250 mA, Constant Current Laser Diode Controller Module
The C158 combines a constant-current mode laser diode driver and linear temperature controller in one compact and easy to use circuit board OEM module. The laser current and TEC outputs are delivered to the remote-mounted laser by cable, providing full design freedom for locating critical system components. The controller can drive butterfly lasers with an internal TEC, or other lasers attached to a TEC-regulated mounting plate.
Straight-Forward Operation for Application Flexibility
Operating the C158 is simple and straight-forward. Controller parameters are set with on-board potentiometers and DIP switches, and connections are provided for external control with analog and TTL signals.
The laser diode driver operates in constant-current mode, and provides low-noise current with a low temperature coefficient of change. The laser driver has an analog bandwidth of 250 kHz; fast TTL-compatible switching is provided via an SMB connector. The current limit is user adjustable, and is hardware limited to 250 mA. The factory can set the hardware limit for custom applications; please inquire for information.
The 12 Watt linear TEC controller is regulated by a built-in PI control loop, or can be controlled using monitor output and external setpoint signals. The TEC current limit is adjustable via on-board DIP switch.
Cost Competitive, Robust, Compact
The C158 is a cost-competitive solution for OEM applications that require stable laser diode current and temperature control. Discounts are offered for large quantity purchases; inquire for details.
