The 485-04-08 mirrors much of the functionality of our 4304 LaserSource, with 4 Amps and 8 Voltages of output capability. With a lower cost and smaller footprint, the LaserPak fits better into embedded applications and other low-cost applications.
The 485-04-08 features a high 8V compliance for higher voltage applications, such as LED testing or quantum cascade lasers (QCLs), as well as excellent performance with lower voltage laser diodes.
Analog or Computer — Your Choice
The 485 Series LaserPaks provide both a robust analog interface as well as computer control (USB or RS232) for precise remote operation (you can even use both interfaces simultaneously). The analog interface provides on/off control, status, and analog monitor of current and voltage, while the computer interface provides complete control over all operating parameters.
The 485-04-08’s analog interface supports modulation rates up to 50kHz.
Develop with a LaserSource, Deploy with a LaserPak
The LaserPak is command-set compatible with the LaserSource and also features the identical laser interface. This means you can start your development with the LaserSource, a robust benchtop instrument with a full user interface and display, then move to the lower cost LaserPak as you roll out the application to production or your end-users.
Simple Multi-Channel System
Using the 1402C-RM Rack Mount Tray, you can quickly rack groups of 3 or 5 Paks into a rack for a quick multi-channel system.
USB & RS232 Computer Interfaces
Includes USB and RS232 computer interfaces standard.
Field Configurable AC Input
The LaserPak is configured in the factory for either 115V (485-04-08-115) or 230V (485-04-08-230) operation but can be reconfigured in the field for either voltage.
