Regulatory specifications

The following information contains some of the regulatory specifications for the product.

Exposure to radio frequency radiation

The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has implemented regulations for laser products manufactured since August 1, 1976. Compliance is mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The device is certified as a “Class 1” laser product under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968. Since radiation emitted inside the device is completely confined within protective housings and external covers, the laser beam cannot escape during any phase of normal user operation.

WARNING: Using controls, making adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified in this user guide might result in exposure to hazardous radiation.
