8mm in Diameter Compact Laser Modules: A Highly Reliable Solution

ProPhotonix Compact Laser Modules are designed for applications where space constraint is a key consideration. These economical laser modules offer a highly reliable solution ideally suited for a wide range of applications, including medical and industrial alignment, barcode scanning, targeting, and 3D measurement. This blog post will provide a detailed overview of the product, its features and benefits, and key applications.

Key Features:

  • Compact Design (Ø8mm)
  • Excellent Boresighting
  • High Reliability

Superior Boresighting (<0.5˚) and TTL Modulation features

The Compact Laser Module offers superior boresighting (<0.5˚) delivering enhanced alignment accuracy for OEMs. An added benefit of the improved boresighting is that it further eases installation into OEM applications.

A highly reliable laser module, measuring just 8mm in diameter, (the elliptical beam options are 8mm in diameter; line and cross generating lasers are 9mm in diameter).

The Compact Laser Modules are a complete laser solution and operate at a low current requirement meaning they can be battery operated via a handheld device.

The lasers are manufactured at ProPhotonix’ ISO certified laser facility with a wide range of options such as wavelength, output power, and package types available.  In addition, a recent upgrade of the Compact Laser Modules now offers CW/TTL modulation options.

Compact Laser Module optical options

  • Elliptical beam, line, and cross generating optics
  • Wavelengths: 520nm, 635nm, and 650nm
  • Optical output powers of 0.9mW and 4mW

As a versatile laser module, the Compact Laser Modules are available with optical output power options of 0.9 or 4mW as standard. An exceptionally durable laser module solution for OEM use where space is limited. Additional options available include a collimated or focused elliptical spot output, line or cross optics at any of 520, 635 or 650nm.
