Sar testing

Our Process and Typical Length of Testing

Usually the whole process from sending the devices to us and receiving the test report lasts from 6 to 21 business days.

With more than 15 years of experience in SAR testing, we can support you throughout the product development life cycle with our extensive technical expertise to ensure a safe and reliable product.

SAR testing must be done on radio devices that are used closer than 20 cm to the human head or body. Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a measure which explains how much radio frequency energy is absorbed by the body or head.

In addition to SAR testing, Verkotan also provides RF Exposure Evaluations for devices with fixed and/or mobile transmitters. These evaluations are performed on radiating structures that would be intended to be used at distances with more than 20cm from the end user.

We can test the following  technologies & products:

  • All cellular devices, satellite, TETRA, BLE, VHF, UHF and WLAN devices
  • Cellular base station antennas
  • Medical, healthcare, military and consumer products
  • Animal care (e.g. tracking devices)

Test Facilities

Verkotan’s SAR test facilities are fully equipped with the premier supplier of SAR evaluation systems and government-preferred vendor: SPEAG.

We are using DASY5 SAR test systems with RX 90 robotic arm, equipped with probes, tissue simulants, and multiple different phantoms such as twin SAM, ELI and Base Station Phantoms.

DASY5 is capable of evaluating products for SAR to all the global SAR standards for both head and body-worn devices.
