For many years we have been limited to either red Intrinsically Safe lasers, or some inefficient green laser systems that use complex and unstable technologies. Now, with the release of direct green laser diodes, we are able to offer the very first Intrinsically Safe, Long Range laser product that provides a bright green beam that is visible in the air under low ambient light conditions or with dust. Safe for Mining, safe for construction. Internationally Certified to IECEx Standards under Certification IECEx SIM 13.0005. And our new green systems have about the same battery life as our red lasers, unlike our competitors who us the old green laser technology which is power hungry.

The BLX-515S is a new release product for underground coal mining and hazardous area use which sets new standards in laser alignment. The BLX-515S emits a HIGHLY visible GREEN laser beam which is a Class 2M output, useful over several hundred metres.

The product USES 5x C-Cell batteries, with the laser aligned precisely to the hexagonal laser head geometry. The new -S models include an automation-enabling modulation that provides special signals embedded on the laser beam to be decoded by sensor systems.

The BLX-515S is also available in battery-removable versions. One version has a removable 5 x D-cell battery pack (quite heavy !!), but we also offer the same prodcut with a removable 5 x AA cell battery pack. The advantages of the removable battery packs are that the laser does not need to be taken to a safe zone to change the batteries. Although there is a slight reduction in battery life due to the Intrinsically Safe means inside the battery system, the advantages of not having to reset the laser are savings in time, and money.
