Default laser in sunlight

Hello, for my work i need a pointer that makes a point you can see at about 20-30 meters on a rough surface (a railroad); it is necessary you can see it also at very good weather with a lot of sunshine.
If i need a high capacity, how about safety.
I heard in the Netherlands 1 mW is the maximum capcity which is allowed. That looks very low to me. I could not find the official data, maybe you know?
I use it for my work, so the price is not very important if the laser works good!

Thanks a lot,

Teun *

Don't worry too much about the official regulations because they aren't strictly enforced and they are ridiculous in the first place.

Well if you're not gonna pay for it you can get a nova x-series laser.Faster shipping and more reliabilty than DX. http://www.novalasers.com/NOVAstore/...p?idCategory=3
The X-25 should do but you can get the X-50 to make sure.And as for safety you should be very very VERY careful not to let the beam shine into someone's eyes.Also watch out for reflections.

Very bright, far more reliable than the True 30. You just cannot miss the dot, even in broad daylight.

As far as I can tell, you will start shooting into $140 USD and upwards for lasers more powerful and reliable than this.

if price doesn't matter go for a NOVA laser. http://www.novalasers.com
and if you want to see the dot from a good distance away go for anything above 50mW

I'm going to second or third or fourth or whatever the Novalaser over a DX or Kaidomain laser, as it'll be guaranteed to output what you need, get there faster, and have better warranty and customer service to back it up.

And cost ten times more too.

For the price of a single Nova 50mW (X-50 @ $119) I can get 4 KD lasers + batteries. The chance of a failure is quartered - and it's not very unreliable to begin with (although, if it MUST be a pen laser then Nova wins hands down).

He doesn't have to pay for it himself, it's for work, so price is not that big of an issue :

In that case it would be a RPL-400 + free 5mW (you know the whole 200K for me and you and we pay the other dude to do it thing) ;D
