Laser Distance Limit?

by ibucky on Thu Jan 03, 2013 3:54 pm

Is there a distance limit for the adafruit listed lasers? If so, what is the distance limit of the laser light?

The visibility of the projected beam will depend (mostly) on the ambient light. In full daylight - maybe 10-15 feet. In the dark - a lot further.

The beam will also diverge a bit at longer distances. You can focus them to get the tightest possible beam for maximum distance.
