Contains FCC ID: 2AAD3AA2G1J1
This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other 
antenna or transmitter.
This available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are 
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that 
these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices 
emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being 
used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating issue), 
exposure of low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known 
adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any 
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might 
occure, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research.
DMC-ZS35 has been tested and found to comply with FCC radiation exposure limits 
set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) 
Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65.
FCC 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 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.
FCC Caution: To assure continued compliance, follow the attached installation 
instructions and use only shielded interface cables with ferrite core when connecting 
to computer or peripheral devices.
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for 
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.
