YOUR GSM APPLICATION BASED ON WISMO Quik Q24x6 Series
PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION CAREFULLY
6.3.1 RF safety
Your GSM terminal
is based on the GSM standard for cellular technology. The
GSM standard is spread all over the world. It covers Europe, Asia and some
parts of America and Africa. This is the most used telecommunication
Your GSM terminal is actually a low power radio transmitter and receiver. It
sends out and receives radio frequency energy. When you use your GSM
application, the cellular system which handles your calls controls both the
radio frequency and the power level of your cellular modem.
Exposure to RF energy
There has been some public concern about possible health effects of using
GSM terminals. Although research on health effects from RF energy has
focused on the current RF technology for many years, scientists have begun
research regarding newer radio technologies, such as GSM. After existing
research had been reviewed, and after compliance to all applicable safety
standards had been tested, it has been concluded that the product was fitted
If you are concerned about exposure to RF energy there are things you can do
to minimize exposure. Obviously, limiting the duration of your calls will reduce
your exposure to RF energy. In addition, you can reduce RF exposure by
operating your cellular terminal efficiently by following the below guidelines.
Efficient terminal operation
For your GSM terminal to operate at the lowest power level, consistent with
satisfactory call quality :
If your terminal has an extendible antenna, extend it fully. Some models allow
you to place a call with the antenna retracted. However your GSM terminal
operates more efficiently with the antenna fully extended.
Do not hold the antenna when the terminal is « IN USE ». Holding the antenna
affects call quality and may cause the modem to operate at a higher power
level than needed.
