• Precise current-controlled continuous wave and pulse-type laser driver
• Two TEC drivers with PID controllers
• Digital and analog modulation inputs
• Multiple safety circuits
• Stored configuration (EEPROM)
• Very low power dissipation due to bias voltage control in cw-mode
• Digital control using isolated RS232 serial interface
The diode laser driver and temperature controller is a highly precise, safe and cost-efficient operating solution for continuous wave (cw) and pulsed diode lasers.
The power supply unit is designed for current-stabilized control of the laser diode and is also equipped with a control unit for laser diode’s controlling optical beam power in cw-mode by means of the integrated photodiode input.
In pulsed mode the laser diode can be operated with the freely configurable built-in oscillator or externally using the modulation input.
The temperature controllers are designed as PID controllers and configured for standard operation with NTC and Pt100 sensors. The use of silicon temperature sensors or other types is equally possible simply by altering the software configuration.
