Lasers

Our years of servicing industry has led us to design three basic configurations making it easy to find a laser which will be a good fit for your application. The “R” series is our most economical unit and features a wall wart style AC power supply, while the “B” series has a built in AC power supply and connects to power through a standard cord. Both will plug directly into a standard wall outlet. For low voltage applications, the “LV” series can accept a wide range of input voltages in DC and AC. Great for portable machines, or control voltage installations. All three configurations work well with any of our mounting hardware and are covered by an industry leading 24 month warranty. If you have questions about which unit is right for your application, feel free to give us a call, and we would be happy to help you find the right unit for the job.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why the LV Series?

The LV series has a switch mode converter built in which allows the use of low voltage AC or DC with no changes required to switch between sources. The inputs are not polarity sensitive; simply connect the BROWN and BLUE wires (typical wire coding Pin 1 and 3, if your wire colors vary) with either polarity from your source.

Why choose Red vs Green?

Many people inquire as to what the differences are between the red and green units, and why one would want to choose either way. The industry standard has been red lasers since the 70’s with the green wavelength being more difficult to achieve. With the advent of solid state lasers, this has changed as great strides have been achieved in reducing the complexity, while increasing the lifetimes and robustness in more harsh environments.

 

So, why choose one color or the other? The ~635nm (nanometer) wavelength works great in all applications, and indeed over the years these applications have run the gamut. What makes the green unique is that it falls into a wavelength (520nm) range that is approx. 20-30% more visible to the human eye. In applications that have a very high ambient light, the green may make the difference between visible or not. Another issue is hue. Some surfaces such as certain species of wood, as well as some sheet goods or fabric have a reddish hue in which the red laser light will become somewhat lost. The contrast of the green will be of great benefit in these applications. Often times it is necessary to have several laser lines side by side and a contrasting specific marker line in required, such as a fence line on a ripsaw in which one contrasting color, typically a green unit, will serve to make that distinction.

 

Also, in circumstances where the operator has some level of colorblindness, one or the other may be more visible to them due to the disparate sensitivity to the red and green wavelengths.

 

If you have any other questions regarding this topic, or help deciding either way, please feel free to ask and we would be happy to assist.

Are your lasers covered by a warranty?

Our products are covered by a 24 month limited warranty starting from the manufacturing date that covers any failures due to manufacturing defects. Simply ship us the unit, and we will address the issue and return it to you UPS 3day. We reserve the right to repair or replace as required to bring the unit back to full functioning order.

Why the R series?

This series is the most economical of our lasers, but as you would imagine each application has specific requirements for which a particular configuration may be best suited. While these units have gone into many varied installations including comparatively harsh duty environments, this unit works very well indoors and in stationary mounted applications.

Why the M12 configuration?

Some customers are connecting to a system that already has a 3-9vdc source available, and only require the laser unit itself. The M12 connector is an industry standard sensor connection that most electricians are familiar with and will often have on hand for typical maintenance.

Why the B series?

The B series is designed specifically for AC line voltage applications only. In its standard corded configuration, it has a 9’10” heavy chemical resistant industrial cord that can stand up to service in rough applications being supplied by a standard 120vac outlet.
