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.

regulation, all WiFi products that are marketed in US must be fixed to US-operated channels only.
RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This device has been tested and meets applicable limits for Radio Frequency (RF) exposure.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) refers to the rate at which the body absorbs RF energy. SAR limits
are 1.6 Watts per kilogram (over a volume containing a mass of 1 gram of tissue) in countries that
follow the United States FCC limit and 2.0 W/kg (averaged over 10 grams of tissue) in countries
that follow the Council of the European Union limit. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands.
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free accessory or other similar option to keep this
device away from your head and body. Carry this device at least 10 mm away from your body to
ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-tested levels. Choose the belt clips, holsters,
or other similar body-worn accessories which do not contain metallic components to support
operation in this manner. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device,
including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or
certified, and use such accessories should be avoided.
89
The highest FCC SAR values for the device are as follows:
• 1.19 W/Kg @1g(Head)
• 0.96 W/Kg @1g(Body)
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this device with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this device is
