Q switch driver

Share this on social media:

Gooch & Housego has released an ultra small, compact, Q switch driver capable of delivering up to 24 watts at 24, 27.12, or 40.68 mhz for use with its small conductively cooled Q switches.

Its size is 3.75 x 1 x 2.2 inches and requires contact cooling. It features all of the various pulse kill options of our original 39 series driver including PPK, FPS, A05 and R05. 

It also includes a power saving standby mode for use in portable battery operated q switched lasers. Power draw in standby mode is only three watts. The operational power requirement is 15 VDC with less than three amps current draw or less than 45 watts.
