    Default FDA 21 CFR Compliant Laser Warning Label Generator

    I've recently given my laser warning label generator at openlpm.com an overhaul. I think it's been linked here before, but I don't think it was (at the time) something that the majority of you could actually make use of.

    I went out and found the requirements for laser warning labeling (here) so I could modify my warning label generator accordingly. I'm going to put together a "Laser Radiation Emitted from this Aperture" template soon. 21 CFR technically requires a slightly different template (black on yellow) for class II/IIa systems - I can look into making that, but for now I think using the IIIa and higher template will probably be fine.

    I made a few key changes. Firstly, it defaults to red as the beam color on the label (this is per 21 CFR requirements) unless you specify otherwise. It has two inputs for wavelength: one for the plaintext wavelength to display on the label, and one to describe the beam color on the label. This allows labels to be generated for things like multiline Argon systems, whitelight Krypton systems, and projectors (you can enter things like 457-528).

    The "system type" field now has a text box to enter a custom system type. This allows the generator to support things like "Diode/DPSS."

    Standard label:
    http://www.openlpm.com/res/warning.p...ss=IIIa&sign=1

    Pulsed laser:
    http://www.openlpm.com/res/warning.p...lass=IV&sign=1

    Multiline laser:
    http://www.openlpm.com/res/warning.p...lass=IV&sign=1

    Projector:
    http://www.openlpm.com/res/warning.p...lass=IV&sign=1

    Hopefully this will be more helpful to more people now that I made it... useful.

    If you see anything that needs correcting or modification (either on the labels or on the site in general) please let me know. I've got good Google ranking; I want to make sure the information coming out of the site is 100%.

    Hey Trevor Thanks -and also these pics are all going to a 611.9 nm etc. - all links are for the same page.
    Wiki:The first visible wavelength laser diode was demonstrated by Nick Holonyak, Jr. in 1962.

    It does multi-wavelength now, sweet!

    I wasn't using my webhost enough to justify spending >$100/year on it.

    $100 goes a long way toward buying groceries. Sorry.

    It's back on a new domain!

    http://openlpm.com/tools.php

    For multi-wavelength labels the text flows off the edge of the label now... probably a result of some updates to the GD library.

    I'll look into it... but in the meantime, it's usable again.
