This laser diode emit high intensity visible light which can be hazardous to the human eye. Continuous optical output power: 1.6W - 1.7W (All Tested). 4.4 - 4.8V. Beam Divergence II approx: 15°. Small package TO-18: 5.6mm diameter.Without a cooling system: overheat and destroy to 5S after power on. Temperature on socket over 60 degree celsius is detrimental for the diode. This laser diode needs Driver - Not included. Attention: The following practices should be followed to minimize damage to static sensitive devices. After removed from anti static packing. Handle laser diode by the body. Do not slide laser diode over any surface. Only grounded tip soldering irons should be used. Connect to ground Soldering Wire with Rosin Core. Shorted both pins after finished.
Remove Short after connect to driver. Use quality Constant Current Driver for this LD - accurate Current and Voltage. Direct connect to Standard Power Supply will damage the LD. The item "1.6W 1600mW Blue 445nm Laser Diode TO-18 5.6mm" is in sale since Saturday, November 05, 2016.
