VueMetrix has released its Vue-MV-40 laser diode controller with DiodeGuard. The high-power, low-noise controller is ideal for applications that use 15-20 discrete diodes operated in series including fibre lasers and amplifiers, materials processing, and medical systems. The latest addition to the Vue Series of laser diode controllers includes DiodeGuard, VueMetrix's laser diode protection circuitry. The Vue-MV-40 is available in 40V, 10A and 27V, 15A configurations.
The Vue-MV-40 incorporates all required diode and user safety features plus temperature and fault monitoring for laser system control. In addition it comes standard with WinVue user interface software. This gives system designers and integrators the ability to accelerate product development by allowing them to use the same laser diode control electronics from prototype to production. Faster time-to-market, reduced BOM, and improved reliability lower the overall cost of ownership.
Based on the VueMetrix platform design, the Vue-MV-40 offers user settable power, current and operating temperature limits. It can be operated via RS232, USB or analogue inputs in either CW or pulsed mode. The Vue-MV-40 is available in both embeddable OEM and stand-alone configurations.
