Continuing on with Moh's work! Here is how I harvest my 6x SF-AW210 diodes!



BTW at the end I'm pulling the two sides away from each other then I slightly twist it and snaps right off! Also remember to do this over some soft material like a scrunched shirt, so you don't drop the diode on the floor :D

Nice video. but the SF-AW210 isn't a 6x blu ray laser diode.

Awesome bob! i get my SF diodes from modwerx so they come already harvested :(

i've got the videos for the GGW's BR and red diodes...just need to edit them all together...hardest part with those is getting them out of the damn sled!

Last time I harvested a LD, I filed down two slots in the heatsink, and then pulled both apart with two pairs of pincers. Suddenly two pieces of metal flew away, and in one pair of pincers I was left with an undamaged , and extracted LD.

I was lucky.

With a pair of nippers and a pair of small needle nose pliers, they pop out in seconds. The nippers then allow you to remove the diodes from their heat sinks in seconds also.

Peace,

BTW what optics do the sf-aw210 sleds have?? do they have the dichros like the PHR and a PBS cube??

and what does DT means?

I don't see any shorting pins in the vid, I think with static electricity sensitive diodes it's best to put a jumper over the two power pins when not connected to anything. I don't know how much this makes a difference, but I do it anyway just to be sure.
