& 30 vac rms. These levels must not be exceeded.

Maintenance, repairs and electrical connections should be


performed by a suitably qualified person for the country of
installation.

Intended Use
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the
protection provided by the equipment may be impaired.

Laser Classification
The Model LS4000-1 Non-contact Length and
Speed Gauge (Model LS4000-1) is classified as a
IIIb laser device. This category contains infrared
and visible laser devices with powers up to 500
mW. The optical sensor in the system uses a 50
mW solid-state laser device operating between
760 and 800 nm (near infrared region of the
spectrum).
A class IIIb product must have the following
safety features:

A 5-second delay after power-up before


laser radiation is emitted from the sensor.

An indicator light to inform personnel near the sensor that laser


radiation is being emitted.

A mechanical device to physically block the laser beam from exiting the
sensor.

An interlock circuit to shut off the laser when the circuit is opened.

All hazards must be properly identified with warning labels.

LaserSpeed 4000-1 Operator Guide


Safety Information

These basic safety features are incorporated to promote safe operation of the
laser.
A class 3b laser must also have a keyswitch to power the laser ensuring that
only trained personnel can operate the instrument. Because the location of the
sensor can often make it difficult to access a keyswitch, the keyswitch needs
to be installed by the final user. It should be placed in a location that will be
readily accessible to the operators. For more information on installing the laser
keyswitch, see the Installing the System section in the LS4000-1 Instruction
Handbook.
The user of a laser device must comply with a different set of regulations.
Many countries and individual states have passed legislation regarding the
use of laser products.
The following system specifications will help establish appropriate safety
measures.

Laser Safety Precautions


The laser beam in the optical sensor is very powerful and can permanently
damage eyes not protected by laser safety glasses. To avoid exposing
yourself to hazardous radiation, you must take these precautions:

Never look into the laser beam. If you must look at the beam, view it
from an angle and in the direction in which the beam is traveling.

The beams emitted from the Model LS4000-1 are invisible to the
unaided eye. Return the beam shutter to the closed position when the
system is not in use or during setup.

Ensure that all direct reflections are blocked.

Remove all rings, watches, or jewelry from your hands when


working on or near the sensorcan cause hazardous reflections.

Never install the instrument at eye level.

Operate the system only with people who have been instructed in laser
safety.

Post warning signs and lights that are active when laser is operating.

Revision D (Dec, 2006)

LaserSpeed 4000-1 Operator Guide


Safety Information

Laser Emission Indicator


The LS4000-1 has a laser emission indicator on the top of the sensor. When
lit, it indicates that the laser in the system is active and potentially harmful
laser radiation is being emitted from the unit.

Delayed Laser Startup


The laser emission indicator is turned on immediately after power is applied,
the keyswitch is turned on, and the laser interlock is closed. There is a 7second delay before the laser is powered on. This delay gives personnel
working in the vicinity of the laser sufficient time to take appropriate action
upon viewing the laser emission indicator.

Remote Interlock Capability


According to the CDRH regulations, each sensor must have a remote interlock
capability to allow you to enable or disable each sensor from a remote
location. The remote interlock is located on the 25-pin D-sub at the back of the
sensor. The interlock pin (Pin 16) must be connected to ground in order for the
laser to operate. A remote switch can be installed between the interlock pin
and ground. Multiple switches can be run in series fashion to incorporate
multiple safety interlock locations.

Protective Eyewear
Wearing protective eyewear is recommended when working on or near the
sensor. Use extra care because the laser emits invisible light at a nominal
wavelength of 780 nanometers (near the infrared portion of the optical
spectrum).
The lenses of the protective glasses or goggles should have an optical density
of greater than 5 in the wavelength range of 700 to 860 nanometers. Luminous
transmittance should be 45 percent.
Protective eyewear can be purchased from these manufacturers:

software to make the connection. If the search fails, re-check all RS232
connections and search again. If the RS232 still is not working, try another
computer. Some computers do not support a baud rate of 115,200.

Operation of the Gauge With LaserTrak


LaserTrak for Windows is a Windows-based software program, which allows
you to acquire and display the length and velocity in real time. The LaserTrak
software configures the respective gauges operating parameters, displays
data, and collects data, which can be stored to a computer hard drive. This
gauge family provides a set of versatile tools that are applicable for a wide
variety of process measurement schemes. LaserTrak allows you to take full
advantage of this versatility in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.
There are several features available with the LaserTrak software. LaserTrak
mimics a chart recorder output on the screen and presents a time history
depiction of the data. LaserTrak can acquire and store data. LaserTrak can
display the stored data in a previously acquired data file.

LaserTrak for Windows


Note:

LaserTrak Version 3.6 or greater must be used with the LS4000-1


gauge.

A Quick Tour
This section provides an operational sequence to help you use the LaserTrak
