Eye safety and laser safety information for FARO® Laser Trackers is defined by laser beam emission technical specifications, such as the laser beam safety classification, wavelength range, and output power. The laser emissions label on the back of all FARO Laser Trackers provides the laser beam technical specifications.
You can also find more information and technical specifications in the Laser Tracker User Manual. Click here and look for your Laser Tracker model to download the appropriate user manual, then review chapters 1 and 2.
Laser Tracker operators and bystanders are not required to wear protective gear when close to the Tracker or when using it. However, you should avoid direct exposure to your eye at all times even though the human blink reaction to bright light provides a natural mechanism of protection to the visible laser beam.
FARO VantageS or VantageE Laser Trackers
These Laser Trackers emit a Class I red laser beam that has a wavelength of 637 nm and a maximum output of 390 milliwatts .
FARO Vantage or ION® Laser Trackers
These Laser Trackers emit a Class II red laser beam with a maximum output of 1 milliwatt.
- The Vantage Laser Tracker laser beam has a wavelength range between 632 and 663 nm.
- The ION X, Xi, and SI Trackers laser beam has a wavelength range that is Helium-Neon (HeNe) 633 nm.
The ADM for both the Vantage and ION Laser Trackers emits a Class I laser beam that has wavelength range of 1550 nm and a maximum output of less than 0.79 milliwatts.
