Optics Bench System
Complete introductory package for optical experiments and demonstrations

Industrial Fiber Optics' Optics Bench System is an uncomplicated and economical system for conducting basic experiments with optical components and lasers. Designed for classroom use, the bench is easy to set up and requires little or no training, making students' laboratory time more productive. The kit includes mounts that permit attaching most lasers, light sources, mirrors, lenses, gratings and filters. It's perfect for any introductory science or physics laboratory or hobbyists.

All components are fabricated from aluminum and anodized for durability and longevity. All treads and mounts utilize SAE 1/4 - 20 so users can create their own mounts and fixtures as desired.

The Optics Bench System comes complete with mounting accessories for performing a multitude of optical and laser experiments with lenses, mirrors and lasers. Replacement components and additional accessories to enhance capabilities are available from Industrial Fiber Optics.

LASER CLASSIFICATIONS

All manufacturers of lasers used in the United States, must conform to regulations administered by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CDRH categorizes lasers as follows:

 Class 1

A laser or laser system which does not present a hazard to skin or eyes for any wavelength or exposure time. Exposure varies with wavelength. For ultraviolet, .2 to .4m exposure is less than from .8 or near IR, the exposure is < 200w. Consult CDRH regulations for specific information.

 Class 2

Any visible laser with an output less than 1 mW of power. Warning label requirements yellow caution label stating maximum output of 1 mW. Generally used as classroom lab lasers, supermarket scanners and laser pointers.

 Class 3a

Any visible laser with an output over 1 mW of power with a maximum output of 5 mW of power. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output of 5 mW. Also used as classroom lab lasers, in holography, laser pointers, leveling instruments, measuring devices and alignment equipment.

 Class 3b

Any laser with an output over 5 mW of power with a maximum output of 500 mW of power and all invisible lasers with an output up to 400 mW. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output. These lasers also require a key switch for operation and a 3.5-second delay when the laser is turned on. Used in many of the same applications as the Class IIIa when more power is required.

 Class 4

Any laser with an output over 500 mW of power. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output. These lasers are primarily used in industrial applications such as tooling, machining, cutting and welding. Most medical laser applications also require these high-powered lasers.
