• The theoretical values for router emissions are well below the Health Canada guidelines. Typically, the value at 4 m is approximately 70,000 times lower than the exposure limits, and at 1 m, it is approximately 4,000 times lower. The routers are therefore perfectly safe.
• Keep in mind that the power density of emissions diminishes rapidly with distance. At 500 m, it is virtually impossible to measure a router’s emission levels accurately, because they are more than one billion times lower than the standard in effect. At 100 m, the emission power is close to forty-three million times lower than the standard.
The meters emit radiofrequencies in the 902-to-928–MHz band, the same one used by baby monitors.
