For the most advanced and professional laser users we offer a special laser extension module.
That module has:
– Temperature sensor
– Voltmeter and ammeter
– Additional heatsink TEC cooling module
– Arduino frequency and power adjustment module
– Safety on/off button
Temperature sensor shows the real laser temperature on a diode.
We recommend to operate the laser and check the temperature – it should not be more than 70C.
Voltmeter and ammeter shows the current laser diode power consumption.
This information can help you to understand on which power does the laser work.
For example, if the max is 5V 5.5A and current power consumption is 4V 3A – then it means that the laser works in about 35-45% of its max power.
Additional heatsink TEC cooling module is installed on a heatsink. This keeps the diode cooler and increases efficiency and power output.
Arduino frequency and power adjustment module allows to change duty ratio for the laser as well as the frequency of the laser on / off period.
Duty ratio is a parameter for laser power while the frequency is more used when you want to get a flickering effect.
Flickering effect is more equal to the impulse mode. While you do impulse – the laser can do more power output.
Safety button is a useful feature when you need to turn off the laser.
