Product Overview:

Dual-Output TEC Controller Overview

The TEC-590 dual output high power laser diode TEC controllers provide precise, simultaneous control of two Peltier coolers with independent fully programmable PID control loops. The controller is designed to deliver milli-degree temperature control stability from two separate 8 amp, 16 volt bipolar DC current outputs. One output and temperature sensor is typically used for the laser diode cooler and the second output is used to control the temperature of a crystal. Each controller has it's own feedback from a temperature sensor input.

Built-in Safety Features

The TEC-590 includes thoughtfully designed safety features to protect your laser investment.
  • Output to drive an external cooling fan, capable of supplying up to 500 mA at 24 V.
  • Leads for the laser interlock to ensure the laser driver is switched on only when it is safe to do so.

    High Speed Precision PID TEC Control Loop for Fast Temperature Settling and Milli-Degree Stability

    The TEC-590 Peltier element controllers come with preprogrammed PID control loop settings, set for optimal control of typical laser diode thermal loads. The proportional variable (gain) can be set using a simple linear scale of gain constants. In order to simplify setup and programming, the commands are prefixed with L for laser and C for crystal, respectively.

    Simple GUI Interface and Powerful Programming Tools

    All TEC control parameters and all monitoring functions are accessible through the RS-232 or the optional USB interface. The graphical user interface offers a simple dashboard for laboratory and R&D environments, while the terminal software tools suite provide fast integration of the TEC-590 into laser systems or manufacturing applications.
