RSS-102 Issue5 2.5.1 Exemption Limits for Routine Evaluation — SAR Evaluation
SAR evaluation is required if the separation distance between the user and/or bystander and the antenna and/or radiating element of the device is less than or equal to 20 cm, except when the de- vice operates at or below the applicable output power level (adjusted for tune-up tolerance) for the specified separation distance defined.
SAR test reduction procedure for module or device with combined Bluetooth and RLAN tech- nology operating in the 2402MHz to 2483.5MHz frequency band.
Currently, more and more devices and modules incorporate a combination of Bluetooth and RLAN
technology (e.g. IEEE802.11b, g and/or n) that are co-located. Bluetooth and RLAN operating at 2.4
GHz often use the same power amplifier and antenna system; however one operating at lower pow- er than the other. Industry Canada has developed a test reduction procedure in order to reduce the number of SAR measurements that would normally be required for radio apparatus employing both these technologies.
