SAFETY INFORMATION

CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS

The IOM-29-4,IOM-29-4-IR,IOM-29-4-LR,IOM-39-1andIOM-39-1-LRconnectors use Class 1 Laser transceivers. Read the following safety information before installing or operating one of these modules.

The Class 1 Laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This control loop eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers comply with the following safety standards:

21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).

IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).

CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).

When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1 accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered hazardous.

LASER RADIATION AND CONNECTORS

When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of radiant power exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6dBmor55x10-6 watts.

Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the optical port. The maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is 0.8 W cm-2 or 8x103 Wm-2 sr-1.

Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view laser output increases eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, you must remove power from the network adapter.

FIBER OPTIC PROTECTIVE CAPS

Warning READ BEFORE REMOVING FIBER OPTIC PROTECTIVE CAPS.

Cable assemblies and MMF/SMF ports are shipped with protective caps to prevent contamination. To avoid contamination, replace port caps on all fiber optic devices when not in use.

Cable assemblies and MMF/SMF ports that become contaminated may experience signal loss or difficulty inserting and removing cable assemblies from MMF/SMF ports.

Contamination can be removed from cable assemblies by:

1.Blowing surfaces with canned duster (Chemtronics p/n ES1270 or equivalent).

2.Using a fiber port cleaning swab (Alcoa Fujikura LTS p/n ACT-01or equivalent) saturated withoptical-gradeisopropyl alcohol, gently wipe the end surface of ferrules first; then wipe down the sides of both ferrules.

3.Blow ferrule surfaces dry with canned duster.

Contamination can be removed from MMF/SMF ports by:

1.Using the extension tube supplied with canned duster, blow into the optical port, being careful not to allow the extension tube to touch the bottom of the optical port.

2.Reconnect cable and check for proper mating. If problems remain, gently wipe out optical port with a DRY fiber port cleaning swab and repeat step 1.

Warning To avoid contamination, replace port caps on all fiber optic devices when not in use.
