Software to check a laser


Recommended Posts

There is a software called "Laser Diagnostic Tool" to check the health of the laser. But there really is no way to determine how much life is left on a laser using that software. The machine has no way of checking the operating current of the lasers. The current could be right at the limit and the software will tell you the lasers are fine. Then you might start to get errors the next day. Only by measuring the the current and how much it changes over a given period of time can you predict the remaining life of a laser. Even then it is much of a guess.

The final answer is that there is not perfect way to predict the life of one of these lasers.
