Laser components has released a low cost laser module that can operate in high temperatures and produce a small laser spot which is aligned with the mechanical axis of the housing.
The LC-LMD-650-01-T60-AX is similar to the company‘s standard LC-LMD series in the terms of its 1mW optical power and 3.3VDC operating voltage. This specific low cost laser module can also operate in temperatures up to 60°C, which is aligned within a tolerance of <0.1° of the module‘s mechanical axis. The laser is delivered with 50mm trailing leads, removing the need to solder pins or additional wiring to the back of the module.
Common applications include pointing, positioning, and basic alignment tasks where a small module which requires a compact power supply is required.
