APPENDIX D: Information on Exposure to Radio Waves and the SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
The design of this tablet complies with the current regulations governing exposure
to radio waves. These regulations are based on scientific guidelines that include
safety margins designed to ensure the safety of everyone, regardless of age or state
of health.
The guidelines on exposure to radio waves use a unit of measurement known as
the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). SAR tests are carried out using standardised
methods, with the tablet transmitting at the highest certified level of power on all
the frequency bands it uses.
The maximum SAR levels recommended by the ICNIRP (International Commission
on Non Ionizing Radiation Protection) is 2 W/kg, measured on 10 g of tissue.
The highest SAR levels recorded for this tablet are as follows:
When used in direct contact with the body
Aquaris E10
Aquaris E10 3G
0.490 W/Kg (10 g)
0.359 W/Kg (10 g)
This device complies with the guidelines on exposure to radio frequency both when
it is used in the normal position next to the ear and when it is positioned at least 1.5
cm from the body. In order to send data files or messages, this device requires an
adequate network connection. On certain occasions, the transmission of data files
or messages may be delayed until an adequate connection becomes available. Until
the transmission has been completed, make sure you follow the instructions on the
separation distance mentioned above.
