485 Series LaserPak

The 485 LaserPak laser driver offers the same high-quality instrumentation that Arroyo Instruments benchtop units are known for, at one-third the size. LaserPak brings the great performance and laser protection features found on the LaserSource at a lower cost.

485 SERIES FEATURES

The LaserPak laser diode driver is an Arroyo OEM power supply that offers the same, solid quality instrumentation our bench top units are known for, in a smaller, cost-effective solution for custom systems.

The LaserPak brings the great performance and protection features found on the LaserSource into a package that is 1/3 the original size. In addition to both USB and RS-232 ports, the LaserPak replaces the standard user interface with an analog control interface not found on the LaserSource, allowing operation of the supply without the need for a computer.

The LaserPak has all the features you expect in a laser driver, such as safety interlock, ESD protection, and hardware limit circuits for current and voltage

OVERLAPPING LASER PROTECTION

Including safety interlock, ESD protection, hardware limits for current & voltage, soft power-on, and intermittent contact safeguards.

MULTIPLE OPERATING MODES

Choose from:

  • Constant Current
  • Constant Power
  • Constant Voltage

ROBUST ANALOG INTERFACE

Provides on/off control, status, and analog monitor of current and photodiode. Auxillary thermistor and voltage monitor input for extended monitoring.

ANALOG MODULATION

Bandwidths up to 65 kHz.
