PROVEN RELIABILITY SAVES YOU TIME AND MONEY
The LDTC Laser Diode Driver and Temperature Controller combines Wavelength’s proprietary FL500 and highly stable WTC3243 in one compact module. LDTC modules are in use around the world providing trouble-free reliability in range finders, telecom laser modules, military-aerospace research and development, airborne metrology, academic research, laser diode LIV testers, and more.
DESIGNED FOR EASY INTEGRATION
The LDTC module requires minimal overhead electronics, so your engineers can focus on high-level design features that differentiate you from your competitor. The compact LDTC is easily mounted in your laser system, with latching connectors for easy manufacturing. The flexibility of the LDTC design allows the controller to be operated from a single power supply. The power supplies can also be separated, if your application requires higher compliance voltage.
POWER YOUR APPLICATION WITH THE RIGHT FEATURES
The laser driver is based on our popular FL500, known for low noise output and trouble-free operation. Two models are available, providing either 500 mA (LDTC0520) or 1.0 A output current (LDTC1020). The current limit circuit cleanly clamps laser diode current without ringing or overshoot, and recovers without inducing a phase shift in a modulated laser signal.
The temperature controller is designed around the WTC3243, our ultra-stable temperature control module known for the ability to sweep load temperature across ambient. Independent cooling- and heating-current limits allow the LDTC to be used with thermoelectric coolers or resistive heaters and either negative or positive temperature coefficient sensors.
Remote computer control is available using the USBKIT, which also allows graphing and datalogging.
The LDMOUNT-5A, a 14-pin butterfly laser diode mount with integrated heat sinking, is available for simple connections between the LDTC and the laser.
Wavelength has done critical research and design work into safely controlling laser diodes. The result is a module that saves you money in development and manufacturing, and delivers trouble-free service over the life of the system.
