Default FS: CNI GLP 593.5nm (594) pointer, rated for 3-5mW.

I purchased this from another forum member about a month ago, and the timing was strange such that I ended up with two of these (the other one I purchased directly from Laser Glow). So technically, I have both a Rigel and a GLP. They're identical though - at least as far as I can tell.

Anyway, I just won a bid on an eBay that I really wasn't expecting to win. I got a great deal, but I wasn't expecting the $1000+ expenditure to pop up (thought I'd be outbid, and the item would go for $1500+). So I need to sell some items in the next 3 or 4 days.





I can't actually LPM this guy, it doesn't register on my LaserBee.
EDIT: Maybe it does ?!? See below.
Nor does my LaserGlow version of the same pointer (which according to LG was cherry picked to do 9mW peak). The LG seems a bit brighter, but it's pretty darn close - it's hard to tell them apart. I would assume this CNI to be somewhere around 3 to 5mW. If you have a more sensitive LPM, you'll be able to figure this out. I'm not going to guarantee any particular reading.



Ok, just tried the LPMing again. Similar result. This has GOT to be IR.


Price is $200 + shipping.

Photos to come later this evening.

Default Re: FS: CNI GLP 593.5nm (594) pointer, rated for 3-5mW

From my experience... these CNI units are usually around ~2mW.

Still not too bad of a price, good luck with your sale.

I would be surprised if this was just 2mW, but I don't know.

At any rate, welcome to the forum! What's your previous experience with CNI units? Fill us in. Your signature is empty.

Try measuring the laser by adding the output of another laser to get it to register above 5mW.

Laserbee LPMs still have 1mW resolution, right? If so, then the Rigel & GLP should be measurable if you add in another laser to bring it above the LPM's min.

I've had two of these and both of them were at (or just below) 2mW. I had assumed that yours was probably the same unit. Unfortunately though, 2mW vs. 5mW of this wavelength is quite noticeable. It can be a disappointment to some after spending full retail. Just wanted to mention that...

It is entirely possible that yours may be "overspec" but I'm just going by what I've seen personally.

lol ... I kind of see the laundry list of wavelengths as somewhat boastful... that's the only reason why "I" chose not to do so.


Again, I think this is a nice price for someone who may be wanting to add that exotic wavelength to their collection, and wish you the best in your sale.

No, I don't think mine is overspec. I think it's probably right on spec.
EDIT: I should be careful in my wording. I really don't know if it is, and since I'm not guaranteeing this, I need to be cautious of what I say.

I bought it from another member, not from CNI myself. So I'm going by what this other member told me. But it was from a reputable member that I wouldn't doubt. He said the GLP was rated for 3mW to 5mW. The spec sheet you linked me to is for a GLP with an upper rated limit of 2mW. So my guess is that you purchased a 2mW GLP.

I think this one is probably right around on-spec, which for this guy (as far as I am aware) is 3mW to 5mW.

That said, now that I think about it, this was probably a LaserGlow purchase, not a CNI. I don't think CNI ever gives ranges, that sounds more like LaserGlow to me. I'll try to clarify with the previous owner, unless it sells first.

Pictures forthcoming.

Photos added.
And.... LPM added.

Ok, now I'm REALLY confused. I was pretty certain that I had tried to LPM this before, and couldn't get it (or my LG) to register. Now I just tried it on my LaserBee, and it LPM'd at 25mW.

I'm wondering if maybe it was my Ophir that I couldn't get it to register on.

Side note: I'm really skeptical that this reading could be legit. How could a GLP 593.5 be 25mW? Are they not IR filtered or something?
EDIT: This has GOT to be unfiltered. There is NO WAY that the 25mW reading isn't largely IR. Not to shoot anyone's hopes in the heart here, but I'm still sticking with my presumption that this guy is around 3 to 5mW.

OK I'll take the 25mW one for $225.00 and shipping, but it has to put out 25mW now

Hope you got something good for 1K

Haha, well, it IS putting out 25mW!

But I'd bet my life on the fact that most of that is IR.

Anyway, first taker for $250 + shipping, gets it. I think that's a good price.

I wasn't sure which LPM you used to produce the Graphs in the
first post... The name of the copyrighted Software seems to have
been cropped off.

When using your LaserBee 2.5W USB it is important that..

1) you let the Thermopile head acclimate to the test area
temperature.. 30 to 60 Minutes

2) you DO NOT touch the Thermopile head with your fingers
at any time after it has acclimated to the test area.

3) you wait an additional 30-60 Seconds after the readings
come back down to zero after taking a reading before taking
another reading.

This is even more important when measuring below 50mW...

It's the LaserBee 2.5W USB. Unfortunately, I'm always left taking screenshots (which sometimes crop weirdly depending on the photo software I use, and how careful I am) because the software inexplicably doesn't include an output-to-image-file option.

RE: 1-3, yep, I know all of the above Though re: 3, sometimes it doesn't come back down to zero, but rests at 2 or 3 mw.

The high readings here are IR. Nothing mysterious to it.

Sorry to disagree with you but you are wrong.....

The software does have a Save Image As... option and it even
shows the name of the File/Laser.

Simply choose to save your session by giving a file name and
pressing [Start] to choose the location of the saved file.
Once your session has ended click on View/Chart and load the
file you just saved then right click to Save Image As... and
choose the format you want to save it in.

You just needed to ask...

That may be due to the extended time it takes to settle and zero
it's self after numerous readings.
If it does not hit Zero after a few minutes then restart the LaserBee
2.5W USB and Software to see if that fixes it. I have not yet heard
that the LaserBee 2.5W USB stays above zero after waiting a few
minutes to let it re-acclimate.

Default Re: FS: CNI GLP 593.5nm (594) pointer, rated for 3-5mW.

Jerry - brilliant!

You know that we struggled over this in another thread, and nobody knew of an easier approach than either:
1) Screenshotting.
2) Printing to PDF, and exporting PDF to an image.

This is going to save me so much hassle in the future

I must have missed that Thread or I would have chimed in.
That feature was added when our new EagleEye Software
was launched. I was fed up of doing Screen Shots as well...

Yes - that's honestly really awesome to know. I think a lot of people don't realize it's that easy.

To see the Real output, Find a VERY stable laser (500-100mW 650nm), when you get The Stable Reading, put the 594nm Beam in the Sensor. Then: (XXmW-100mW=The 594nm Output)
