Product Overview:

The PLDxK-CH Series Laser Diode Drivers provide you the reliability you can trust and give you the performance you expect from a Wavelength Electronics laser driver in a compact and easy-to-integrate package.

The PLDxK-CH drivers operate from a single 5 V power supply. To be able to accommodate high compliance lasers, or multiple stacked lasers, the PLDxK-CH laser diode drivers allow the laser to be driven from a separate power supply up to 30 V. Tens of thousands of PLD drivers are deployed in particle counters, wavefront scanners, manufacturing vision systems, fiber aligners, and other laser systems, proving beyond doubt the reliability and stability of the design.

The PLDxK-CH drivers has built-in safety features that make your product more robust to real world operating conditions. The latching current limit switches off the output if the current limit is reached, the slow start circuit ramps the output current and a mechanical shorting relay protects the laser from ESD events.

This provides you a long-term reliability for better up-time, fewer service calls, and more satisfaction.

The PLDxK-CH requires no external electronic components. Linear-regulated or low-noise switching power supplies can be used. We recommend using power supplies with noise specifications suitable for your application.
