Laser Diode Modules

Share this on social media:

The Optoelectronics Company, a manufacturer of innovative optoelectronic components and distributor of OCLARO (Opnext) laser diodes and Panasonic glass lenses, has launched a new range of laser diode modules.

With a diameter of only 11 mm, the modules are ergonomically designed with a small form factor for integration into a wide range of applications such as industrial and medical alignment, low level laser therapy, inspection and sensing where a tiny package is essential to fit into very compact spaces.

This new range of laser diode modules combines a high-performance OCLARO (Opnext) laser diode with externally adjustable optics, a Panasonic aspherical glass lens, sophisticated electronics and rugged modular anodised aluminium housing to provide a reliable, energy-efficient and precise laser source for OEMs, end users and systems integrators. A key feature is the brass lens holder which enables smoother, more accurate focussing by using a finer pitched thread.

The CW lasers produce a high-quality elliptical beam at five visible and infrared lasing wavelengths, (635 nm, 639 nm, 660 nm, 830 nm and 852 nm), and offer a combination of low noise and output stability with powers of up to 75 mW.  For easy identification they can be supplied with coloured end caps or customer specified engraving on the rear sleeve. Mechanical dimensions are 11 mm diameter x 49 mm length.

With an operating voltage of 3 - 6V DC and a broad ambient temperature operating range from -10 degrees C to +50 degrees C, the modules are also static, surge and reverse-polarity protected and RoHS compliant. Electrical connections are made via 300 mm external flying leads.
