Laser projection for positioning applications

The high quality laser sources - laser modules and laser projectors - are always adjusted and designed according to the specifications and needs of the customers.

Lasers are used as structured light source in lots of imaging systems. This form of light source 3-dimensional contours of moving and static objects can be recorded. Depending on the object under test, micro and macro lines or various patterns (multi lines, dot matrices, crosses, circles, etc.) are used.

At VISION 2009 Z-Laser presented the new ZM18 product family - Advanced lasers for the vision, measurement, scientific, medical, and alignment industries.

The lasers are available with wavelengths of red, green, blue, and IR with output powers up to 200 mW.

With these new lasers, the user no longer has to settle for a particular operating voltage as they feature 5-30 VDC operation, with voltage, spike, and reverse polarity protection. At any voltage within this range, the lasers can be modulated both analog and digitally simultaneously, at frequencies of up to 20 MHz. This allows the laser intensity to be varied while also enabling the laser to be synchronized with a camera or other equipment. Furthermore, the sophisticated electronics feature a built-in micro controller and serial interface facilitating the logging of temperature, operating hours, etc.

The laser provides with a simple, external hand focusing mechanism and the thread-mounted barrel enables an easy and versatile mounting. Furthermore, the laser provides an LED laser operation and pre-failure indicator ensuring you are aware the laser is in operation and replacement lasers can be installed prior to the machinery equipment failing. Rated at IP67, the laser is fully waterproof.
