The HSML-E from FrankFurt Laser Company is a Laser Diode Module that operates at a wavelength from 405 to 1060 nm. It provides a CW/pulsed output power of 1-50 mW with power stability of ±5% over 8 hours. This laser diode has a beam of divergence 0.5-1 mrad and a bore sighting of less than 8 mrad. It is available with an optional potentiometer for power adjustment, external TTL modulation up to 1 MHz and analog modulation up to 100 kHz. This laser diode can also be attached to optional beam shaping optics to produce beams in several configurations including non-Gaussian line, parallel lines, crosshair, single dot, single circle etc.
The HSML-E requires a DC supply of 5-9 V and consumes less than 200 mA of current. It is available in a black anodized aluminum housing that measures 12.6 (D) x 44 (L) mm and is ideal for machine vision, scanning, profiling and laser triangulation applications.
