RF energy. These standards
provide recommended levels of RF exposure for both
workers and the general public. These recommended
RF exposure levels include substantial margins of
protection.
3
Product Safety
All Vertex Standard two-way radios are designed,
manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet
government- established RF exposure levels. In
addition, manufacturers also recommend specific
operating instructions to users of two-way radios.
These instructions are important because they inform
users about RF energy exposure and provide simple
procedures on how to control it.
Please refer to the following websites for more
information on what RF energy exposure is and how to
control your exposure to assure compliance with
established RF exposure limits:
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html

ndex.html
Federal Communication Commission
(FCC) Regulations
The FCC rules require manufacturers to comply with
the FCC RF energy exposure limits for portable
two-way radios before they can be marketed in the U.S.
When two-way radios are used as a consequence of
employment, the FCC requires users to be fully aware
of and able to control their exposure to meet
occupational requirements. Exposure awareness can
be facilitated by the use of a product label directing
users to specific user awareness information. Your
Vertex Standard two-way radio has a RF Exposure
Product Label. Also, your Vertex Standard user manual
or separate safety booklet includes information and
4
operating instructions required to control your RF
exposure and to satisfy compliance requirements.
Compliance with RF Exposure Standards
Your Vertex Standard two-way radio is designed and
tested to comply with a number of national and
International standards and guidelines (listed below)
for human exposure to radio frequency
electromagnetic energy. This radio complies with the
IEEE (FCC) and ICNIRP exposure limits for
occupational/controlled RF exposure
environments at operating duty factors of up to
50% talk–50% listen and is authorized by the FCC
for occupational use only.
In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with
these exposure guidelines, your radio generates
measurable RF energy only while it is transmitting
(during talking), not when it is receiving (listening)
or in standby mode.
NOTE: The approved batteries, supplied with this radio,
are rated for a 5–5–90 duty factor (5% talk–5%
listen–90% standby) even though this radio complies
with FCC occupational exposure limits and may
operate at duty factors of up to 50% talk
Your Vertex Standard two-way radio complies with
the following RF energy exposure standards and
guidelines:

RF Exposure Compliance and Control
Guidelines and Operating Instructions
To control your exposure and ensure compliance with
the occupational/controlled environment exposure
limits, always adhere to the following procedures.
Guidelines:
z
Do not remove the RF Exposure Label from the
z
Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50%
of the time. To transmit (talk), push the Push-To-Talk
(PTT) button. To receive calls, release the PTT
button. Transmitting 50% of the time, or less, is
important because this radio generates measurable
RF energy exposure when transmitting (in terms of
measuring for standards compliance).
z
Hold the radio in a vertical position in
front of the face with the microphone
(and other parts of the radio including
the antenna) at least 2.5 centimeters
(one inch) away from the nose or lips.
Antenna should be kept away from the eye.
Keeping the radio at a proper distance is important
since RF exposures decrease with increasing
distance from the antenna.
z
When worn on the body, always place the radio in a
Vertex Standard approved clip, The use of nonVertex Standard approved accessories may result
in exposure levels, which exceed the FCC
occupational/controlled environment RF exposure
limits.
