Cut through it all with this powerful, radiant blue, wide laser beam. Consumes 125 mA so only two can be used per USB-microDig or 3 per WiDig.
- Use as trigger/control beam together with a ReachCloseD sensor and a Flash sensor like in this Laserharp example.
- Create a virtual cage for dancers. Or detect intruder, visitor, dog, cat, mouse .... movements.
- Make every move count and add a TapTiled floor, some MoveOn and/or ReachClose sensors. You might need to rethink your choreography.

- Our EditorX software allows you to configure the digitizer to control multiple actuators simultaneously with on/off as well as PWM signals.
- Our Link software allows you to multiple actuators simultaneously with on/off signals.
- Make sure the actuator is plugged into the digitizer with the red wire connected to power. Reversing the plug or applying power with reverse polarity may cause damage to the actuator.
- The actuator housing should be isolated from the electrical ground, ie. when mounting the actuator the safest is to mount it on something that is not electrically conductive.
- Given the actuators high current consumption, use only two per USB-microdig or 3 per WiDig !
- Can be powered directly by the 5V power of any digitizer but if you want to switch power to it with the USB-microDig or WiDig actuator outputs (top row of the connector for sensors and actuators), it needs to be connected via a Switch, SwitchPower or Drive-FR120N.
- The beam can not be seen in an unlit ("blackened") room without extra dust particles in the air such as haze or smoke. The more dust particles that are in the air, the better the beam will be visible. For best visibility of the beam it is necessary to hide the stray light it emits by placing it in a tube as well as shining the beam into a tube at at the receiving end where a sensor such as the Flash or FlashOn could be placed to detect beam interruption.
- Without heatsink to cool the laser it may turn itself off after 4 - 8 hrs to prevent from overheating.
- Caution ! Never point the beam at the eye, stare into the beam nor look at the beam through a microscope or other lenses. Inform yourself about laser safety.
