Verkotan Now Provides SAR Testing With a New Phantom

SAR testing with a new small box shaped base-station antenna phantom

Verkotan now has a novelty in the SAR laboratory – new SAR phantom. From now on we provide SAR testing with a new small box shaped base-station antenna phantom.

Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate of radio frequency energy absorption by the body from the source being measured. SAR measurements are recommended to comply primarily for the safety of humans and animals. When users are in the reactive near-field of the antenna it is essential to determine the safest distance between the device and the user. The key consideration here is in obtaining the most accurate results.

Small box-shaped phantom

A new small box-shaped phantom 0.96 × 0.233 ×0.15 we are now working with, allows easy local SAR testing of long whip antennas, large IoT devices and indoor base station antennas.

The small box-shaped phantom is also the preferred alternative for the whole-body SAR testing when there is a possibility of exposure to anyone including children. Typically, such types of box-shaped phantoms are used for the indoor base stations antennas, which can be arbitrarily arranged in the houses, offices and other places.

Another distinctive feature is that the whole-body SAR measurements may also be used to accurately evaluate access zones for Military Workplaces as specified by IEEE Std C95.1-2345™-2014. The access zones are specified based on exposure levels. The mainly used compliance assessment methods are electric and magnetic field measurements or calculations.  Because the requirements for field levels are conservatively derived from the requirements for SAR, it is possible to exceed the field level requirements while still complying with the SAR requirements.

Here at Verkotan with more than 15 years of experiences in SAR testing, we can support you throughout the product development life cycle with our extensive expertise to ensure a safe and reliable product. Verkotan is happy to provide more detailed information and make a proposal, how we, at Verkotan can verify your devices in the global environment.
