    Is my diode dead?

    Ok so recently i have tried building a new 2W laser using the M140 diode from dtr's laser shop. Even though i killed 1 driver and had to order a replacement, it seems that mi diode may have died as well :( The only sad part about it is that i lost a lot of money prob over 70 USD without...

    What kind of a driver is this and will it work for this laser?

    Ok so i was going through the SurvivalLaser website and found that they have a new type of driver (linked bellow). Its current adjustable and has an efficiency of ~90% my question is can i use it with the M140 diode and set it to 2A of current so its more powerful. Also would the power be...

    Is a heatsink needed for a 1.8A driver?

    This is the driver i want to use for my M-type M140 diode(link bellow). my question is do i need a heatsink? since i know i gotr the 1.5A version and it may have overheated or possibly from physical damage. But thats beside the point. Does this driver need a heatsink?? Thanks a lot for any help...

    Is a heatsink needed for a 1.8 driver?

    Ok so i've started working on a new laser. Its a 445nm using the M-type m140 Module. However the problem is i dont know how many amps my driver should be and what is the maximum i can do without heatsinking the driver. I want to go for a 1.8 A driver as shown below however am not sure if it...

    Will this aluminum heatsink be enough?

    Ok so im making a 2 W laer and have stumbled on a potential problem. I got a 1.5A driver and a M140 M-Type 2W laser. I also happen to have a survival laser C6 host assembly and was planning on using that however will this heat sink be enough fot the diode? HeatSink: Black Anodized Aluminum Heat...

    Heatsink for diode and driver?

    Im fairly new to building lasers but from my past threads i learned that i need a heatsink for drivers. Are there any hosts in perticular for the following diode and driver? If not can i make a heat sink for them? DRIVER: 1 8A x Drive V6 Laser Driver M140 PLTB450 PLTB450B NDG700 NDG7475 | eBay...

    Do i need to attach a heatsink to the driver?

    Im planning on buying this laser driver : 1 8A x Drive V6 Laser Driver M140 PLTB450 PLTB450B NDG700 NDG7475 | eBay It states that bare bones it will run for 90 seconds and in order to make it continuous i need to add a heat sink. Does this mean a heatsink to the diode or the driver?
