GH5200 is a tracking terminal with GNSS and GSM connectivity, which is able to collect device coordinates and transfer them via GSM network to a server. This device is perfectly suitable for applications, which require the location acquirement of remote objects.

IC Notice

This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.

IC: 27304-GH5200
IC Radiation Exposure Statement

This EUT is in compliance with SAR for general population/uncontrolled exposure limits in IC RSS-102 and had been tested in accordance with the measurement methods and procedures specified in IEEE 1528 and IEC 62209. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance of 0 cm between the radiator and your body. This device and its antenna(s) must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

Radio frequency (RF) energy

This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the United States and Industry Canada.
During SAR testing, this device is set to transmit at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that simulate RF exposure in usage against the head with no separation, and near the body with the separation of 0 mm. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employing a unit of measurement is known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg and 1.6 W/kg by Industry Canada.
This device is in compliance with SAR for general population /uncontrolled exposure limits in ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1992 and Canada RSS 102 and had been tested in accordance with the measurement methods and procedures specified in IEEE1528 and Canada RSS 102. This device has been tested and meets the FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines when tested with the device directly contacted to the body.
For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage near the body is 1.179 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various devices and at various positions, they all meet the government requirement.
SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation distance of 0 mm between the unit and the human body. Carry this device at least 0 mm away from your body to ensure RF exposure level compliant or lower to the reported level. To support body-worn operation, choose the belt clips or holsters that do not contain metallic components to maintain a separation of 0 mm between this device and your body.
RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains metal, was not tested and certified, and using such body-worn accessory should be avoided.
