Taking a break

 We're taking a break moving shop and hope to be back soon. We hope to start shipping orders in Nov 2018. 

You have some frickin' sharks at your lair, and you're thinking "it would be really great if I could attach some lasers to them" and then you see these little laser diode modules: what great timing! These encapsulated laser diodes are Class IIIa 5mW, with a 650nm red wavelength. They can be driven from 2.8V to 5.2V so they're great for your embedded electronics project.

This particular module has a lens attached that will turn the dot into a cross. This makes it particularly good for laser-vision guidance, targeting, and more! Simply connect power to the red and black wires and you will be lasing in no time.

The cross has a beam spread of approximately 60° in both directions. So from a distance of 5cm, the cross is 5cm tall and 5cm wide. The cross ends have a sharp cutoff so the shape is very clearly defined.

Please note: this is not a laser pointer. It's a diode with integrated driver. You still need a 3 to 5VDC power supply. These diodes are 5mW output, and have a safety label marked on them. For more information on laser safety and ratings check out the Wikipedia page
