Regulatory Information

FCC Declaration of Conformity
These devices comply with FCC Rules Part 15. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
These devices may not cause harmful interference.
These devices must accept any interference received, including interference that may causeundesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy. If this equipment is not installed and used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, it may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The use of shielded cables for connection of the monitor to the graphics card is required to assure compliance with FCC regulations. Modifications to these devices not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate this equipment.

Detachable Antenna Information
FCC Part 15, Subpart C, Section 15.203 Antenna requirement
USR 5416 users: An intentional radiator shall be designed to ensure that no antenna other than that furnished by the responsible party shall be used with the device. The use of a permanently attached antenna or of an antenna that uses a unique coupling to the intentional radiator shall be considered sufficient to comply with the provisions of this section. The manufacturer may design the unit so that a broken antenna can be replaced by the user, but the use of a standard antenna jack or electrical connector is prohibited.

FCC Radiation Exposure Statement
This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20 cm between the radiator and your body.

Industry Canada Statement
The term "IC" before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada Technical specifications were met. This equipment complies with the Industry Canada Spectrum Management and Telecommunications policy, RSS-210 standard, Low Power License-Exempt Radio Communication Devices.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

  1. This device may cause interference.
  2. This device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotopically radiated power(EIRP) is not more than required for successful communication. This device has been designed to operate with an antenna having a maximum gain of 2dB. Antenna having a higher gain is strictly prohibited per regulations of Industry Canada. The required antenna impedance is 50 ohms.

UL Listing/CUL Listing

For external devices:
This information technology equipment is UL-Listed and CUL Listed for the uses described in the users guide.

For internal devices:
This information technology is UL-Listed and CUL-Listed for use with UL-Listed personal computers that have a users guide detailing user installation of card accessories.

Regarding IEEE 802.11g we currently have the following information about restrictions in the R&TTE countries:

Country frequency band output power
France 2454-2483.5 MHz 10 mW EIRP outdoor

This device complies with the European requirements governing exposure to electromagnetic radiation. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20 cm between the radiator and your body. This wireless device is a transmitter/receiver and has been designed and manufactured to comply with the exposure limits recommended by the Council of the European Union and the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP, 1999) for the entire population. The exposure standard for portable equipment uses the "Specific Absorption Rate" as unit of measure. The maximum SAR value of this wireless device measured in the conformity test is 1.08 W/kg.

EU Detachable Antenna Information
This USRobotics wireless device has been designed to operate with the antenna included in this package only. Together this device and antenna combination has been tested and approved by a European Agency conforming with the European R&TTE directive 1999/5/EC to meet the radiated power level requirement of 100mW e.i.r.p. Replacement of this antenna must only done with an authorized USRobotics component that has been designed and tested with the unit to the requirements of directive 1999/5/EC. Please refer to the USRobotics web site to get product antenna ordering information.
