May 2001IXYS ColoradoRequest Info
Directed Energy Inc. has released an air-cooled, high-power pulsed current source for driving diode lasers, bars and arrays. The PCX-6220 laser diode driver delivers current pulses from 1 to 150 A, pulse widths from 50 µs to 20 ms and pulse repetition frequencies from single-shot to 5 kHz at duty cycles up to 50%. It is power-factor-corrected and provides up to 6 kW of peak and 1.2 kW of average output power. It has a switch-mode design for low internal stored energy and typical wall plug-to-output connector efficiency of >70%.
