General Laser Safety Guidelines for Juniper Networks Devices

Devices with single-mode optical interfaces are equipped with laser transmitters, which are considered Class 1 Laser product by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and are evaluated as a Class 1 Laser Product according to EN 60825–1 +A11 +A2 requirements.

When working around devices with optical interfaces, observe the following safety guidelines to prevent eye injury:

  • Do not look into unterminated ports or at fibers that connect to unknown sources.

  • Do not examine unterminated optical ports with optical instruments.

  • Avoid direct exposure to the beam.

    Laser Warning:

    Unterminated optical connectors can emit invisible laser radiation. The lens in the human eye focuses all the laser power on the retina, so focusing the eye directly on a laser source—even a low-power laser—could permanently damage the eye.
