SAR Testing

SAR testing for CE mark and FCC certification

 

Measurable Frequencies from 30MHz to 6GHz

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

Our SAR test systems have the following capabilities:
  • Capability of testing SAR compliance of cellular, Wi-Fi, TETRA, Satellite, UHF and VHF devices 
  • Head and body capability
  • Whole body capability
  • Measurable frequency range: 30-6000MHz
  • SAR testing in non-signaling and signaling modes
  • Dielectric parameter validation
  • SAR testing against CE and FCC requirements
Our SAR test system consists of:
  • 3 x SAR test robots based on DASY5 test systems located in RF shielded rooms

  • 1 x Base Station Phantom for whole body SAR measurements 

  • 3 x pieces of twin SAM phantoms for head and body SAR measurements

  • 3 x Eli (oval shaped) phantoms (ELI is fully compatible with the IEC 62209-2 standard and all known tissue simulating liquids)

What is SAR Testing?

SAR testing measures the electromagnetic energy absorbed by a body using a wireless device. SAR testing is intended to verify that a device does not exceed a country’s established RF exposure limits. Verkotan can help you to determine whether your product meets your target market’s requirements.
Verkotan’s laboratories are capable of performing both OTA and SAR measurements in the same location. Our customers can ensure that the RF exposure stays in required limits but the device’s performance has not decreased too much.
