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 an 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
The 485-04-08 includes USB and RS232 computer interfaces, allowing for a quick and easy connection to a PC for remote operation. In addition, the LaserPaks’s command set is compatible with ILX and Newport controllers, allowing you to leverage any existing software you may have already developed.
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.
