I just had a conversation with ZRaffleticket about pressing it in a module for you. Sure, I can add a driver. What current do you want it set at? If you heat sink it, it is good up to 300 mA. I have my EDC build in a copper heat sink that remains just under 488nm after 30 seconds of being on. It will likely remain there longer, but that is all the time I allowed for when I ran the test. Mine is set at 275 mA.
So, i got itchy feet and wanted to know exactly what this flexdriveV5 was set at. I measured 130mW on my Hyperium, using the G2 lens it came with :drool:
As if this diode hasn't already been on a roller-coaster ride, the poor little guy was in for it again :gun:
With a big deep breath, i de-soldered the flexdrive, and connected the driver and PLT5-488 diode separately to my testing station. Here's the result.......... op:
So i tested the driver with a ~5Vf and yes, 150mA out. So with the higher Vf of this PLT5-488 diode, the drivers outputting 105mA. And here's the part which has me... :thinking: ...I'm getting 130mW with a G2, with 105mA in.... :crackup:
Is that your only LPM? I have four, so I can check possible erroneous measurements with another meter. Which sensor are you using? If it is the uncoated one, I have doubts about its calibration because it is not board band. Depending on the wavelength, your readings could be high or low.
