Default Meredith Glass Module as heatsink?

Hi, sorry if this has been covered before but how good are the heatsink properties of the aluminium meredith enclosure? In your collective opinions would I need more heatsinking than that for a red 22x open can and a PHR-803T? I've got two and those are the lasers I am intending to put in them! It would be a shame to get these up and running just to have em burn themselves out.

Default Re: Meredith Glass Module as heatsink?

The 803t doesn't require much heatsinking and I'm sure a merideth module with its adapter should be enough heatsinking for reasonable length burns (1-2 min)...
Long open cans on the other hand generate a lot of heat, I'm guessing a merideth module won't be enough unless you plan on only running it for something like 20 seconds at a time.

Cheers for the reply, I think I'll go ahead and put the 803 into the module. Maybe get some thermal paste and stick the 22x red into the other one, hopefully that'll stop it from burning out!
