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.
Our testing is carried out according to standards and specifications in the US, Canadian, European, and Japanese markets:
- US – FCC Knowledge Database Publications on RF Exposure
- Canada – RSS-102, SPR-002
- EU – EN 50357, EN 50360, EN 50383, EN 50385, EN 50566, EN 62209-1, EN 62209-2, EN 62232, EN 62311, EN 62479
- International – IEC 62209-1, IEC 62209-2, IEC 62311, IEEE 1528
Our 1.8 meter long Base Station Phantom for adult exposure assessments, which is meant for SAR evaluations is accordance with the Base-Station Antenna Testing standards (e.g. IEC 62232).
Length: 1540 mm
Width: 339 mm
SPEAG's Modular Flat Phantom (MFP)
SPEAG’s modular flat phantoms are used for compliance testing of small wireless devices in body-worn configurations according to IEC 62209-2, etc.
SPEAG's ELI Phantom
Flat phantom for compliance testing of handheld and body-mounted wireless devices in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 6 GHz.

SAR and Market Surveillance Tests
Market surveillance is a process of checking whether products in the market meet the applicable safety requirements and if not, ensure to take the necessary actions to meet those requirements. In the EU there is an own market surveillance authority in each country that ensures effective surveillance of their market. Read more
Now All WLAN Routers Must Demonstrate Compliance to Human RF Exposure
The compliance to human exposure requirements need to be shown now, even though a router would normally be used further than 20 cm away from the human body. Read more
