General Warnings and Cautions
The following general warnings and cautions are applicable to Vescent Photonics instruments.
This instrument is intended for use by qualified personnel who recognize shock hazards or laser hazards and are familiar with safety precautions required to avoid possible injury. Read the instruction manual thoroughly before using to become familiar with the instrument’s operations and capabilities.
There are no serviceable parts inside the instrument. Work performed by persons not authorized by Vescent Photonics may void the warranty.
Although ESD protection is designed into the instrument, operation in a static-fee work area is recommended.
To avoid electrical shock hazard, connect the instrument to properly earth-grounded, 3-prong receptacles only. Failure to observe this precaution can result in severe injury or death
Do not clean outside surfaces of any Vescent Photonics products with solvents such as acetone. Front panels on electronics modules may be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution. Do not clean optics modules.
|Never connect or disconnect the D2-105 Laser Controller to/from a laser with the D2-105 energized. Always power down the D2-105 completely before making connections to the laser.|
|Any input/output connections to the SLICE instrument must be derived from a Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV) source.|
|If this instrument is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer in this manual or other relevant literature, protection provided by the instrument may be impaired.|
|Never connect either of the TEC leads on a plant or the SLICE-QTC to ground. This configuration is very likely to cause severe damage to the SLICE-QTC.|
