ProPhotonix launched its Prodigii digital laser module at Photonics West.
The laser module has been designed to withstand even the most challenging of operating environments. It can be controlled and monitored through a digital RS485 communication interface providing laser output control and performance monitoring. Integral thermal management ensures excellent output wavelength stabilisation with enhanced diode life due to superior output power control and the ability to maintain consistent power levels. Prodigii incorporates a fast-start operation and allows for continuous performance monitoring.
The new digital laser platform is available in a range of wavelengths from 405 to 850nm. Output powers of up 500mW continuous wave or 1W pulsed are available. The Prodigii laser module can be configured as a uniform line generator for 3D measurement applications or with a focused elliptical output beam for analytical, spectroscopic or high-precision alignment applications. The platform is ideally suited to high-speed automated inspection, 3D measurement especially in high ambient light or temperature conditions, chemical, and biomedical analysis.
