Bluetooth and Laser

This information applies to the following products: Socket Mobile SocketScan, DuraScan, DuraSled, and XtremeSCan NFC and RFID Products. These products are designed to be compliant with the rules and regulations in locations where they are sold and will be labeled as required. These products are type approved — users are not required to obtain license or authorization before using. Except where other wise noted, the following regulatory compliance statements refer to all of the products listed above.

These products have been certified as conforming to technological standards. Therefore the following actions are punishable by law:

  • Disassembly or modification of these products
  • Removal of identification labels on the back of the products

CAUTION: Changes or modifications to the devices not expressly approved by Socket Mobile can void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

The frequency used by these products is also used by industrial, scientific and medical devices, such as microwave ovens, as well as wireless detectors for motion detectors, such as those requiring licenses used on manufacturing lines or similar radio transmitters (all these wireless devices will be called "other wireless transmitters" below). Most modern electronic equipment, (e.g., in hospitals and cars), is shielded from RF energy. However, certain electronic equipment is not.

  1. Please ensure that all medical devices used in proximity to this device meet appropriate susceptibility specifications for this type of RF energy.
  2. In the unlikely event that there is electronic interference between this system and other wireless transmitters, quickly change the location of operation or stop operating the unit (cease signal transmission).
  3. If other electrical interference or related problems should occur, contact Socket Mobile technical support.

Radio Frequency Interference Requirements

Federal Communication Commission Interference Statement

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
  • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

FCC Caution: To assure continued compliance, any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate this equipment. (Example - use only shielded interface cables when connecting to computer or peripheral devices).

FCC Radiation Exposure Statement

This equipment complies with FCC RF radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 20 centimeters between the radiator and your body. This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

  1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
  2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation

Bluetooth Products: In order to comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, the following antenna installation and device operating configurations must be satisfied: (1) Users are not permitted to make changes or modify the system in any way, and (2) connecting external antennas to the product is prohibited. This device and its antenna must not be co-located or operated with any other antenna or transmitter.

This equipment is also ETS 300 328-2, ETS EN301 489-1 and ETS EN301 489-17 compliant. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment.

Antenna Co-location Instructions

The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. End-users and installers must be provided with installation instructions and transmitter operating conditions for satisfying RF exposure compliance.

Radio Frequency Interference Requirements – Canada

This device complies with Industry Canada license exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes: (1) l'appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et (2) l'utilisateur de l'appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d'en compromettre le fonctionnement.

Battery Warning / Recycling

  • Your device contains a rechargeable battery. Never throw the battery into a fire, as that could cause the battery to explode.
  • Never short-circuit the battery by bringing the terminals in contact with another metal object. This could cause personal injury or a fire, and could also damage the battery.
  • Never dispose of used battery with other ordinary solid wastes. Batteries contain toxic substances.
  • Dispose of used battery in accordance with the prevailing community regulations that apply to the disposal of batteries. Cover the metal terminals with insulating tape. (This is to prevent accidental short-circuiting).
  • Never expose the battery to any liquid.
  • Always keep the battery out of reach of infants or small children.
  • Never shock the battery by dropping it or throwing it.
  • Dispose of a spent or damaged battery promptly.
