Laser sensors Safety Standards and Safety Classifications

Abstract: The primary concern in laser sensor safety is the possibility of eye injury. A secondary one is damage
to the skin. Biological effects of laser light may depend on a number of factors including the wavelength
of the light, its power, whether it possesses a continuous wave nature or is pulsed, or whether it is the result
of a direct exposure of laser light rather than a diffuse reflection.
Lasers are to be treated with great respect and caution.

Keywords: Safety Standars, Laser Sensor, Laser Diodes, Safety Classifications.
