Laser Pointer!!!

we can use this right....with a digital port.....on and off correct?


laser pointer

but it states it runs on less than 5v......

Volts is not the problem , 25 ma (thats .025 amps) is what ezb is rated for from a single output which is the average led. A laser probably draws between 100 ma - 300 ma maybe more. Just check the current draw on your laser diode and make sure its not more than the servo output current rating. It's in ezb manual.

@hoolagen1,
Go to the URL that Choyster lists. That will tell you how to use the transistor. Also DJ had a really slick jpg of the TIP 120 showing a wireing diagram but I tried going back to get it for you but it had been moved. May be DJ will put it up agian.

Here's the diagram Bookmaker is talking about.
