This is a Red Laser Replacement Module for various laser effect units.
and can be used in various other applications and experiments.
Very bright ! 100mw light output ( =0.1watt)
Operating parameters : 240mA @ 3v
Power consumption : 720mW
it can easily burn holes in black plastic film…
Comes in an aluminum heat-sink assembly with adjustable (focus-able) lens.
New modules come fully adjusted and focused.
2-pin Connecting socket on the end of a 110mm long lead.
Module body: 18mm long
Heat-sink : 17.8mm Diameter
Front fitting part : 13mm Diameter.
Driver : a Constant-Current Driver Module can be used with this Laser Diode Which will allow to run this laser from any voltage from 5v to 30v.
We recommend using our 230mA Switch-mode Current Limiter with these Laser modules.
More details about these current limiting modules can be found at http://ozcott.com/NomadTronics/product/mini-switch-mode-current-driver-limiter-modules/
Please note: All Laser Diodes are very sensitive devices. Exceeding the recommended driving current by as little as 15% can easily damage the device.
That’s why some form of current control is essential for Laser Diodes.
