Wow, that's asking for it!Hi everyone!
I'm getting crazy to build a system to be able to remotely press the on/off button with a servo on a laser.
Maybe you have any idea of any laser that can be remotely turned on/off?
If its on a drone, and its a dedicated use, a telemetry based switch built into the light itself would be the way to go....as that would have the least weight impact.Hi Teej, thanks for the answer
What I need is just a solution to remotely turn on and off the laser. I don't mind if it's a servo or the laser itself with some kind of wireless functions.
The laser is mounted on a drone and I don't want to accidentally shine the laser in someones eye or even just to save battery!
Stuff like this:Dear Teej,
what do you mean with "telemetry based switch"? Is that something that I have to make myself or there are some solutions ready to buy?
The laser will be attached to the camera's flash shoe so where the camera will be pointing the laser will also!
Thanks so much!
This is all a conceptual discussion.Dear Teej,
I have to admit that I'm getting kinda confused Sorry but I have no experience at all in this field as you probably already understood!
What would you suggest in my situation? I was reading about solenoids also that look like could work well to press the power button on the laser...
It makes sense, albeit I'm not sure why you'd want to spend that much on turning on a laser, over open water with no targets, but, that's just me.Dear Teej, I totally see your point.
What makes me more relaxed is that I will use the laser 50km offshore and only the boat where I will work from will be there. So I can just wear safety glasses for protection again accidental interferences and general problems. Am I right?
What I would like to build or have someone build it for me is a as simple as possible little system to be able to turn on or off the laser beam so that once pointing the surface I have to shoot if the camera has problems focusing I can activate the beam, focus, shoot the picture and turn it off.
Does it make sense?
