EDFA Laser Safety -PL2000H Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier Version.

PL2000H Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier is a Class 3B laser product per IEC 60825-1:1993.Lasers in this class may cause damage if the beam enters the eye directly. This generally applies to lasers powered from 5–500 mW.

Lasers in this category can cause permanent eye damage with exposures of 1/100th of a second or more depending on the strength of the laser. A diffuse reflection is generally not hazardous but specular reflections can be just as dangerous as direct exposures. Lasers at the high power end of this class may also present a fire hazard and can lightly burn skin.

EDFA Lasert Safety Caution:
Use appropriate laser safety eye-wear when operating this device(Recommended)
Do not install or terminate fibers when amplifier is active.
DO not look directly at any fiber end. Always keep your eyes at least 30 cm away from any light-guiding fiber or device.
Do not view an activated fiber with optical instruments (e.g., magnifiers, microscopes)
Do not open the cover! Laser hazard might increase.
Keep in mind that merging multiple light signals will increase the hazard.
Allow only personnel trained in laser safety to operate this amplifier. Otherwise, injuries to personnel may occur.
