*Class 3B PIV Laser Safety

Lasers of the Class 3B are considered potentially dangerous when a direct or specular reflective beam gets into the naked, unprotected eye (i.e. Direct glare into the beam).

Class 3B Lasers are NOT suitable for Educational purpose. Eye protection must be worn but this eliminates the Visual Educational aspect of the PIV technology, since the student wearing the glasses cannot see the flow motion illuminated by the laser.

If you are considering buying a PIV System for Educational use ONLY, please consider ordering the MiniPIV Suite with the LED light option, safer in an education environment. The LED miniPIV is also available as a stand alone or as an upgrade to FLOWCOACH system to enhance its already built in LED based PIV capability.

The following precautions should be taken when using a Class 3B laser, to avoid a direct glare into the beam and to prevent an uncontrolled, specular reflection:

  1. The laser should only be operated in a monitored area.
  2. Unintended specula reflections should be avoided through extra care.
  3. Where possible, the laser beam should end its dedicated optical path on a diffusely scattered material. The colour and reflecting capacity of this material must allow beam alignment, and at the same time keep the dangers of reflection to a minimum.
  4. Eye protection is necessary even at the slightest possibility of a direct or specular reflective beam getting into the eye, or if there is a diffuse reflection that does not comply with (c).
  5. All accesses to the laser surveillance area need to be clearly marked with warning signs.
