Why are they better?These:
Eagle Pair® 190-540nm & 800-2000nm Laser Safety Goggles
They will work well for protection with green lasers too.
OK, thanksThey are better because they offer protection for 808nm and 1064nm.
Most likely you will end up getting a 532nm (green) laser at some point.
Most likely you will not get a a higher quality one, and the one you get will leak IR.
The most common variety, can leak both 1064, and 808nm.
While I wholly agree with you, please Enough with 1 line posts that bump threads.As you said, it may be lame to some people, but at the end of the day, $50.00 + is nothing compared to your eyesight, so yes, get your paws on some goggles!
thank god someone did it :thanks:While I wholly agree with you, please Enough with 1 line posts that bump threads.
You have nearly 200 posts, with well over half of them (if not more) being one line, or less.
Two pairs.whats the best way to go about aligning an RGB system? have two pairs of glasses and align two at a time is the best option i could come up with. any other options. IIRC RGB glasses are hard to come by or have very low light transfer so you cant see anyways...
i grabbed those from your test and will test them myself when i have my LPM. i should get it by the end of the month. so we will see as far as that goes.Two pairs.
I have gone through every goggle manufacturer I could think of, and looked at the options they provide. You're either stuck with very very low VLT and mediocre protection, or getting two pairs to cover the full range you need with reasonable VLT where you can see what you're doing.
I did recently test a pair of "cheap" goggles that seemed to perform very well for 405, 445, 532, 635, and 660, but idk if that was fluke, I want to test a few more pairs when I have the money to see what's going on.
yeah the certified are pricey i would have no problem paying 100$+ if it was RGB but 2 sets of 150$ glasses are way out of my rangeI wouldn't mind a set of goggles for red actually... the problem is I can't find one that first well over goggles, except from certified goggle suppliers, and those are kind of pricey.
Eagle pair are coming over from china, and it looks like JL also carries them... the fit over glasses version.
808nm,1064nm IR filter [OL-FL] - $3.50 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerceIf you're talking about the Uvex, yeah they work well for 405, 445, 532nm.
Not quite as well as the eagle pair, but they are also somewhat lighter.
They do absolutely nothing for IR unfortunately.
i have never used the red ones. you never tested them for red right? i doubt they will block it but a cheap pair for red would be a good find as well.Yup, I gave a way a couple of pairs, keep one in the car, and at least one pair left lying around at home.
And I have the totally destroyed pair from testing I use mostly to test for IR.
The fluctuate in price. I've seen them for ~$7 at one point, and in terms of quality, way, way better, vs those cheap red ones from china.
