When decommissioning an old laser, its highly likely components of the old device are incompatible with the upgraded laser system. For safety reasons its imperative used optical equipment is kept alongside old laser systems unless otherwise approved by a specialist. Even so, a rule of thumb is to keep systems and their dedicated components together so as to avoid potential accidents.
The primary reason is to ensure components such as correct laser eye safety protection is installed for each laser system.
