About SAR of GALAXY Tab 10.1 LTE SC-01D

European RF Exposure Information


Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg. As mobile phone offer a range of functions, they can be used in other positions, such as on the body as described in this user guide*. In this case, the highest tested SAR value is 1.14 W/kg.

As SAR is measured utilizing the devices highest transmitting power the actual SAR of this device while operating is typically below that indicated above. This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the device to ensure it only uses the minimum level required to reach the network.

The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific information does not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They note that if you want to reduce your exposure then you can do so by limiting the length of calls or using a 'handsfree' device to keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.

* When carrying the product or using it while worn on the body maintain a distance of 5 mm from the body to ensure compliance with RF exposure requirements.
