The ZM12 range of small industrial laser modules from Z-LASER (Freiburg, Germany) is designed for industrial manufacturing processes such as laser marking or machine vision applications where superior quality and performance are elementary. With IP67 protection class it is resistant to water and dust. The basic model with optic head has a length of 85 mm and a diameter of 15 mm. With the external focus mechanism it is easy to manually change the beam shape. As a laser model with integrated cable (ZM12DM5) the laser is only 63 mm long. The laser configuration is available with red and infrared wavelengths, optical output up to 100 mW as well as modulation option up to 100 kHz. These properties allow an easy synchronization with a camera system or to setup the laser intensity via PWM (pulse-width modulation).
