Product Overview:

1500mA Benchtop Laser Diode Controller with Integrated Butterfly Mounting Socket

The MBL1500A series laser diode controllers are designed to precisely control laser diodes in 14-pin butterfly packages. These controllers support both Type 1 and Type 2 pin configurations of industry standard 14-pin butterfly packaged LD's. They include a high stability current source for biasing the laser diode, a TEC for precisely maintaining the temperature through a Peltier cooler (0.01 °C), and mount with an Azimuth ZIF socket for a butterfly packaged LD. These controllers are an excellent choice for laboratory test set-ups and have extensive protection features for safely controlling your laser diode. They are a great choice for safely and accurately controlling LD's from II-VI Laser Enterprise, Eblana Photonics, 3SP Technologies, Furukawa, Lumentum, and other manufacturers.

Multiple Integrated Laser Diode Protection Features

These controllers are designed to provide a series of protection features to ensure the safety of your laser diode. The module ships with a jumper which shunt the LD bias current path of the driver to protect the laser diode from any ESD / static discharges when a user is installing the diode into the mounting socket. This shunt also protects the laser when the user is connecting the DC power, the control connector or any other external equipment. An integrated reverse diode protects the laser diode from any possibility of damage from reverse current and reverse voltage. The user can set a current limit and temperature limit through the analog control connector port on through the on-board trim potentiometers. These controllers also offer a ~ 900 millisecond soft-start ramp to the current set point to avoid the potential for thermal shock to the laser.

Easy to Use Front-Panel Interface, USB Control

The MBL1500A benchtop Laser Diode Controller is operated via the convenient and easy-to-use front panel touch screen display. USB-control is included, as well as software with a graphical user interface.
