The Compact ZC diode laser from Z-Laser Optoelektronik GmbH is available in 5- and 24-VDC versions. The laser projection can be continuously adjusted at the corrugated front part of the housing. The 635-nm device is available in six power levels from 3 up to 30 mW. The line length varies between 1 and 7 m, depending on output and installation height. The 5-V model is 60 mm long, and the 24-V is 93 mm long. Both have 20-mm diameters and are compatible with all of the company's mountings. An 18-mm screw thread can be fixed with a cap nut to sheet metal with a matching drill hole, for applications where space is limited or standard mounting is not possible, or where the laser is to be integrated into a machine.
