Suitable across a wide range of applications - particularly medical owing to the large number of safety and interlock features, the LDP-CW 80-20 is a compact and efficient current supply for driving CW laser diodes. The operating range does also allow for up to 2KHz analogue modulation as well as CW operation and, if required, a simmer current from 0 to 100% of the output current can be easily setup.

The LDP-CW 80-20 is ideal for high power laser diodes, supplying output currents from 2-80A and compliance voltages from 1-20V, i.e. maximum output powers of 1600W.

As with many of the drivers supplied by LASER COMPONENTS, optional bolt-on accessories are also available for each of interface and control.

With the LDP-C series, you have all options available to safely operate high power laser diodes with a different power level and a pulse width of from cw to 1μs. The extremely small and inexpensive driver boards are optimized for modulation of up to 500kHz. The different TO housings that are available for HP laser diodes can be connected to the board without a problem.

The unit is, therefore, very easy to use; in fact, it only requires a supply voltage of +12..15V and a trigger signal. External components such as, for example, driver interfaces, are not required. This combination of HP laser diode and driver module is used in medical technology, process engineering and testing technology, material processing, and printing technology.
