The following FCC statements apply only to the version of this model manufactured for sale in the
USA. Other versions may not comply with FCC technical regulations.
FCC Information (USA)
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
NOTE: The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by unauthorized
modifications to this equipment. Such modifications could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.
Only peripherals (computer input/output devices, terminals, printers, etc.) that comply with FCC
Class B limits may be attached to this computer product. Operation with noncompliant peripherals
is likely to result in interference to radio and television reception.
All cables used to connect peripherals must be shielded and grounded. Operation with cables
connected to peripherals that are not shielded and grounded may result in interference to radio
and television reception.
FCC/IC Radio Frequency Exposure
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using
low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are
absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the
microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by
heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found any biological
effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings
have not been confirmed by additional research.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set
forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines
in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules.
This device and its antenna(s) must not be co-located or operating with any other antenna or
transmitter except Grant condition.
Models with the BLUETOOTH functionality contain a Wireless transmitter which is co-located and
operating simultaneously with a 0.004W BLUETOOTH output of Wireless LAN BLUETOOTH combo
module FCC ID: PD96235ANH.
