Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
This model device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio
waves. Your wireless device 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 of the
U.S. Government. 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
substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6
W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions specified by
the FCC with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although SAR is determined at the highest certified power level,
the actual SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the maximum
value. Because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels to use
only the power required to reach the network, in general, the closer you are to a
wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output. Before a device model
is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it
does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted requirement for
safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear
and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR values are:
Head: 0.75 W/kg
Body (Body-worn/Hotspot): 1.19 W/kg
(Body measurements differ among device models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements).
While there may be differences between SAR levels of various devices and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement for safe exposure.
