This paper addresses the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of EPOS DECT and Bluetooth® contact center and office headsets.
First, radiation and the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) are explained in detail. Second, SAR measurements of EPOS’ Bluetooth® and DECT headsets are presented. The results show that all SAR-levels of EPOS headsets are well below the recommended limits of 2 W/kg (EU limit) and 1.6 W/kg (US limit) and therefore it cannot be confirmed that they will negatively impact health.
Headsets and Radiation
All EPOS wireless headsets comply with the international standards of SAR to protect consumers against excess radiation. All values were verified by an independent test laboratory. Headset measurements are based on internationally acknowledged standardized methods and are taken at maximum radio output levels (long range & wideband mode). The actual SAR-levels of EPOS headsets are well below the recommended limits of 2 W/kg (EU limit) and 1.6 W/kg (US limit). All EPOS wireless headsets use Bluetooth® or DECT radio technology.
