o Vapor generated from burning batteries may irritate eyes, skin and throat. If inhalation occurs, move to a well-ventilated area immediately and seek medical advice.
Safety and Wireless Devices
Scientific research on wireless devices and radio frequency (“RF”) energy has been conducted worldwide for many years, and continues. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) set policies and procedures for wireless devices. The FDA issued a website publication on health issues related to usage of cell phones where it states, “The scientific community at large believes that the weight of the scientific evidence does not show an association between exposure to RF from cell phones and adverse health outcomes.” Still the scientific community does recommend conducting additional research to address gaps in knowledge. That research is being conducted around the world and the FDA continues to monitor developments in this field. You can access the FDA website at http://www.fda.gov (Under “C” in the subject index, select Cell Phones > Research.). You can also contact the FDA toll free at (888) 463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA. The FCC issued its own website publication stating that “there is no scientific evidence that proves that wireless telephone usage can lead to cancer or other problems, including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.” The publication is available at https://www.fcc.gov/cgb/cellular.html or through the FCC at (888) 225-5322 or (888) CALL-FCC. The National Cancer Institute (“NCI”) states that concerns about the potential health effects of using cellular phones – “and specifically the suggestion that using a cell phone may increase a person’s risk of developing brain cancer – are not supported by a growing body of research on the subject.”.
1. Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you are concerned about RF, there are several simple steps you can take to minimize your RF exposure. You can, minimize usage of the device near the body. You can also place more distance between your body and the source of the RF, as the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance.
Wireless devices marketed in the United States are required to meet safety requirements regardless of whether they are used against the head or against the body.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
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.
The Gimbal™ Proximity Beacon has been tested to the limits for a Class B digital device, according to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. The Gimbal Proximity Beacon uses and radiates radio frequency energy and if not installed and used according to instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications or be interfered with. There is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If the Gimbal Proximity Beacon does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by removing the battery from the Gimbal Proximity Beacon, try to correct the interference by taking one or more of the following actions:
• Increase the distance between the 2net Hub and radio or television receiver
• Consult the dealer where you bought your radio/TV or an experienced radio/TV technician
If the Gimbal Proximity Beacon is being interfered with try to correct the interference by taking the following actions:
• Make sure that the Gimbal Proximity Beacon is no closer than 10 ft (3 m) of a Wi-Fi access point, microwave oven or 2.4 GHz cordless phone.
• Increase the distance between the Gimbal Proximity Beacon and all other electronic equipment by moving the Gimbal Proximity Beacon.
CAUTION: The Gimbal Proximity Beacon should not be used in airplanes, hospitals or locations where cellular telephones and other electronic devices are prohibited.
4. Industry of Canada Information
