New LP Generation: LP-HFD2 with many new features.

The LP-HFD2 is the successor of our reliable laser projector LP-HFD. In addition to the new housing, stated IP65,the development has been focused on temperature stability in particular.
Fiber-coupled lasers (with red and/or green laser source) are applied with output power of 7 mW. When requested, output power up to 28 mW is possible. The range of standard optic focus is 0.5 m to 7.0 m.With a tele-optic, working distances up to 14 m can be realized. For higher ambient temperatures there are several cooling options available such as extended air hose or water cooling system.
Typical data connection is Ethernet, more communication options via PROFINET or serial connection are also possible.

 IP65 rated
 protection against dust and splash water

 Electrical Protection
 protection class 3
 anti-static discharge prevention

 Improved thermal management

LP HFD2 Improved thermal management Better heat transportation (emission) out of the device due to rearrangement of heat producing components
 Heat input is 10 Watt less due to external power supply
 Less heat generation due to DC/DC converter with higher efficiency (95% less)
 Temperature warning in LPM is now 45°C (before: 40°C).shutdown of the laser source at 50° C

 Multiple Ref-Sensors (Improved DCP-Search)

 2 on board as standard – second can be activated by dip-switch
 Up to 6 possible (optional)
 Service & Maintenance:
 Simplified wiring
 Reduced Cabling Effort

Advantage of Z-Fibre (ZFSM)

LP HFD2 Improved pointing stability

1) Improved pointing stability (less boresight error & thermal drift):
 ZM18 ≃ 15µrad/K  10°C…40°C  30x15µrad  450µrad  0,45mm @1m
 2,25mm @ 5m!
 ZFSM ≃ 3µrad/K
 0,45mm @ 5m!
 better accuracy within the specified temp. range
2) Improved concentricity (coaxiality):
 ZM18 ≃ +/-10mrad; dF[1…5m] ≃ 1mrad
 ZFSM ≃ 3mrad; dF[1…5m] ≃ 0,3mrad
  better accuracy within the specified temp. range

3) Round Spot: (Advantage for DCP search)
 Reduced line thickness because of less ellipticity in one axis
 Better Laser power distribution from the center to the edges
4) Laser power output noise less than 5% within the specified temperature range (e.g. AZURE 20%)
5) Advanced Reliability. Extremely low failure rate is expected.(important especially for the green laser source)
6) Focusable up to 7m, exchangeable red vs green
7) Better life expectancy (Red > 10.000h; Green > 8.000h; MTTF)
8) Less mechanical drift  better accuracy within the specified temperature range.Assembly is exchangeable 1:1 with the latest known Laser Sources.(ZM18,ZC or Azure GLxx-T)

Multicolor LP-HFD2

 Multicolor projection (optional)

LP HFD2 Multicolor projection 2 ZFSM (green + red) with fibre-combiner
 Simultaneously projection of red, green and yellow if both are on.
 Different groups can be projected in different colors:
 Pen 1 = red
 Pen 2 = green
 Pen 4 = yellow
 No offset is visible for yellow due to fibre combiner and same optical path
 In principle also RGB is possible

LP HFD2 Simultaneously projection

• Wide range focal adjustment

 New far-range optics
 Galvo Set with mirrors for 5mm aperture in combination with fibre:1mm spot in 12m distance is possible
