SAR Testing Capabilities
- CE, FCC & ISED SAR Testing
- Pre-Compliance Testing
- Head, Body, Extremity Capability
- Whole-Body SAR Measurement
- Test Frequencies between 30-6000MHz
- In Non-Signaling and Signaling Modes
- Dielectric Parameter Validation
We can test the following technologies & products
- 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G (FR1) 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)
We are also able to test limb SAR. From 1st July 2020, France requires limb SAR to be tested, in addition to the head and body SAR. Distributors must display SAR values provided by the manufactures of each appliance put on sale from 1st July 2020 at the point of sale or distribution.
Consumer protection has driven an increase in SAR testing and regulations. We at Verkotan are aware of these updated regulations.
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.
Major axis: 600 mm
Minor axis: 400 mm
SPEAG's DASY5 SAR Test System
We are using DAS5 SAR test systems located in an RF shielded rooms.
SPEAG's TWIN SAM Phantom
Compliance testing of wireless devices in hand-held configurations according to IEC 62209-1, IEEE 1528, etc.
Length: 1000 mm
Width: 500 mm
Height: adjustable feet
