SAR testing benefits

SAR testing is important because it measures the amount of RF energy absorbed by biological tissue when using a wireless device over a period of time. This testing allows you to demonstrate that your product complies with international established RF exposure SAR limits. We can test to all current SAR standards at every stage of your product development cycle, confirming compliance to the legal and market human RF exposure requirements.

Even more so, we have the resources to provide accreditation worldwide. We perform SAR testing to numerous global standards, including CE, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), IC, Japan and the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA).
