    Default Making a FC laser

    Hi All,

    I want to make three lasers diodes with drivers, Red Blue and Green, all with the same body size ideally and having threads on the the end to fit a lens holder. I requirew a short focal length of a few mm (G2 focal length) then finally I want to attached a fiber using a FC connector. (The FC adapter I think I will have to get machined)

    There are off the shelf FC lasers but the are not cheap and as I need three I am trying to save money.

    Any advice, links to cheap off the shelf FC lasers, suppliers of parts would be very welcome.

    Thanks Steve

    Hello!
    I can suggest our ColorDRIVE one (if needed without TEC). They are only 55,50 and have a lot of featuers (Onboard DCDC for the diode, differential input, enable functions,... and a modulations frequency of 1,2MHz analogue!)
    https://www.live-lasersystems.at/d/colordrive-one.php
    We can offer also diode sleeves with collimators where you can mount the diodes and easy collimate them:
    https://www.live-lasersystems.at/d/sparrow-mechanical---optical-accessories.html
    There we have also small OEM modules where you can mount the dioes (with back PCB) and for example building a small mount to add for fibre coupling.
    If you want a OEM build without soldering, or just want to easy build a experimental setup, we have a lot different, cheap addons, like a "Control Box" - with this no external modulation signal is needed, but you can use it too and switch between "on with power regulation via potentiometer" or external modulation input.

    Hi Phillip

    Thanks for the reply but I am not looking for any complicated drivers, just the simple constand current PCB and 5v input, I will be PWM driving the GND to achive control.

    So, small Red, Green and Blue doides with power drivers, lens holder + lens. ideally FC connector but if not I will make these. something like the ebay picture attached. cheers (the reason I don't use this is the emails requesting information arnt forthcoming and I am not sure I can get Red+Blue+Green modules)

    Thx

    Hi Phillip,
    Just checked out your webpages and noticed the Eye Magic EMS-8000 galvos in your projectors. But, don't see them listed as one of your products for purchase, separately. Checked Eye Magic's webpage and didn't find any pricing information. Considering the current shortages from ScannerMax, these galvos must be highly coveted by serious laserists.
    Are they currently available and, if so, @ what price?
    Thanks

    Hello!
    These are rated on 60kpps and come with digital amps.
    The EMS8000 are 1190/Set (5 and 6.5mm apertures) and are avaiable.
    Yes, we havent added them on our homepage yet, there where not much requests ...

    Hi!
    I stopped to talking to anybody about Scannermax and their business strategy. I think the most people know how its going and what it means to the business and our global market which has more than just one Showlaser supplier.

    We had also DT50 scanners a lot and only problems with, becouse the quality on the feedbacksensors get worse (I think a production problem), so the most of the DT50 we used got defective.
    We changed now to use only EyeMagic scanners and nothing else anymore. The quality is very good, the price is reasonable and the service is very good.

    Thank you for the info. So far, so good with my current pair of DT-40s. My 3rd projector will have EMS8000's.
