Compliance testing and availability.
When you plug the config cable into the STA logger, it becomes a mobile hot spot. Because of that, it is an emitter of radio signals and is required to be compliant with certain rules. These rules vary from country to country and as such, we only ship units to countries in which we know we are compliant with their regulations. For example, in the USA the loggers are required to be compliant with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ensure there is no harmful interference produced. The following disclaimer applies:
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
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 or more 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.
The STA loggers have been tested to comply with the requirements for Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. Therefore, we will only ship loggers to these countries.
