現代社会では、コンシューマー製品から医療、ツール、ラボ機器等に至るまで、どのような製品にもレーザーやLEDが使用されています。ULの光放射安全評価サービスは、簡単な光放射測定結果からIEC CBテストレポートやCB証明書まで、それぞれのメーカーに特有のニーズに応じた試験/評価データを提供します。







レーザーは製品に多くの科学技術の恩恵をもたらす一方、安全に対する懸念を生じさせることもあります(レーザー放射は特定の条件下において目や皮膚に危険を引き起こします)。二つのレーザー製品安全規格(米国におけるFDA/CDRH 21 CFR、米国外におけるIEC 60825-1)の主要な目的は、操作や保守を行うユーザーおよびサービスマンを保護する為に製品が適切な保護手段を持っていることを確認することです。



LED Radiation and LED Safety - Understanding Diverging Requirements

As the use of LEDs and their capabilities grow, so do the photobiological safety concerns associated with them – for example, the blue light hazard. Both the ANSI-based RP-27 and IEC 62471 series of standards address the photobiological hazards from LEDs. We perform the testing and evaluation needed to determine a product’s Risk Group hazard classification as defined in the applicable standards.

Our optical radiation laboratories evaluate all types of LED-based products, from LEDs used in bar code imaging to security cameras and beyond. Our reports help manufacturers confirm and document compliance with LED radiation safety requirements.

UV Radiation - Revealing Answers to Invisible Hazards

Broadband ultraviolet (UV) radiation may be emitted by LEDs or lamps. This UV radiation is primarily invisible, but can present a serious photobiological safety concern, damaging exposed skin and eyes.

There are several safety standards that address potential UV radiation hazards, including the ANSI-based RP-27 series, the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) Threshold Limit values for occupational and environmental health requirements, and the IEC 62471 series of standards.

Our optical radiation laboratories can evaluate UV radiation to any of these standards. Results are provided in the appropriate reporting format, helping increase turnaround times and access to global markets.
