FLUO TECHNOLOGY DECLARATIONS
Fluo Technology products intended for sale and use in worldwide markets comply with the applicable international
requirements for product safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), essential safety & usage information, WEEE, RoHS,
quality, and for use in hazardous locations.
Products delivered into the European Economic Area (EEA) comply with the directives of the European Community (EC).
Products delivered into North America comply with their respective directives.
The products bears CE and/or FCC marks which is tested and certified by Arduino to comply with the EC and/or USA directives.
SAFETY
All boards are labelled with the FCC and CE logo, as they meet the electromagnetic compatibility standards set in
their respective jurisdictions. Arduino/Genuino products meet the essential requirements
of EU Directive 2001/95/CE General directive on products safety and Directive 93/68/CE.
FCC COMPLIANCE
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.
NOTE
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 o 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 following parties are responsible for the compliance of radio frequency equipment with the applicable
standards: in the case of equipment subject to authorization under the verification procedure, the manufacturer or,
in the case of imported equipment, the importer. If subsequent to manufacture and importation, the radio frequency
equipment is modified by any party not working under the authority of the responsible party, the party performing
the modification becomes the new responsible party.
TESTING
Products are subject to triple testing to make sure they are not faulty:
→ First, printed circuit boards are thoroughly tested for short circuits and open connections.
→ Then, boards are powered (and, in products containing a microcontroller, the bootloader is programmed) to check there
are no macroscopic problems preventing the board from turning on.
→ Finally, the most in-depth test: the board is placed into a custom bed of nails tester,
and programmed by a test program, which checks its overall functionality.
All boards are tested to meet USA and EU consumer safety, health and environmental requirements.
