XY Pattern Generator
Fascinate and educate students with demonstrations of how lasers can create endless light patterns

The X-Y Laser Pattern Generator is the ideal educational vehicle to captivate student interest in the dynamic world of laser technology. When used with any laser, this device creates endless combinations of patterns and shapes, similar to those created for large and expensive laser light theatrical presentations.

Applications:

  • Create students' own laser light shows
  • Dynamically contrast stereo and mono audio sounds
  • Mimic the use of laser beams in cutting applications
  • Meet the special lighting needs of small theaters
  • Demonstrate laser beam control with motors and mirrors
  • Create infinite numbers of Lissajous and quadrature patterns

  XY Pattern Generator

Part Number: IF XYP 
Price: $340.00
Operators Manual

XY Pattern Generator is suitable for use with any Class II, IIIa or Class IIIb laser or laser producing visible light.

Create such images
as shown below





The generator is housed in a see-through cool-blue acrylic case for easy viewing and alignment, and can be used in conjunction with any HeNe, diode or visible light laser. Laser light patterns can be generated with either the internal electronics or patched to an audio signal to create light images from sound. (Pattern Generator comes with control head, 110 VAC-to-12 VDC power adapter and operator's manual. An external lasing source is required.)

LASER CLASSIFICATIONS

All manufacturers of lasers used in the United States, must conform to regulations administered by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CDRH categorizes lasers as follows:

 Class 1

A laser or laser system which does not present a hazard to skin or eyes for any wavelength or exposure time. Exposure varies with wavelength. For ultraviolet, .2 to .4m exposure is less than from .8 or near IR, the exposure is < 200w. Consult CDRH regulations for specific information.

 Class 2

Any visible laser with an output less than 1 mW of power. Warning label requirements yellow caution label stating maximum output of 1 mW. Generally used as classroom lab lasers, supermarket scanners and laser pointers.

 Class 3a

Any visible laser with an output over 1 mW of power with a maximum output of 5 mW of power. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output of 5 mW. Also used as classroom lab lasers, in holography, laser pointers, leveling instruments, measuring devices and alignment equipment.

 Class 3b

Any laser with an output over 5 mW of power with a maximum output of 500 mW of power and all invisible lasers with an output up to 400 mW. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output. These lasers also require a key switch for operation and a 3.5-second delay when the laser is turned on. Used in many of the same applications as the Class IIIa when more power is required.

 Class 4

Any laser with an output over 500 mW of power. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output. These lasers are primarily used in industrial applications such as tooling, machining, cutting and welding. Most medical laser applications also require these high-powered lasers.
