Product Overview:

The LDI-536 series high power drivers for laser diodes offer up to 70 amps of bias current at a maximum voltage of 5V. They offer an RS232 or a USB digital interface with control software and LabView drivers. They have integrated laser diode protection features such as current limit, soft start current ramp and power surge filters to make sure that your laser diodes are protected at all times. Additionally, these units offer CW, modulated, and Quasi-CW (QCW) slow pulsed modes and have an integrated function generator. Pulse width's as narrow as 29 microseconds are achievable. They are offered in a rack-mount 19 inch width chassis and have a front panel with adjustment knobs for fast, simple set-up.

Protection Features Specifically Designed for High Power Laser Diodes:
These current sources feature multiple levels of built-in laser diode protection which have been optimized for high power bars and arrays. One of the unique features is a user programmable soft-start ramp of the bias current to the device under test. The factory sets the ramp time to 300 milliseconds as a default, but the user can adjust this time period from 1 millisecond up to 10's of seconds. This current ramp up and down function is designed to protect the laser from thermal shock during power up and down sequences. In addition to this soft-start ramp, these drivers offer features such as current limit, a brown-out and black-out power surge clamp, AC line filters and a fast response to shunt the current in the event of an open circuit. These drivers utilize high current rear panel connector and there are multiple cabling options available to ensure reliable connection to your device under test.
