Last saturday i went to Dixiscan and we started working on my new projector.
The basis for this projector is the RG projector i bought from Edison.
In that projector is a:
Green Laserwave 500mW doing 690mW
Red Kvant (642/640?nm) 600mW doing 640mW
Dixiscan and i put in the 510mW blue 473nm RGB Lasersystems module i bought.
First we took out the spacelas board taking up way too much space, i needed the space for the blue driver and powersupply ! First we fitted in the blue module:
We modified the baseplate so the connector could go through.
On the other side i fitted a (temporary) 12V supply, the blue RGB Lasersystems module needs 5.7A of 5V and 1A @12V (for the TEC), in the top right corner you see the temp. 12V which i took out of a Blackbox switchbox for pc's ;-)
Then our time was up and the next day i continued to build. Dixiscan was so nice to let me borrow his small smoke machine. Although it not continually blew smoke in my room, but in little puffs, it filled up quite nice and quite quickly, the beams just looked gorgeous ! When all was aligned it was time to fire her up. After i adjusted the dichro's as good as i can i ended up with a nice white beam. I measured it up with my Laserwave meter, after having warmed it up.
1204mW, wow 1,2Watt of whitelight coming out of my projector after optics !
And that's with the OLD laserwave dichro's ! Soon i hope to upgrade to the new, i must see an improvement i hope !
This is one of the pictures i really like:
You can see all the colors forming nicely. Also notice that the red Kvant is made of out of multiple dots.
On the dichro you can see 2x3 dots.
Here's my 1.2W deathray:
And some RGB:
A multicolor tunnel:
Rasterscanning a picture of myself...
A new thumbnail picture ?
This one i also really like, nice vibrant colors.
And a last one:
Mind you that actually the blue is too high located, it's beam is on 31mm above the beamtable.
The laserwave is at 29mm if i am not mistaken and the Kvant i have to look up.
So i will cut some metalplates 2mm thick and place those below Kvant and the Laserwave Green.
That way my alignment , which already looks nice, will even look better.
Keep you posted but this will make up a nice projector to go with my 2x 1W greens i think....
Thanks for your interest, open to any suggestions or questions !
If anyone can explain to me how to link to photos in the gallery i would love that very much, so they show up here ?
I will then place a warning that it's a heavy to load page, but it's easier then.
Choosing the insert image and pasting the link doesn't work since the photogallery page is an HTM and not a pic... ;-(
