ScannerMax

Pangolin ScannerMax is a new scanner system family created by Pangolin Systems, for rapidly deflecting a single laser beam to create patterns or effects. ScannerMax scanners are designed for industrial as well as show purposes.

To create spectacular laser shows it is essential to deflect the laser beam extremely fast, so that the patterns, graphics and pictures projected don't appear to be flickering

Laserworld offers Pangolin ScannerMax galvos for many professional laser light systems, such as for most SwissLas and several RTI units.

More ScannerMax solutions are in development at the moment, but the ScannerMax 506 is already available on a larger scale. It speeds at more than 35,000pps at 8° (ILDA Standard) and can do a maximum scan angle of up to 80°. More professional users will appreciate the step response time at 2° optical with only 0.18msec and the great linearity of 99.8 per cent.
