The wireless adapter and your health

The wireless adapter, like other radio devices, emits radio frequency 
electromagnetic energy. The level of energy emitted by the wireless 
adapter, however, is less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by 
other wireless devices such as mobile phones. The wireless adapter 
operates within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety 
standards and recommendations. These standards and 
recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community 
and result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists 
who continually review and interpret the extensive research literature. 
In some situations or environments, the use of the wireless adapter 
may be restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible 
representatives of the applicable organization. Examples of such 
situations may include:
• Using the wireless adapter on board airplanes, or
• Using the wireless adapter in any other environment where the risk 

of interference with other devices or services is perceived or 
identified as being harmful.

If you are uncertain of the policy that applies to the use of wireless 
adapters in a specific organization or environment (an airport, for 
example), you are encouraged to ask for authorization to use the 
adapter before you turn it on.

USA — FCC and FAA

The FCC with its action in ET Docket 96-8 has adopted a safety 
standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic 
energy emitted by FCC certified equipment. The wireless adapter 
meets the Human Exposure limits found in OET Bulletin 65, 

Warning

FCC and FAA regulations may prohibit airborne operation of radio-
frequency wireless devices (wireless adapters) because their signals 
could interfere with critical aircraft instruments. Ask the cabin crew 
before turning on your device’s wireless adapter whilst on board.
