I have recieved many messages and emails about my last post regarding this new laser, so I figured I'd respond here instead of writing a dozen emails seperately!

Laserglow is pleased to introduce a NEW version of the Orion-200. The original Orion-200 is a 660nm handheld laser with output power over 200mW, featuring continuous operation (100% duty cycle) and full FDA-compliant safety features. This new version (model# Orion-635-200) is the exact same laser, but producing 635nm for much greater brightness and visibility. (How much more? Ask somebody who owns a 660nm and a 635nm laser, and they'll tell you it's a lot more visible!) The housing, beam specs and all other features remain the same as the existing Orion-200 (see: http://www.laserglow.com/index.php?orion)

We have only produced a small batch of these 635nm Orions, and depending on how much interest there is we may or may not continue with future production, so this may turn out to be a "limited edition". The price for the "Orion-635-200" is USD $1399.00 and includes the standard Laserglow 6-month warranty, stylish carrying case and free EMS shipping where available (Xpresspost within North America).

To order one, or if you have more questions, please contact me at work: sales@laserglow.com or 416.729.7976

Wow Justin.

Now there is something you don't see every day, a 200mw 635nm :cool:. I bet that is bright as hell. even my little 10mw 635 is way brighter than its 650/660 counterparts.

WOW! That would be one hell of a laser to have! I'm sure it'd be quite the show stopper...

Green dude: "Hey check out my new green laser..." *point*
635nm dude: "Oh ya... check out my new RED laser..." *point*
Green dude: *G.A.S.P.*
635nm dude: ;D ;D ;D :cool: :cool: :cool:

Just some 5:15 AM humor... If you don't get it... stay awake for a couple days, then try again ;D

We're still doing some testing on the lasers, but I can probably get some beam shots done on Friday. If I get any photos done I'll post them here for you to drool over! And yes, it is incredibly bright for a red laser. Much, much brighter than a 660nm, that's for sure.

what you guys need to do is add ttl to the base model this and some of the other handhelds are based off of.


what I really want to see though is a 200mw handheld blue. :)

Very nice thought there :eek: but I would imagine with the size of the pump diode required, you could never cool or even power it in a handheld. With the horrible effeciency of 473nm conversion, I am guessing that you would need a pump diode way in excess of 5W.. :eek: :eek: :eek:

I was thinking blue diode in a handheld... one can dream. it' pretty close to being a reality now, maybe within a year or two.

Aseras: Thanks for the suggestion! For my information, for what kind of application would you use a handheld laser with TTL? We added it to the Hercules because, with the external power input, the Herc can function as a lab/OEM laser module and TTL makes sense for that purpose. As a pure handheld unit with no external power, what would be the purpose of an external TTL circuit? Does anybody else think that this is a useful suggestion? If so, we can certainly see if the engineers can squeeze it in there or maybe offer it as a custom option. Any feedback would be appreciated!

I really dont see any purpose of including TTL on any handheld laser. As you said Justin, the Herc is in a class of its own due to its size and the ability to power it by external means, it can bridge the gap between handheld (2 hand) hehe, and lab / OEM type. But to extend this to other ranges would be pointless in my opinion.

If you want a lab / oem laser then buy one, even the most basic of lab lasers come with at least TTL if not analogue modulation as standard.

For lasers of this caliber, ttl is a nice accessory, it's cheap to implement and it's a good upselling point.

My main reasoning for any laser that has indefinite runtime is ttl is a great option. It really gives you a lot of possibilities without openly modifying a laser to do more than be a be a bright pointer or a toy.

not to be a bother but if you could compare the beam side by side of a 635 orion to a 660 just to see. if possible.

Thank you for that Justin.. I'll be watching this and eagerly waiting to see what might be my next downfall! :-?

I would really like to see 3 or more units of the same power but different colors in the same shot... as that really gives the colors their true comparison in terms of what a camera can see... for example: 200mW 532nm, 200mW 660nm, 200mW 635nm. That way we can all judge. I believe you when you say 635 is visible and I can testify for that myself, but a picture is worth a thousand words... and in this case... 3000? ;) ;D

Thanx;
