Antenna Information
The radio transmitters 7680A-AMN41012 (HD Transmitter), 7680A-AMN42012 (HD Receiver), and 4492A-2832 (BT Module) have been approved by Industry Canada to operate with the antenna types listed below with the maximum permissible gain indicated. Antenna types not included in this list, having a gain greater than the maximum gain indicated for that type, are strictly prohibited for use with this device. Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.

Informations sur l'antenne
Les présent émetteur radios 7680A-AMN41012 (HD Transmitter), 7680A-AMN42012 (HD Receiver), and 4492A-2832 (BT Module) ont été approuvé par Industrie Canada pour fonctionner avec les types d'antenne énumérés ci-dessous et ayant un gain admissible maximal et l'impédance requise pour chaque type d'antenne. Les types d'antenne non inclus dans cette liste, ou dont le gain est supérieur au gain maximal indiqué, sont strictement interdits pour l'exploitation de l'émetteur. Conformément à la réglementation d'Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une antenne d'un type et d'un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l'émetteur par Industrie Canada. Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l'intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le type d'antenne et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l'intensité nécessaire à l'établissement d'une communication satisfaisante.

UNINTENTIONAL RADIO INTERFERENCE

FCC COMPLIANCE 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 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 or more of the following measures:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and the 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 or television technician for help


This equipment 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.

IC STATEMENT - Operation at 5GHz Range
Caution:
1. The device for operation in the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the
potential for harmful interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems;
2. Users should also be advised that high-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e.
priority users) of the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5650-5850 MHz and that these radars
could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.
3. The maximum antenna gain permitted for devices in the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5470-

4. The maximum antenna gain permitted for devices in the band 5725-5850 MHz shall be such
that the equipment still complies with the e.i.r.p. limits specified for point-to-point and non
point-to-point operation as appropriate.


Avertissement:
1. Les dispositifs fonctionnant dans la bande 5 150-5 250 MHz sont réservés uniquement pour
une utilisation à l’intérieur afin de réduire les risques de brouillage préjudiciable aux systèmes
de satellites mobiles utilisant les mêmes canaux;
2. De plus, les utilisateurs devraient aussi être avisés que les utilisateurs de radars de haute
puissance sont désignés utilisateurs principaux (c.-à-d., qu’ils ont la priorité) pour les bandes
5 250-5 350 MHz et 5 650-5 850 MHz et que ces radars pourraient causer du brouillage et/
ou des dommages aux dispositifs LAN-EL.
3. Le gain d'antenne maximum autorisé pour les appareils fonctionnant sous les bandes de
fréquences 5250-5350 MHz et 5470-5725 MHz doit être tel que l'équipement est toujours
