To prevent lasers from sustaining damage as a result of their environment, Laser Components (Bedford, NH) places them in housings that can withstand all conditions. Thanks to the IP67 protective class, the FLEXPOINT® HD laser modules not only withstand sandstorms, they can also go into one-meter-deep water for up to thirty minutes. Because they are so robust, they are called heavy-duty – HD laser modules.

FLEXPOINT® HD modules are available as dot lasers, line lasers with fan angles from 10° to 100°, or cross-hair lasers with fan angles from 2° to 60°. For targeting, marking, or positioning tasks in absolutely any conceivable environment, they emit at 520 nm or 635 nm. 520 nm is highly visible in daylight. The major advantage of green light is apparent on black surfaces where red laser light is largely absorbed. Green light stands out brightly and clearly — all at a power that is classified as eye safe.

Both a waterproof M12 power connection and a voltage supply of up to 30 VDC are part of the FLEXPOINT® HD package. For independent operation, the module can also be connected to a rechargeable battery.
