Snowfox 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. The SAR limit is 1.6 watts per kilogram in countries that set the limit averaged over 1 gram of tissue and 2.0 watts per kilogram in countries that set the limit averaged over 10 grams of tissue. During testing, Snowfox radios are set to their highest transmission levels and placed in positions that simulate use in front of face with 10mm separation, and body-worn configuration with 5mm separation in call and tracking modes.
Carry Snowfox at least 5 mm away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-tested levels. 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.
Although this device has been tested to determine SAR in each band of operation, not all bands are available in all areas. Bands are dependent on your service provider’s wireless and roaming networks.
The highest SAR values are as follows:
2.0 W/kg (over 10 g) SAR Limit
In front of face: 0.86
Body-worn (Call Mode): 1.21
Body-worn (Tracking Mode): 1.18
1.6 W/kg (over 1 g) SAR Limit
In front of face: 1.24
Body-worn (Call Mode): 1.59
Body-worn (Tracking Mode): 1.24
