New Remote Integrates Up to Six OBIS Lasers
Coherent, Inc has expanded the company’s OBIS family of plug-and-play smart laser modules and accessories by introducing the OBIS 6-Laser Remote that integrates the power supply and control of up to six separate lasers in a standalone (i.e., CDRH compliant) format. This new accessory is the same compact size (105 x 68 x 36 mm) as the existing OBIS single laser remote. The OBIS 6-Laser Remote not only integrates operation of multiple lasers, it also reduces the cost of ownership and the footprint of the overall system, since it allows all the OBIS lasers to utilize a single 12V power supply. It incorporates a CDRH-requisite on/off master key switch as well as individual color-coded flip switches to power on/off up to six different OBIS lasers. Moreover, this new remote is offered as a package with a 12V power supply module, together with color-coded labels and six color-coded cables to clearly identify different wavelength lasers.
By design, smart OBIS lasers bring plug-and-play simplicity to OEM applications, with a wide choice of individual wavelengths. The addition of a remote interface makes their operation fully CDRH-compliant, enabling their use as cost-effective standalone lasers for laboratory, research applications, R&D or instrumentation/system integration.

Applications for OBIS span life sciences, metrology and inspection. Examples include fluorescence-based techniques such as flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and array readers for drug discovery. Here the wide choice of OBIS wavelengths enables optimum excitation of target fluorophores. And, in inspection and machine vision applications, the OBIS wavelength can be chosen to maximize contrast or other parameters.
