BEDFORD, N.H., 11 May 2016. Laser Components USA Inc. in Bedford, N.H., is introducing the rugged Flexpoint heavy-duty HD laser module for targeting, marking, or positioning tasks in harsh operating conditions.

The Flexpoint laser comes in a housing that can withstand conditions on land, in water, or in the air, company officials say. The lasers meet IP67, can withstand the effects of sandstorms, and can go into one-meter-deep water for as long as 30 minutes.

Flexpoint HD modules are available as dot lasers, line lasers with fan angles from 10 to 100 degrees, or cross-hair lasers with fan angles from 2 to 60 degrees. They emit at 520 or 635 nanometers.

The 520-nanometer light spectrum is visible in daylight. The major advantage of green light is apparent on black surfaces such as car tires, on which red laser light largely is absorbed. Green light stands out brightly and clearly at eye-safe power.

The focusing settings enable optimal adjustment for many distances to stand out clearly against the background.

The laser has a waterproof M12 power connection and a voltage supply as strong as 30 volts DC. For independent operation, the module can connect to a rechargeable battery.
