Integrated Driver for superluminescence diodes
Superluminescent diodes (SLD) are broadband, speckle-free lightsources out of a single-mode fiber. Applications for SLDs are for example OCT and imaging systems in medical and industrial environment.
Operation of a highly
sensitive SLD is pretty complicated. For this reason Beratron invented the
world smallest driver in a box especially for SLDs with integrated peltier
cooling. The robust and compact driver can be integrated in the final product
as well as in the laboratory. Time-consuming development of the driver for the
final product can be omitted.
The driver is equipped with an easy analog interface as well as with USB interface and can be easily integrated in industrial and laboratory environments.
A configurable build-in over-current protection circuit protects the SLD from spikes.
All relevant parameter can be set and read back via USB.
The driver is powerd with 8 - 30 V.
The driver is equipped with a FC/APC connector on the back.
A multicolor LED on the frontside informs about the status of the driver.
The driver can be operated in
constant-current (CC) or constant-power (CP) mode. Up to 50 KHz repetition
frequency is possible in internal and external operation mode. An analgog
power- and currentmonitor completes the integrated SLD driver.
If desired the driver can be adapt to your special needs - do not hesitate to contact us!
