    Default Affordable scanfail....??

    Ok, so as the Gento group buy thread is over a year old now, and there's probably quite a few members joined since then, what are the options today for affordable scanfail?

    Is anyone retailing Gento's device (Mccarrott?)?
    What is the Guido's device dave mentioned in an earlier thread?


    Again, i think the keyword here is affordable and yet easy to setup/maintain

    cheers

    Thanks Dave, how do you find those boards in practise? Can you still use targetted beams with them, or will it blank the lasers? Any other info you could impart?

    Dave, I can't seem to find the scanfail unit on medialas website. And being a US fellow, trying to understand mylaserpage.de to order the scanfail is a bit of a trick. I mean... I can add it to my cart, but thats about as far as I can get with out being able to read German.

    Anybody have any other suggestions?

    That works great til you get to the shop. The shop for some reason cant be translated.

    Hi,

    if you are interested in the Safetys just send me an E-Mail to gj@mylaserpage.de

    This Time the Page is only in German Language....so just contact me by Mail. No Problem.

    One Problem are the Shipping-Costs...nearly the same Price as one Safety itself :-(

    About the Safety:
    - 5V DC Powersupply, < 150mA
    - 4 Optocoupled Modulation in/outs
    - Feedback Input max +/- 10V DC
    - Response Time <20ms
    - One Zone, invertable by Jumper, full Width, Height is adjustable by adj. Resistor
    - Interlock-Inputs for Keyswitch, ILDA-Interlock, Emergency-Stop
    - Jumper to disable Safety for Laseradjustment

    Other Problem is the bad exchange Rate from US$ to Euro. This Time 1 Euro is about 1.38 so the
    Safety 89 Euro = 122$ If there is someone else interested and you buy >= 25 pcs. the Price will be
    90$ e.a.
    Greetings
    Guido

    You're using the wrong shipping company if its costing 90 euros to ship 1 circuit board from Germany to the rest of the world.

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.
