The FARO Laser Tracker is a classified as a Class II laser product and meets the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Register 21 CPR parts 1000 and 1040, and those of international standard IEC EN 60825-1 2001-08.
There is no certifying body for IEC 60825 so we (or other manufacturers of laser based equipment) do not receive any certificates of compliance. We receive periodic accession reports from the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) based off safety reports that were provided to them during the design of the tracker. Attached is a portion of the initial safety report that was filed with the CDRH at original design of this series. Although the tracker has improved in performance and accuracy resulting in the X, Xi and ION series releases, none of the laser powers or wavelengths has changed.
Note: The full report contains assembly drawings of certain internal components of the tracker and cannot be released.
