Being the first company to bring the green laser to the commercial market we have kept at the forefront of this exciting technology.  With an extremely wide operating temperature range -40 to +50°C, this enables the laser to be taken to new extremes. With a small form factor and optional TTL to 5kHz this new laser is an exciting enhancement to the Frankfurt Laser Company range. This wide operating temperature range makes this ideal for outdoor applications especially in the military field.
