Appendix C - Safety Statement

Federal Communications Commission

This device complies with FCC Rules Part 15. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

  • This device may not cause harmful interference

  • This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (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 frequencyi 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 EVEN IF CORRECTLY INSTALLED. 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.

WARNING! The use of a shielded-type power cord is required in order to meet FCC emission limits and to prevent interference to the nearby radio and television reception. It is essential that only the supplied power cord be used. Use only shielded cables to connect I/O devices to this equipment. You are cautioned that changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void your authority to operate the equipment.

MPE Statement: Your device contains a low power transmitter. When device is transmitted it sends out Radio Frequency (RF) signal.

This device is restricted to INDOOR USE due to its operation in the 5.15 to 5.25GHz frequency range. FCC requires this product to be used indoors for the frequency range 5.15 to 5.25GHz to reduce the potential for harmful interference to co-channel of the Mobile Satellite Systems. High power radars are allocated as primary user of the 5.25 to 5.35GHz and 5.65 to 5.85GHz bands. These radar stations can cause interference with and / or damage this device.

FCC RF Exposure Guidelines

This Wireless LANi radio device has been evaluated under FCC Bulletin OET 65C and found compliant to the requirements as set forth in CFR 47 Sections 2.1091, 2.1093, and 15.247(b)(4) addressing RF Exposure from radio frequency devices. The radiation output power of this Wireless LAN device is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, this device shall be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation - as a mobile or portable device but use in a body-worn way is strictly prohibit. When using this device, a certain separation distance between antenna and nearby persons has to be kept to ensure RF exposure compliance. In order to comply with the RF exposure limits established in the ANSI C95.1 standards, Access Pointi equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance [20cm] between the radiator and your body. Use only with supplied antenna. Unauthorized antenna, modification, or attachments could damage the transmitter and may violate FCC regulations.

CAUTION: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved in this manual could void your authorization to use this device.

This device has been tested for compliance with FCC RF Exposure (SAR) limits in typical portable configurations. In order to comply with SAR limits established in the ANSI C95.1 standards, it is recommended when using a WLANi Card adapteri that the integrated antenna is positioned more than [2.5cm] from your body or nearby persons during extended periods of operation. If the antenna is positioned less than [2.5cm] from the user, it is recommended that the user limit the exposure time.

Operation Channel for Different Domains

N. America 2.412-2.462 GHz Ch01 through CH11

Japan 2.412-2.484 GHz Ch01 through Ch14

Europe ETSI 2.412-2.472 GHz Ch01 through Ch13

France 2.457-2.472 GHz Ch10 through Ch13

France Restricted Frequency Band

Some areas of France have a restricted frequency band. The worst case maximum authorized power indoors is:

  • 10mW for the entire 2.4 GHz band (2400 MHz-2483.5 MHz)

  • 100mW for frequencies between 2446.5 MHz and 2483.5 MHz

NOTE: Channels 10 through 13 inclusive operate in the band 2446.6 MHz to 2483.5 MHz.

There are few possibilities for outdoor use: On private property or on the private property of public persons, use is subject to a preliminary authorization procedure by the Ministry of Defense, with maximum authorized power of 100mW in the 2446.5-2483.5 MHz band. Use outdoors on public property is not permitted.

In the departments listed below, for the entire 2.4 GHz band:

  • Maximum authorized power indoors is 100mW

  • Maximum authorized power outdoors is 10mW

  • Departments in which the use of the 2400-2483.5 MHz band is permitted with an EIRP of less than 100mW indoors and less than 10mW outdoors:
