Do AntMiners comply with Part 15 of the U.S. Federal Communication Commission's rules and regulations?

I tagged this question with "safety" because implicit in my question is what percentage of watts going into an AntMiner get converted to RF interference. If it's a lot, it could be a safety issue, especially since the cases of many AntMiners (e.g., S5s) are open and thus do not act as Faraday cages.

  • Why is this tagged safety? Part 15 regulates electronic interference. – Nick ODell Apr 7 '15 at 16:52

Yes. On their sales listing they note specifically that they have passed FCC and CE approval, and their products bear the markings for this accordingly.


I don't believe they are shooting straight - I have noticed strong emissions in the UHF and VHF ranges.

  • That is why semiconductor devices should be shielded - I am guessing they are intended to be arranged in a metallic case to keep emissions down. I have also had issues with one miner's spurious emissions disconnecting the adjacent miner's wifi by destroying the signal to noise ratio. – TheGoodDoctor Jan 5 '16 at 0:03

    How strong of emissions, and how did you measure them? – Nick ODell Jan 5 '16 at 1:06
