    Hi -

    We'll close it and land at the final price one we hit 20 or so... Given the amount of people who have been asking this shouldn't be too difficult I wouldn't think. =) But the sooner we get there the sooner we can close.

    I would be down for 4 sets if they had mirrors for a 6-7mm aperture.

    I purchased 506 set (4mm aperture mirror) several months ago from Pangolin, but still waiting for Pangolin amps . So I'm going with PT-A40 until have "official" amps for 506...
    However could you sell me one AMP unit+cables? it looks really nice
    thanks

    My name is Adam, I'm the general manager at X-Laser and can answer a few of the more technical questions that Dan doesn't know off the top of his head.

    These units are in stock and ready to go, the day the group buy is done we can ship out of Maryland.
    PSU is actually +12VDC only, recommended 5A
    As for the cable length, you can try it but we do not guarantee it. We'd be happy to include the crimp connectors and housings to make your own 33" cable set if you'd like.

    Here's a quick picture for anyone wondering the size of the system:

    Included in each set is a compact 506 4mm aperture set, dual axis driver with heat spreader, 2 cables and a piece of laser cut kapton film with thermal transfer coating.

    Solidworks files are available.

    I would be interested in 1 amp plus cables. I already have a 506 being driven by DT40 amps.

    I might be in for a set. What's the performance of this configuration?

    Hi all -

    Here are some quick answers:

    The K spec is rather nebulous, but we would fairly peg it at a solid 30k @ 8, and we continue to see really good linearity even a ways above that.

    At this moment, we are going to focus on the complete sets. I see no reason why we wouldn't make the amps available in the future, but that would have to be under a different cost structure that would have to be worked out when we have more information.

    As for mirror size, it is what it is. The sets that we have all have the 4mm aperture.

    Thanks!

    A few tech questions:
    - Are you internally generating -12V?
    - What input does it accept? +/-5V?
    - Do you have a separate 1 channel version?
    Thanks!

    The -12V is generated on the board, no need for a separate -12V PSU.
    The signal input is +/-10V
    We do not offer a single channel version

    I also got a few PMs requesting layout information, so please see the attached picture if interested.

    I have a few of these X-Laser amps we use for internal testing of Compact 506 scanners we supply to X-Laser. Very easy to set up- I built a test projector around one, and they drive the scanners nicely, even with the larger 4mm mirrors which have a higher inertia. Good deal for those wanting to try out the 506 scanners.

    Adam, I'm guessing the sets for sale are the micromatch connector version, versus the Mini-CT?
