1.4.2. UNITED STATES FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMISSION
The United States Communications Act of 1934 vested the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
with the authority to regulate laser systems that emits electromagnetic radiation in the radio frequency
spectrum. The purpose of the Communication Act was to prevent harmful electromagnetic interference
(EMI) from affecting authorized radio communication services in the frequency range above 9 kHz.
1.4.3. UNITED STATES FCC REQUIREMENTS
The FCC regulation that governs laser system is fully described in 47 CFR. The marking system has
been tested and found to comply by proving performance features that have met or exceeded the
requirements of 47 CFR, Part 15.
1.4.4. USER INFORMATION
This laser system has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device
pursuant to Part 15 of FCC regulations. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference when the laser system is operated in an industrial environment. This
laser system generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause disruptive interference.
Safe operation of the laser requires the use of external beam block to
safely block the beam from travelling beyond the desired work area.
Use a firebrick or similar non-dispersive, non-combustible material as
the block. NEVER use organic material or metals as the beam blocker.
Organic material, in general, are combustible and metals act as
reflectors that may create an area of immediate danger.
