Z-Laser ZQ1 High Power Machine Vision Laser Diode Modules feature robotic aligned optics for even-intensity line generation with up to 1700mW of output power. IP67 and DIN EN 61373:2011-04 rated for shock and vibration, these laser diode modules are ideal for harsh environment applications. An integrated active temperature management system ensures these lasers operate within their optimal temperature range, resulting consistent performance independent of environmental temperature conditions. Z-Laser ZQ1 High Power Machine Vision Laser Diode Modules are ideal for demanding measurement applications in machine vision, road and rail inspection, biomedical, and 3D measurement. A focus ring provides tool-free, manual adjustment of the working distance to obtain the optimal line thickness for application requirements, while TTL modulation, analog modulation, and serial interface communication provide additional flexibility and functionality.
Red wavelengths (660nm) are most commonly used in machine vision applications, as the quantum efficiency of most camera sensors are optimized for this wavelength range. Blue wavelengths (450nm) are most commonly used with semi-transparent surfaces or with highly reflective surfaces such as polished metal and solder joints, or to create visual contrast on glowing materials such as molten steel. NIR wavelengths (808nm) are often used in outdoor environments, where strong ambient light can create contrast issues for camera sensors.
