HUDSON, N.H., April 27, 2011 — Laser Components USA Inc. has addressed the problem of laser markings appearing out of focus and much too large when magnification optics are used. The company has developed the FlexPoint laser modules specifically for applications in which a microscope is used as the optical source of magnification. The modules display a “clean” spot even at multiple levels of magnification.
Inside the modules, high-quality optical elements are used and adjusted manually to obtain the optimal alignment position, allowing, for example, a beam diameter of 0.02 mm to be achieved at a distance of 100 mm (1/e2).
Despite the complexity of the optics, the external dimensions are compact, measuring 95 mm long and 12 mm in diameter. Both the wavelength and the output power can be adjusted to meet customer needs.
The modules are available at operating voltages of 4.5 to 6 VDC or 8 to 30 VDC. Due to low power consumption of <50 mW at an output power of 0.5 mW, the lasers can generally be connected to existing electrical circuits.
Features include a potential-free housing and reverse voltage protection.
