    hey larry-

    how about poppin in your higher quality dichros. i think you will notice a big difference with that. also, how are the mounts for the dichros? is the alignment locked down well on this?? i have heard nightmares about the alignment on the pre-fab units after shipment.

    i dont like the spec on the red. .71W is WELLLL below where it should be. is this just a simple current adjustment? or is there a problem with the diode?

    do these have the capabilities of being switched to CW?? (just the raw modules). i would be interested in seeing if you get a different reading on the laser if it is running CW and NOT modulated at all. (whether a 5V signal is applied or not).

    i have noticed that with some lasers i test that even applying a 5V signal *SOMETIMES* still does not provide 100% maximum output. but in CW mode (no modulation) it lases like a bat outta hell!

    i really think with some new dichros and your new scanner mirrors you will have a BAD ASS laser system on your hands! although i am not a big fan of pre-fab units, it seems like your over all happy. and thats all that counts!

    get us some pics by the way!! we NEEEEEEED our picture fix!!! (especially of that 642!!)

    HI

    This is the Swisslas 1 watt... this pix does not show it finished . Its a very nicely built unit.
    I don't see any claim by Swisslas that this is a 1.2 watt job ??
    That must come form the people selling it.

    Its very nice but it ain't cheap !! You would have to love your bank manager to have a machine full of these beuties.

    Cheers

    whoa, is that 6 individual diodes combined? If so, by what means?

    Yes, they use knife edge mirrors and PBS cubes.

    Default UPDATE

    Well I just got back from a trip to find that after a a little communication they send me a new Red Module.

    They offered to pay to have it shipped back and then express it back to me but I needed it for a NYE show and was a bit concerned about it getting stuck in customs so I opted for them to send the module.

    It was pretty easy to replace and now I am seeing 1.26W from it. So it is just over Guaranteed power of 1.2W

    I am very happy with the customer service I have received so far on this. I understand that things happen to products especially when shipped overseas.

    I attached a few picture while I have it open so you can all see the layout. When I get it back together I will try to get some action shots.

    I ordered som new dichros from Amanda at One Stop Laser Shop (She is Awesome if you ever need anything, I have worked with her for years on everything from old Melles unit repairs to scanners and optics)

    I am going to put it all together with original optics first and take some measurements but I think you are right as Amanda said they were seeing less than a 1% drop with their optics.

    Not sure about the CW on these Does not seem to be available just by looking but I may ask. I have seen the same results you mention with measurements on my 5W green though .

    Will send more ASAP
