Product description
Risk
This product poses a serious risk of damage to sight, skin lesions and electric shock because of insufficient insulation and protection against laser radiation if used incorrectly. In particular: - the laser beam is highly effective at a distance of 2-3 cm from the spacer on all settings (low, middle, high). This is sufficient to cause irreversible retina damage, among other things; - it is likely that the product can be classified as Laser Class 4 contrary to Class IIIb as labelled; - the product has accessible live parts through the power supply voltage to earth of 230 V~/50Hz causing risk of electric shock; - the product does not have: the required access control (keypad code, key, etc.) or the required time switch that reacts when the device is idle and automatically switches it off; - the required safety lock (the laser can be operated without any controlled function enable, e.g. body resistance measurement, or similar). Moreover, even if the instructions recommend that the product device be kept out of children's reach, the possibility of damage resulting from foreseeable misuse cannot be ruled out, mainly due to lack of access control and safety lock. The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant requirements of the European standard EN 60335.
