More info


These encapsulated laser diodes are Class IIIa 5mW, with a 650nm red wavelength. They can be driven from 2.8V to 5.2V so theyre great for your embedded electronics project.

This particular laser diode has a lens attached to turn the dot into a line. We think this would be particularly good for making a 3D scanner, but there are probably many other cool uses! Simply connect power to the red and black wires and you will be lasing in no time.

The line beam spread is 120° - so from a distance of 5cm the line is 15cm long. The line fades out and doesnt have a sharp cut-off.

Please note: this is not a laser pointer. Its 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
