About SAR of M2501
Radio Frequency (RF)Signals
THIS PRODUCT MEETS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your PC Card contains a radio transmitter and receiver. Your PC Card 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 PC Cards employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the PC Card transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the PC Card while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the product is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as 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 of the PC Card.
Before a PC Card 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 U.S. government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR value for this product as reported to the FCC when tested for use in normal operating conditions inside a laptop, with the laptop against the body, is 0.55W/kg.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this product with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR information on this product is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Gant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/ after searching on FCC ID IHDT6FL1.
In the United States, the SAR limit for wireless mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 Watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. SAR values may vary depending upon national reporting requirements and the network band.
