Another thing I did was build a dummy load to set the driver module. I used the info that I found at LPF and bought some parts at Radio Shack.

I got six 3A diodes p/n 2761144 and a 1 ohm wire-wound 10W resistor p/n 2710131. The small 2.7K resistor across both leads is supposed to discharge the driver capacitors so you don’t zap your laser diode.
