RS Components extends range of laser modules

May 2017 Sensors & Transducers

RS Components has expanded its range of high-performance laser diode modules from Global Laser. Designed for use in many specialist applications such as machine alignment and process control, as well as for maintaining precision laboratory and R&D equipment, the range includes a series of robust and reliable laser diode modules for use in a wide variety of alignment and positioning applications.

The 39 new products include laser modules, such as the Survelase Maxi 635 nm long-distance targeting laser modules. Available in 1, 5 and 13 mW options, the devices feature analog and TTL modulation with an excellent bore sighting accuracy and are suitable for applications where a small spot at a longer distance is required, such as for targeting, alignment and positioning.

There are also a number of additions to the Acculase series, including 5 mW and 20 mW 660 nm-wavelength red lasers, which enhances the current offering, plus 1 mW and 5 mW 520 nm direct-drive green lasers offering the highest level of optical and electrical performance whilst being very cost effective.

The new range also introduces three development kits, including the DCLM Lyte MV 35 mW 660 nm kit, which offers a digital control circuit allowing users to programme and control the laser output via USB interface using software developed by Global Laser.

Other products include the Alignment Laser GuideLine 2 series, which is a reliable and robust industrial alignment laser that comes with IP67 protection, a threaded barrel, and operates from standard industrial voltage sources.

Additionally, the new products include interchangeable pattern optics to enhance the existing LaserLyte Flex range for the projection of lines, crosses and grids. A selection of lenses and focus keys allows users to tailor modules to fit optical requirements by improving beam divergence or by changing spot/beam dimensions. There are also new laser safety glasses and other accessories including heavy-duty mounting clamps, leads, plugs and converters.
