Datasheet

The LDC-3916 16-Channel Laser Diode Controller packs 16 channels of laser diode current source and temperature control into a space-saving 3U-high instrument. An on-board processor powers each module, simplifying future module additions and accelerating performance. A variety of "smart "modules are available. These include controller modules with up to 1.5 A of laser current source, with 9 W of TEC control; dual laser current source modules with two isolated currents of up to 1 A; a dual 9 W TEC module; a 3 A laser current module; and 3 A 24 W TEC module. Additional modules are currently in development.
