Laser modules have to fulfill special requirements in industrial image processing. Line lasers with a homogeneous power distribution are generally used in metrology, but high-power laser designs and special housings are also in demand in industrial image processing.
High power lasers for machine vision applications: Use LASER COMPONENTS' FLEXPOINT® MVgiga series.
Machine Vision Lasers
The FLEXPOINT® MVgiga laser is powerful. The maximum output power of this laser module is 400 mW at a typical wavelength of 638 nm.
Created for industrial image processing, this laser generates bright measurement lines even at short exposure times with a camera which allow the image produced to be precisely analyzed.
The line laser can be focussed without changing the line. The lasers can be operated at 4.5-30 VDC without changing the brightness of the line in this range. Optionally, the power can also be adjusted using a potentiometer or a control wire.
Lasers at 660 nm and an output power of up to 1 W will be available soon.
