Modern 3D scanners capture an object with increasing precision and detail. Blue light is often used for measurement, which can lead to irreversible eye damage at high intensities. For many users, the question therefore arises as to whether dental 3D scanners with blue measuring light pose a risk. The article linked below, written by Dr. Christoph Prall (Head of Development, Research and Innovation at smart optics) and Dipl.-Ing. Jörg Friemel (CEO of smart optics), provides answers and explains what it means when a 3D scanner is assigned to a risk group according to DIN EN 62471. It also summarizes the most important criteria for safe scanning operation.
The most important information for you: All smart optics dental scanners are not assigned to any risk group and can be operated without hesitation.
