SPI Lasers has extended the CE validation of its redPower R4 CW/M fibre laser products for incorporation against the relevant EN standards covering EMC, electrical safety, laser safety and safety related parts of control systems. As a result of this validation, SPI will now apply the CE mark to its range of the redPower R4 CW/M fibre laser products under the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC and the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2004/108/EC.
SPI Lasers wide range of redEnergy G3 pulsed fibre laser products has also been enhanced to meet a range of EN standards covering EMC and Electrical Safety, and so SPI will now apply the CE mark to this product range.
The company notes that there are many benefits from applying a CE mark to a product, but that most significantly it will facilitate SPI Lasers' customers in certifying their own systems. In addition, the CE mark indicates that products have been designed to high standards and whilst its scope centres around European standards it has also been extended to include the “CB” rating for corresponding requirements under US standards and other international standards (for the redPower R4 products).
David Parker, CEO of SPI Lasers added: 'Applying the CE mark is an important differentiator for our customers and demonstrates that SPI Lasers is one of the leading fibre laser providers. It facilitates customers seeking compliance standards for their own systems and indicates that products have been designed to high standards. We are extremely pleased to be able to offer products that will now carry the CE mark.'
