The ILX Lightwave LDM-4616 is a rack-mountable, 16-channel mount for butterfly-packaged laser diodes. Each channel is equipped with a convenient Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket, allowing easy insertion and removal of the laser diode. Slide rollers allow the entire mounting tray to move easily out from the rack, simplifying laser configuration and replacement. Each channel provides laser current and internal temperature control capability.
Electrical signals to the lasers pass through convenient pin-configuration headers and are bussed to the rear panel, or select the ILX Lightwave LDM-4616 DFB version with hard-wired DFB pin-out. Cable bundles, which are terminated with paired 9-pin D-sub connectors, connect readily to ILX Lightwave modular laser diode controllers.
