For years hobbyists have been intrigued by the possibility of using a 'beam of light' to control other devices! The abundance of inexpensive laser elements that have now become available has further pushed the demand for useful products and experimental kits. The LTS1 Laser Trip Sensor was developed with the intention of providing a fun and educational kit that can actually be used constructively upon completion. The kit comes with all you'll need to set up your own laser fence, the laser element (small keychain type high power laser pointer!), the PVC enclosure, and the laser detector with built in Audible and Visible Alert indicators. (And yes, you can put the laser pointer on your keychain instead, and get thrown out of concerts, no problem!)

The LTS1 can be used in a number of different ways. The break-away circuit board gives the user the flexibility of remotely mounting the detector circuit (optionally powered with a standard 9 Volt battery) over 500 yards away without the need for mirrors. If mirrors are used, arrangements in a doorway or as a perimeter fence can almost guarantee detection of any unwanted guests. For added functionality, the relay output (5 Amp rating) can be used to drive other devices such as an event counter, lights, or even camera modules!
Operates from 9 - 18 VDC @ 90 to 100 mA. Detector portion can use a standard 9V battery with long life. Board dimensions: 4" L x 1" W (max component height: 5/8"). Includes a 6” length of 1.25” ID PVC to conveniently house and mount the board assembly. Kit can also be adapted to use with an infrared (Non-visible) laser.
