Laser Pointer 1.0 to 5.0 m mW / Class IIIa
High-brightness, red light laser pointer with integral adjustable-focusing lens

Industrial Fiber Optics offers, for educational and other uses, laser pointers that produce either green or red light. The pointers are CDRH-compliant and bear all required regulatory labels. Our product line is unique because we offer CDRH Class II rated devices that are not available from others. (Class II lasers have a maximum peak power of 1 milliwatt [mW] in the visible range - the highest class rating that many school systems permit.)

The IF 564 is the best and brightest red light laser pointer in our product line. It produces a very bright beam of light and its 635 nm emission is a near match to the long-used helium-neon 632.8 nm emission laser. Featuring an adjustable lens, the laser beam can be focused to a fine spot for detail or "opened" to show a broader view for any type of optical experiment or presentation. This laser is a great product for educational use, audio/visual presentations and for presenting to customers as a gift.

Includes carrying case and two AAA batteries.

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.
