Remember to short the leads with the PSU turned off before connecting the diode.



Dafuq? Am I missing something? OP is using an LM317 as a current regulator, so the reference voltage would be 1.25V then. If you're trying to calculate the lowest resistor value you can use you're doing it wrong.



V = 1.25V
I = ?
R = 1ohm

I = V/R = 1.25V/1ohm = 1.25A

I don't see anything wrong with his setup.
Can i try with a 400w 12V PSU ? connected to cc driver ofc?

Yes. You can use the 12V rail as the input to the driver.

Don't use it for long though, the driver will dissipate a lot of heat, more than your heat sink can probably handle continuously.

Ill see if the laser outputs any light, if so ill fix a better psu

thanks

this is funny. Something most seasoned members have drilled into new members heads, gets buried In the see of posts. there should be a sticky about not using 9v batts for anything over 100ma.

edit... just send it to a trusted member with regulated ps.

Something must be broken inside the diode, the voltage dont dissapear when the psu i turned off, is it ok to Ohm meter the Diode?

Still only 2,25V supplied to the diode :O I think that the VR is broken

Can you check the current delivered to the diode? That would be more informative to help troubleshoot the issue.

Yeah, sounds like your LM317 is dead. What's the voltage across the set resistor?

Yeahhh. Somethings not right if it's not 1.25V

A 1.5A rated LM317 should be fine.

Does it hurt taking the more expensive model, do i need to change the resistence?

Are you referring to the LM317HV? No. Its simply rated for a higher input voltage but its just the same.

So 12vdc Will be okay for a longer time then?

I would not set the voltage to max. Keep it under the max forward voltage of the diode. Around 4.8V will be more than sufficient to test it and set the current to zero. This will limit the surge potential. If set to max voltage the surge potential is very high and can LED the diode. After doing that power the unit off then short the leads. Connect the diode power on and slowly turn the current up.

If the supply is 12 Volts and the regulator is set up at 1 Amp CC ( 1.25 Ohm resistor ) and the diode drops around 4.7V - 4.8V at 1 amp

The resistor will drop 1.25V with a power dissipated of 1.25 Watts .

The regulator will drop the remanding 5.95 Volts and dissipate 5.95 Watts .

As long as the regulator is properly heat sinked and cooled it can be run no stop .
