FeaturesLaser Diode Collimators with circular Gaussian beam profile with RS232 interface.
- Laser Diode Collimator 55CM/55CR
- Collimated beam diameters (truncated below the 13.5%-level) max. 13 mm
- Angled version: 55CR
Series 55CM/55CR, 90CM/90CR and 95CM/95CR with RS232 interface
Laser Diode Collimators transform the divergent light of a laser diode into a collimated beam, while maintaining the Gaussian intensity distribution and the intensity profile of the laser diode. They differ in max. diameter of the collimated beam.
55CM vs. 90CM and 95CM
The Laser Diode Collimators all have a Gaussian intensity profile. The 55CM/55CR and 90CM/90CR produce collimated beams with Gaussian beam profile while maintaning the intensity profile of the laser diode - in this case circular. The maximum beam diameter available is smallest for the series 55CM/55CR and largest for series 90CM/90CR.
The laser has integrated electronics for control of the laser output power. The output power can be controlled using the modulation input ports (TTL and analog) or manually using the potentiometer.
The lasers are equipped with an RS232 interface for laser control and data read-out. It provides e.g. control of laser power or allows to switch the laser ON and OFF and it allows to read and store critical data, like the hours of operation or the laser current for maintenance planning purposes.
Adjustment of collimation settings
The collimation can be adjusted by using a hex key for series 55CM/55CR and an eccentric key for series 90CM/90CR and 95CM/95CR. Please note that this affects beam parameters like collimated beam diameter and beam divergence.
These high quality lasers can e.g. be used for machine vision applications.
