Newport Corporation has announced its Model 6100 laser diode and temperature controller. The innovative instrument provides unmatched precision current and temperature control for laser diode applications. The 500mA/1500mA current supply range, along with the 32W temperature controller is ideal for all demanding laboratory applications.
Newport's Model 6100 controller combines advanced stability for use with TO-can laser diodes (TO-56 and TO-9) and butterfly packages that require up to 1500mA of current. The new integrated laser diode and temperature controller model is an innovative design that incorporates advanced digital signal processor (DSP)-based PID control and ultra-stable current control to achieve < 0.001°C temperature stability and 1.3µA (rms) ripple, respectively.
Other features include a full four-line alpha-numeric menu system for easy navigation of functions and settings within the bench top instrument. Two large, seven-segment displays offer a clear view of current and temperature readings. Fast LIV measurement function is built into the unit, with analogue input provision from a power meter. This driver is compatible with a variety of Newport's laser diode mounts and accessories, making the Model 6100 well-suited for precise and reliable control in scientific and laboratory tasks.
