Guide for EMF Exposure Assessment of Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies and Devices
|Publication Date:||24 September 2020|
This guide provides references to the appropriate methodology for classifying Internet of Things (IoT) devices based on radio frequency (RF) exposure characteristics. The use and operating modes for a wide variety of devices are considered by grouping them into several deployments and following an appropriate assessment route. Classification of devices is based on frequency, bandwidth, radiated power, and typical installation configuration. The methodology applies to both the short-range (from less than 1 m to 1 km) and long-range (greater than 1 km) technologies that operate from 0 Hz up to 300 GHz frequency range. The available standards and documents applicable for the compliance assessment of IoT technologies/solutio
This guide does not specify measurement and computational methods to assess the exposure of IoT devices, even in the cases there are no appropriate assessment methods. Instead, this guide indicates gaps in available assessment methods, but is not intended to establish the assessment methodology.
