Lanling Lasers
« on: September 18, 2012, 04:29:34 pm »

Anybody know anything about their laser products??

Most of the units quote figures of 100mw or more for the diodes however they cost the same or less as chauvet/ADJ lasers (which someone on this forum said are permit free in the US) and perform very similarly to those MI products (maybe a little bit brighter in some cases). Would those units require permits in the US? Are they more powerful/potentially dangerous than the above-mentioned MI units?

We do not have the same laws concerning lasers here but I feel safer going by the standards you guys are using.

Aside from probably being cheaply made copies- they would most certainly be illegal in the US, though they may not be in your area depending on what your laws are. The only time you can use a laser with a diode over 4.9mW in the US is if there is "fatbeam" or defraction technology being used. To determine the laser's safety the manufacturer must measure and report on the amount of laser light that can enter the pupil at any given point in time. Since fatbeam widens the beam, and diffraction splits the beam, this technology can be used to widen, or split a more intense beam so long the amount of light able to enter the pupil remains below 5mW. Anything above this and the operator must apply for a variance. (in the US)

Some of these lasers look like they may meet those criteria, but I doubt they would carry the proper designations and approvals to make them legal in the US. Are the ADJ or chauvet units in budget? Can you get them where you live? Or, maybe even a more pro laser manufacturer? High quality, higher power entertainment lasers are expensive...
