Footnotes:

  1. Due to our continuous product improvement program, specifications are subject to change without notice.
  2. Vanguard is a Class IV - High-Power Laser, whose beam is, by definition, a safety and fire hazard. Take precautions to prevent exposure to direct and reflected beams. Diffuse as well as specular reflections can cause severe skin or eye damage.
