Description

The laser diode beam sources series 5LT-1 produce a semi-telecentric laser line with a line length in the range of 4.8 mm. For most laser diodes the intensity profile is Gaussian in line direction clipped by an aperture at line length 4.8 mm with an edge intensity of typ. <40%. In some cases the line length is slightly smaller. In this case the line length is given on the 13.5%-level. The beam is Gaussian in line direction and truncated at 4.8 mm. The line width is constant along the laser line. Across the laser line the intensity distribution is Gaussian. 

Laser Micro Line Generators designed to produce lines with small line width. They have a small depth of focus (in this case the depth of focus is the Rayleigh range). Laser Macro Line Generators like the corresponding lasers of series 5LTM have common basic optical features but are designed to generate laser lines with an extended depth of focus.

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. Optionally the lasers can be equipped with RS232 serial interface for laser control and data read-out.

For this laser type the working distance is fixed. A fine-adjustment of the distance between laser and target is recommended for fine-focusing in order to achieve minimal line width.
