Default Laser printer module

Hi, i found something like this in my old laser printer, i test it with an IR diode and it seems to work... but at 150mA only burns plastic tape

any suggestions?

Printer diodes aren't usually very high powered... I'm actually a bit surprised you could get it to burn tape. Usually people are more interested in the optics and the hexagonal mirror in printers.

I suppose if you want an IR diode to play around with it'll be useful, but I'm pretty sure the diodes in CD burners are higher powered.

nono, the laser diode is from a 32x cd burner

the optic is from a laser printer!

whats is the max current for an IR diode from a 32x or 52x cd burner?.. at 150mA burns plastic tape.. but in seeeverals seconds

You said that this was from your "old laser printer". Then you say 32x CD burner. The pictures provided don't show what I recognize as a CD burner.

What do you have and show?

Mike

I see an edit -- now I'm confused as to what is happening here.

sorry, i dont speak english very well :S

The optic is from a laser printer (similar to the pic)
the IR diode is from a Cd burner (32x).

one more question... can i use a red dvd diode with my optics??

You should be able to, but if it is only a dvd reader you won't get much output.... maybe 5-10mW, and it won't burn anything exept your retina. A dvd burners' diode would be better, and you could cut black tape and light matches.

You would be better off just forgetting those optics and stuff that you posted about, and go buy a dilda from DX. It would be less than $40.00 and it is already built for you.
