BEA Lasers introduced Flat Pack Laser (FPL) alignment modules. The module package includes the laser diode and its housing, a mounting base and a separate power supply. The 20-mm-high profile is good for mounting in size constrained applications. The base is 30 mm square, and the laser housing is 18 mm by 18 mm; with the extended laser unit, the overall length is 45 mm. Standard packaging includes a choice of <5mW red or green laser output and a line or dot optic. The modules are suitable for alignment applications, such as in drilling, counting, positioning and edge detection.
