Digital driver with USB-enabled microcontrollers

It has been announced that LASER COMPONENTS now offers a digital laser driver for driving and monitoring selected FLEXPOINT laser modules. The microcontroller is connected to the module via USB or RS-232. Important operational settings such as output power, trigger, pulsation, and modulation can be programmed by the user according to requirements.

Parameters such as the operating time of the system, the temperature in the module, or the laser diode current can also be monitored via the controller. This information allows the user to draw conclusions, for example, about the ageing process. Downtimes can then be significantly reduced by predictive maintenance.

The microcontroller also guarantees stable output power and particularly good linearity between the control voltage and the analogue output power.
