BEA Lasers has announced the availability of its newly designed GPL line of lasers for use in light industrial applications. The GPL series laser diode module system is best suited for general-purpose, medium-duty applications.
Intended for education, light assembly, simple alignment, positioning and levelling jobs, the system includes a 1/2” OD NPT threaded housing with mounting hardware and plug-in USB type power supply. Its cable length is 36” and available patterns include green or red dot, or green or red line, with a nominal focal length of 17”.
This module may be powered by the USB port on any computer as an option. The housing is CRS and plated with a clear zinc oxide. This product is not intended for wet, high-vibration or harsh-environment applications.
BEA lasers are used with construction tools and equipment; automobile seats, door panels and tires; robotics; machine tools; garment alignment and in many other industries, including food and beverage. General laser applications include alignment, positioning, levelling, drilling, event detection, edge detection, security, cutting, vision systems, metrology, bar code readers, education, robotic control and laboratory or test operations.
