The VM (Versatile Module) from Global Laser provides a high quality and cost effective OEM solution to a wide range of applications including machine version, inspection, alignment and positioning.
The VM is 11mm in diameter and features diode powers up to 5mW in both green (515nm) and red (635, 650nm) wavelengths. The green model emits light that appears more than 2X brighter to the human eye than the equivalent power in 635nm. As a result, you’re more likely to see these projections against dark materials, in high ambient light levels, or from long distances.
The module housing is electrically isolated, and the internal electronics benefit from reverse polarity protection. An A/R coated user adjustable collimating lens produces an elliptical output beam which can by focused to produce fine spots. An optional TTL enable input is also available.
Further versatility is provided by the wide range of external optics which simply screw into the front of the laser diode module, allowing the user to quickly and efficiently switch from one projection to another. The range of external optics includes gaussian lines, homogeneous lines, crosses and a wide range of diffractive patterns. Please see our projections lenses page for further details.
