RF Energy Exposure Awareness and Control Information and
Operational Instructions for Occupational Use
NOTICE: This radio is intended for use in occupational/controlled conditions where users have full
knowledge of their exposure and can exercise control over their exposure to meet the
occupational limits in FCC and International standards. This radio device is NOT
authorized for general population consumer use.
This two-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide
communications between two or more users over a distance. It uses radio frequency (RF) energy or radio
waves to send and receive calls. RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy. Other forms include,
but are not limited to, sunlight and x-rays. RF energy, however, should not be confused with these other
forms of electromagnetic energy, which when used improperly, can cause biological damage. Very high
levels of x-rays, for example, can damage tissues and genetic material.
Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and industry work with organizations to develop
standards for safe exposure to RF energy. These standards provide recommended levels of RF exposure
for both workers and the general public. These recommended RF exposure levels include substantial
margins of protection.
All Motorola Solutions two-way radios are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet
government-established RF exposure levels. In addition, manufacturers also recommend specific
operating instructions to users of two-way radios. These instructions are important because they inform
users about RF energy exposure and provide simple procedures on how to control it.
