The RF Safe® iPhone 12 QuantaCase™ RFS1 is a multi-functional phone case that incorporates RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology, RFID-blocking capabilities, and a phone stand feature. The case is designed to reflect electromagnetic radiation, including 5G frequencies, away from the user’s body through the use of conductive shielding fabrics in the front cover. It also includes an exposed RF Safe® notch for easy conductivity testing using an inexpensive Ohm meter. The built-in card slot provides RFID theft protection for credit cards and other RFID access cards. The QuantaCase™ RFS1 also protects the phone from cracks, dings, and scratches while providing a viewing stand feature. It is designed to be used by closing the radiation shielding front flap after taking or making a phone call and speaking as normal while the microphone and speaker remain fully functional. It is recommended to use the speaker phone option wherever possible to reduce exposure to electromagnetic frequencies. The case also allows for shielding the back of the device while held in the hand for texting. The RF Safe QuantaCase™ RFS1 aims to reduce the amount of radiation absorbed by the head and body while using a smartphone.
In addition, the QuantaCase™ RFS1 features a built-in RFID-blocking wallet that provides added security for your personal information by preventing unauthorized access to the RFID chips in your credit cards and other access cards. This feature also helps protect against RFID skimming, a form of identity theft that occurs when an unauthorized person uses an RFID reader to gain access to sensitive information from RFID-enabled cards.
The QuantaCase™ RFS1 also offers a convenient adjustable angle stand feature that allows you to easily convert the case into a stand for watching videos and other hands-free activities. This feature offers added versatility and convenience for those who like to use their phone for entertainment or hands-free activities.
To use the QuantaCase™ RFS1, simply close the radiation shielding front flap after taking/making a phone call and speak as you usually would. The microphone and speaker are fully functional for private calls; however, it is highly recommended to use the speaker phone option wherever possible to reduce exposure to electromagnetic frequencies. When storing the phone in your pocket, face the front flap towards your body to deflect the most intense line of sight radiation away from your body. When texting, the flap can be folded behind the phone to shield the back of the device while held in your hand for texting.
In summary, the RF Safe® iPhone 12 QuantaCase™ RFS1 is a protective phone case that offers a range of features to provide both phone protection and radiation protection. It includes RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology, RFID-blocking capabilities, a phone stand feature, and a built-in wallet. It provides an added layer of protection and peace of mind for those looking to reduce their exposure to electromagnetic frequencies from their smartphones.
The QuantaCase™ RFS1 deflects radiation by incorporating RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology, which uses conductive shielding fabrics in the front cover of the phone case. These fabrics are designed to reflect electromagnetic radiation, including 5G frequencies, away from the user’s body. The case features an exposed RF Safe® notch where an inexpensive Ohm meter can be used to test the conductivity of the microwave barrier between your body and device. The material is highly conductive which makes it effective in deflecting radiation away.
The idea behind this technology is that the conductive fabrics act as a barrier to the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the phone, preventing it from coming into close contact with the user’s body. This is similar to the principle behind a Faraday cage, which is a conductive enclosure that blocks electromagnetic fields. The conductive shielding fabrics in the front cover of the QuantaCase™ RFS1 create a similar barrier that reflects the radiation away from the user.
It’s important to note that the QuantaCase™ RFS1 does not block the phone signal completely, but it does deflect most of the radiation which is the more harmful part. This way the phone signal can enter and exit the back of the phone and the phone can function normally while reducing the exposure to the radiation.
Now you can reduce exposure to cell phone radiation in style! RF Safe’s Apple iPhone 12 QuantaCase™ RFS1 radiation shield discreetly provides layers of RF radiation protection where it is most needed. The RF Safe Apple iPhone 12 QuantaCase™ RFS1 isn’t just about improving the look of your iPhone 12 or being an essential accessory for protecting your new iPhone.
The RF Safe QuantaCase™ RFS1 for the Apple iPhone 12 protects the most important thing by simply reducing the amount of iPhone 12 radiation absorbed in your head and body.
Most materials are transparent to microwave radiation from smartphone devices. As a result, microwave energy is absorbed into a user’s body closest to where the cell phone is being carried or used. The QuantaCase™uses specially placed materials that deflect the most intense microwave radiation from smartphone devices away from you.
When a phone is used with a heads-free device, and the phone is carried in your pocket, radiant energy is absorbed much faster than at the head because tissues and organs such as the liver, kidneys, or reproductive organs provide much better conductivity than the skull and simply put most of your body’s major organs have no bone protection like the brain does.
The essential requirement of any cell phone radiation shielding is that it is electrically conductive. The Apple iPhone 12 QuantaCase™ RFS1 is lined with highly conductive RF shielding materials designed to deflect cell phone radiation away from your body. Testing the conductivity of shielding material inside the QuantaCase™ RFS1 is an inexpensive way to verify the material being used supports the physics necessary to reflect microwaves and provide a conductive barrier between your iPhone 12 and your body.
Materials Used for Electromagnetic Radiation Shielding
RF Shielded fabric is made from polyester filaments woven with a blend of micro-fine conductive threads. The shielding fabric is combined with a proprietary process for deflecting potentially harmful radiation.
RF Safe QuantaCase™ RFS1 Shielding Mesh is visible inside the earpiece speaker hole, which allows the metal alloys used in the RF shielding to be tested for conductivity. Conductive adhesive layer the shielding mesh seamlessly in full compliance with EU Nickel Directive 94/27/EC.
Designed to deflect radiation from iPhone 12 smartphones
The RF Safe QuantaCase™ RFS1 only incorporates shielding mechanisms that utilize deflection. Absorption (attenuation) is never used to prevent affecting the iPhone 12 software regulating RF power output. RF Safe only uses absorption technologies on wires (Ferrite Beads), such as on an air-tube headset plugged into your iPhone.
How QuantaCase™ RFS1 Electromagnetic Radiation Shielding Works
Electromagnetic radiation consists of coupled electric and magnetic fields. The electric field produces forces on the charge carriers (i.e., electrons) within the conductor. As soon as an electric field is applied to the surface of an ideal conductor, it induces a current that causes charge displacement inside the conductor that cancels the applied field inside, at which point the current stops.
Varying magnetic fields generate eddy currents that repel the applied magnetic fields. The result is that electromagnetic radiation is reflected from the conductor’s surface.
QuantaCase™ RFS1 deflects Apple iPhone 12 radiation, as shown in the illustration. By simply keeping the shielded flip cover between your body and device, whether used to your ear or carried in your pocket – you have the shielding you need to cover the entire front of the phone to deflect potentially harmful excess radiation.
