The MPL500 is a very low noise laser diode driver. It operates from +12 to +15 V and is very easy to set up for any laser diode / photodiode configuration. Cabling to the female Dsub15 connector is available: WCB102. A smaller low noise laser diode driver is available in the FL500.
The MPL has two photodiode ranges that provide variable sensitivities for optimum operation. You can maintain excellent stabilty when operating in both constant current and constant power mode. Setpoint and current limit trimpots are easilly accessible and offer precision control. A slow start circuit, mechanical shorting relay, and current limit offer maximum protection for your laser diode even when power is removed. The level of current set by the current limit is always drawn from the DC power supply.
The MPL500 is used in electro-optical equipment.
