Lens for extreme environments
BEA Lasers, Elk Grove Village, Ill., introduced a new lens for use with its MIL Series Lasers.
The E²L Extreme Environment Lens incorporates a quartz glass lens into the end ferrule, providing resistance to harsh or extreme environmental conditions, such as welding arc flash, abrasives, dust, coolant and more.
The MIL Series laser diode modules utilize a low profile 3/8-inch rugged laser housing, fitted with a M12 connector, a 2-meter long PVC jacketed cable and an integrated power supply. An optional sensor-style bracket, or multi-adjustable “LB” bracket, completes the laser system. The MIL Series laser diode modules are offered with standard 520nm (green) or standard 635nm (red), with 1mW or 5mW output power. Dot, line or cross-hair patterns are offered as standard.
The MIL Compact is a low-profile laser diode module that occupies 1.5 inches of space, a smaller profile then other lasers intended for industrial applications.
The MIL RA and MIL Compact Series Laser modules are typically used for alignment and leveling applications for counting, machine vision, edge detection, paper web, riveting and water jet cutting alignment, among others.
