Safety Instructions

When using your telephone equipment, please follow these basic safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury:

1.Do not use this product near water, such as a bathtub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool.

2.Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless-type)during an electrical storm. There is a remote risk of shock from lightning.

3.Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.

4.Use only the power cord, power supply, and/or batteries indicated in the manual. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local codes for special disposal instructions.

FCC-RequiredInformation

 

 

FCC-RequiredInformation

Federal Communications Commission Radio Frequency Interference Statement

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio frequencies. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

Shielded cables must be used with this unit to ensure compliance with Class A FCC limits.

Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Radio Frequency Interface Statement

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for an intentional radiator, pursuant to Part 15, Subpart C of the FCC Rules. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy. If not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, it may cause interference to radio communications.

The limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential situation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment on and off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna of the affected radio or television.

Increase the separation between the equipment and the affected receiver.

Connect the equipment and the affected receiver to power outlets on separate circuits.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by ADTRAN could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

FCC Output Power Restrictions

The FCC does not require licensing to implement this device. License-freeoperation in the industrial, scientific, and medical band is documented in FCC Rules Part 15.247. It is the responsibility of the individuals designing and implementing the radio system to ensure compliance with any pertinent FCC Rules and Regulations.This device must be professionally installed.

The FCC specifies the maximum transmitter power used for antennae of a given gain. FCC Rules Part 15, Subpart 247 allow for a maximum power of 1 watt (30 dBm) into antennae of a gain less than or equal to 6 dBi. At 2.4 GHz (TRACER 6410), the 1-wattmaximum transmitter power must be reduced by 1 dB for every 3 dB of antenna gain over 6 dBi. This rule is shown inTable 5 on page 20. For the 5.8 GHz band (TRACER 6420), the maximum output power is 1 watt (30 dBm) regardless of the gain of the attached antenna. Since the TRACER 6420 L1 and L2 maximum transmit power is 100 milliwatts and

250 milliwatts, respectively, there is no reduction in transmitter output power required.

Exposure to Radio Frequency Fields

The TRACER 6410 is designed to operate at 2.4 GHz with 500 mW maximum transmit power, the TRACER 6420L1 is designed to operate at 5.8 GHz with 100 mW maximum transmit power, and the TRACER 6420L2 is designed to operate at 5.8 GHz with 250 mW maximum transmit power.

This level of RF energy is below the Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) levels specified in FCC OET 65:97-01.The installation of high gain antenna equipment in the system configuration may create the opportunity for exposure to levels higher than recommended for the general population at a distance less than 15 feet (4.6 meters) from the center of the antenna.The following precautions must be taken during installation of this equipment:

Verify the antenna installation meets all regulations specified in the National Electric Code (NEC) Article 810 with particular attention to clearances from power and lighting conductors, mounting, grounding, and antenna discharge unit.

The installed antenna must not be located in a manner that allows exposure of the general population to the direct beam path of the antenna at a distance less than 15 feet (4.6 meters). Installation on towers, masts, or rooftops not accessible to the general population is recommended; or

Mount the antenna in a manner that prevents any personnel from entering the area within 15 feet (4.6 meters) from the front of the antenna.

It is recommended that the installer place radio frequency hazard warnings signs on the barrier that prevents access to the antenna.

Prior to installing the antenna to the TRACER output, make sure the power is adjusted to the settings specified in Section 2 of this manual.

During antenna installation, be sure that power to the TRACER equipment is turned off in order to prevent the presence of microwave energy on the coaxial connector.

During installation and alignment of the antenna, do not stand in front of the antenna assembly.

During installation and alignment of the antenna, do not handle or touch the front of the antenna.

Per Industry Canada RSS210: “The installer of this radio equipment must ensure that the antenna is located or pointed such that it does not emit RF field in excess of Health Canada limits for the general population; consult Safety Code 6, obtainable from Health Canada’s website at www.hc-sc.gc.ca/rpb.Thesesimple precautions must be taken to prevent general population and installation personnel from exposure to RF energy in excess of specified MPE levels.
