Ixys has introduced the PCX-7401 precision laser diode driver and current source by its Ixys Colorado division. This instrument provides precision pulsed current with accurate microprocessor-based digital power control.
The PCX-7401 is an air-cooled, bench-top current source featuring separate pulse and bias current adjustment. This is designed to drive diode lasers, bars, and arrays up to 3A with a bias current of up to 0.5A at a 15V maximum forward voltage. The PCX-7401 enables a range of lower-current laser diode uses for research, laboratory, scientific and industrial applications.
