Product Overview:

3 Amp /16 W Controller for Butterfly Package Pump Laser Diodes

These 3 amp low noise laser diode controllers with butterfly mounting sockets are designed to power and control the temperature of butterfly packaged devices. They are optimized for precision control of pump laser diodes from manufacturer's such as 3SP Technologies, Lumentum and II-VI. Manufactured by Maiman Electronics LLC, a leading diode pump solid state laser manufacturer, their design provides integrated pads for soldering a butterfly packaged laser diode directly onto the control electronics driver board. These devices are an excellent choice for product integration or for an affordable solution to laboratory test set-ups. These modules are also available with Azimuth connector.

Fast, Simple Set-Up and Control

The SF series laser diode control and mounting modules are simple to set-up and operate. They can be configured through adjustment trim potentionmeters, a USB / UART connector or an analog control signal connector. They require a separate 5VDC power supply (user supplied).

Small Footprint Precision Laser Diode Controller

These modules are the smallest footprint controller which is commercially available. Careful selection of components and and exacting design criteria allows the modules to provide complete control of your pump laser in a 61mm x 101mm package. They have a 10mm thick aluminum base plate which provides excellent heat dissipation and keeps the laser diode safely operating within your desired operating temperature range. The module base plate comes with 4 mounting through-holes, 3.2mm each, to bolt the module directly to an instrument chassis or any thermally conductive surface.

Multiple Layers of Laser Diode Protection

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.
