PLD10000 and PLD12500 Laser Drivers

BOZEMAN, Mont., Aug. 6, 2012 — Wavelength Electronics Inc. has redesigned the PLD10000 with a new compact heat sink and fan shroud, and improved internal heat dissipation ability. This technology also has been leveraged into a high-current driver, the PLD12500, that can drive up to 12.5 A. Both models are mounted on printed circuit boards.

To speed product development, the PLD10EV evaluation board can be configured within minutes.

The PLD10000 and PLD12500 can drive lasers with compliance voltage as high as 27.5 V, and both include laser safety features designed to enhance system reliability. Remote enable can be tied to a safety interlock and a temperature controller, and built-in constant current and constant power operating modes minimize electronics overhead.

Onboard controls mean quick and easy driver setup. Analog set point input affords the user remote external control of the laser current and modulation. Latching current limit safely switches off output if current limit is reached. Slow start and current ramp protect the laser during operation, and mechanical shorting relay protects the laser while the driver is powered off.

PLD Series drivers are found in fiber laser pumping, materials processing, pyrotechnic ignition, industrial welding and cutting applications, and laser diode LIV testers.
