Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) lab in TEC

The TEC SAR Laboratory has been commissioned for independent audit of SAR value of mobile handsets for compliance to limits prescribed by DOT. It is mandatory for Manufacturers and the importers of mobile handsets provide self‐declaration of SAR value. TEC has been mandated to conduct the random audit on self‐certified mobile handsets.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a measure to know the levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields from mobile handsets. It is the rate at which human body absorbs electromagnetic power radiated from Mobile Terminals and Wireless Devices

The SAR Laboratory of TEC is capable of making SAR measurement for CDMA, GSM 2G and 3G mobile handsets in the frequency band of 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz in terms of IEEE standard based Test Procedure as per on International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) standard 62209-1 (2005) .
