SAR Testing and RF Exposure Evaluations
With more than 15 years of experience in SAR testing, we support you throughout the product development life cycle with our extensive technical expertise to ensure a safe and reliable product.
With our great experience with the CE, FCC, and ISED certification process, we help you to manage your wireless device’s conformity process.
Tissue Simulating Liquids
Verkotan provides standardized and customized tissue simulants. The liquids can be used to study how electromagnetic radiation propagates through tissue. We provide tissue simulating liquids for your needs worldwide.
Electromagnetic Field Measurements
Verkotan provides Electromagnetic Field Measurements (EMF) for RF exposure evaluations.
When in use, electrical equipment emits electromagnetic fields. There are different regional limits set by regulatory bodies for exposure to EMF. EMF testing is used to assess the levels of exposure and compare them to reference levels. Compliance with EMF requirements is obligatory in most markets including Europe, the US and Canada.

When to show RF exposure compliance with calculations
RF exposure compliance of electronic and electrical equipment with the basic restrictions, or with the reference levels, is usually determined by testing. However, if the product meets certain requirements, the RF exposure compliance can be shown by calculations without any testing. Continue reading for more information about RF exposure calculations.
