BOZEMAN, Mont., May 13, 2012 — For the LRS-9550 high-power laser diode life-test and burn-in system for single emitters, ILX Lightwave, a Newport Corp. brand, has unveiled the LRS-9580 calibration system. A complete, self-contained transportable unit, it calibrates fixtures, shelves and measurement electronics for the LRS-9550 test system, and it enables LRS-9550 customers to easily calibrate their systems on-site, improving uptime and increasing productivity. It can calibrate and/or verify the following aspects: fixture temperature sensor measurement accuracy, laser diode voltage measurement accuracy, fixture trace resistance, optical power measurement accuracy (requires characterized laser source, not included), current set point accuracy, control measurement modules, temperature measurement accuracy, and self-calibration of internal current sense resistors. The system includes ReliaCal system software, which provides a single source for all calibration functions. All calibrations are managed from an easy-to-use home screen. The interface allows the user to quickly and easily configure and perform multiple calibrations, prompting the user with simple graphical instructions. ReliaCal supports concurrent calibrations, allowing up to eight fixtures and one control measurement module to be calibrated simultaneously.
