Laser Safety Hazard Calculator - The Evaluator

Now with three monthly subscription packages and pricing levels to choose from: Advanced, Intermediate, or Basic, your organization has the flexibility to pay for only the features it needs.

This innovative System provides a reliable way to easily double-check laser safety calculations. It is based on the ANSI Z136.1 American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers and will perform repeated calculations of maximum permissible exposure (MPE), optical density (OD), nominal ocular hazard distance (NOHD), nominal hazard zone (NHZ), and laser hazard classification.

The Evaluator Benefits:

  • Change laser settings by easily switching between CW, Single Pulse or repetitively pulsed lasers as well as adjusting the beam profile (circular, elliptical or rectangular)
  • Designed for today’s LSO – save reports*, view graphs* and make suggestions for new features
  • Easy Navigation, Accurate Results! More options to fine tune the accuracy of your calculations
  • Any revisions to the standard during your subscription will be immediately reflected in the system
  • Definitions and references from the current ANSI Z136.1 standard provided for keywords and acronyms
  • Experiment with various laser, eyewear or barrier combinations with enhanced interactive graphic displays
  • Graphically illustrates use of eye protection, shows difference between

Plus, you can easily upgrade or downgrade to any subscription level at any time — making it a flexible and scalable solution for dynamic organizations.

The Evaluator - Calculation Levels

Specially designed for users with minimal experience, the Basic package provides the essential and fundamental laser hazard calculations in an easy and simple format. The user-friendly navigation makes calculating eye hazards, wavelength, pulse width and other important calculations easier for novice users.

Medical facilities, small colleges, education institutions and other organizations with basic laser equipment and applications would benefit greatly from this affordable and practical laser safety hazard software package.

Unlike the web-based system, the Desktop Evaluator is delivered on a USB drive, from which users can download the program to their computer. As a software program stored on the computer, the Desktop Evaluator eliminates the need for internet access.

Similar to the web-based version, the Desktop Evaluator performs a number of repeated calculations based on the ANSI Z136.1-2014 American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers, including: maximum permissible exposure (MPE), optical density (OD), nominal ocular hazard distance (NOHD), nominal hazard zone (NHZ) and laser hazard classification.

Both versions of the Evaluator offer users an easy and seamless experience, assisting LSOs of all skill levels complete necessary safety calculations in the field. For instance, both versions allow effortless switching of laser settings between CW, Single Pulse, or repetitively pulsed lasers, in addition to the adjusting of the beam profile (circular, elliptical or rectangular). However, now companies can choose the format that best meets their specific needs. Compatible with Windows 7, 8 or 10 PDF viewer, the easily downloadable program – which most closely resembles the web-based version’s advanced subscription level – lives on your computer, offering constant, uninterrupted access.
