About SAR of Xperia Z2 Tablet SO-05F

Radio Wave Exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Information
United States


The tablets PC have been designed to comply with applicable safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. Your wireless tablet PC is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed to not exceed the limits* of exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by governmental authorities. These limits establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by international scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies.

The standards include a safety margin designed to assure the safety of all individuals, regardless of age and health. The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).

Tests for SAR are conducted using standardized methods with the tablet PC transmitting at its highest certified power level in all used frequency bands. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various tablet PC models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for exposure to radio waves. For more information on SAR, please refer to the important information chapter in the User Guide.

The highest SAR value as reported to the authorities for this tablet PC model when tested for use against the body is 1.01 W/kg*. The tablet PC has been tested when positioned of 0 mm from the body without any metal parts in the vicinity of the tablet PC or when properly used with an appropriate Sony. For devices which include "WiFi hotspot" functionality, SAR measurements for the device operating in WiFi hotspot mode were taken using a separation distance of 0 mm.

** Before a tablet PC model is available for sale to the public in the US, it must be tested and certified by the Federal Communications Commission (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 (i.e., by the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model. The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this tablet PC model with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various tablet PCs, all mobile tablet PCs granted an FCC equipment authorization meet the government requirement for safe exposure. SAR information on this tablet PC model is on file at the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of https://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on FCCID PY7TM-0041. Additional information on SAR can be found on the Mobile Manufacturers Forum EMF website at http://www.emfexplained.info/.

* In the United States, the SAR limit for mobile tablet PCs used by the public is 1.6 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements.
