MappyDot Laser Safety
The VL53L0X contains a laser emitter and corresponding drive circuitry. The laser output is designed to remain within Class 1 laser safety limits under all reasonably foreseeable conditions including single faults in compliance with IEC 60825-1:2014 (third edition).
The laser output will remain within Class 1 limits as long as the STMicroelectronics recommended device settings (API settings) are used and the operating conditions specified are respected. The MappyDot firmware conforms to the STMicroelectronics recommended device settings.
The laser output power must not be increased by any means and no optics should be used with the intention of focusing the laser beam.
Caution: Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
