Meduza -- I seem to recall from long ago a short "rifle" in starwars. It was white and used by the bad guys. The output end was a slot not a hole.
Maybe I have the wrong movie :-?
Oh Well -- this may be my creation that works

NightStick --

Now that mine is compressed into a small space with good grounding, I'm reading 9.8 to 10.3 Amps draw. Now that's about right for power input - I seem to have limited the RF cloud affecting the meter.

I carried it out today to impress my friends

Mike

I did too like yours! I just like the portability more than the bigger box look.
Thats why I'm gonna try to use a clear tube for mine.

I already broke the bank, But this robot I'm building is gonna cost me 500 easy. It will be sweet when I get it going though, I'm still trying to decide what kind of laser i wanna put on it. I have some 20w diode bars also. Talk about home defense, this thing is gonna be awesome...

20W of IR laser on an experimental robot. What could go wrong?

Default Re: RF excited CO2 lasers

Well, I'll be using many safeguards, the power to the laser will only be turned on by a 6 digit pin on a keypad not interfaced with the rpv's computer. (this circuit is built and works great!) Also, the lasers power is in parallel with a loud warning alarm. There will be no one in the room when it is operational, all control will be through wlan with wpa2 enabled and remotely piloted with video returned through the wlan. If control is lost, or no packets are received within 1.5 seconds, the computer in the rpv will disconnect power from all motors and the laser, thus requiring the 6 digit pin code to be re entered to activate the laser again. 8-)

Be careful with that robot toy --- The CO2 laser will start almost anything on fire in a second. Like a firearm, always know the target.
