Newport / ILX Lightwave LDC-3900 Laser Diode Controller and Modules

  • Hosts 4 Channels for Interchangeable Current Source, TEC or Combination Modules
  • Hosts LD current Modules up to 8 A
  • Hosts 32 W (8 V, 4 A) TEC Modules
  • Hosts Controller Modules up to 2 A LD Current with TE Control
  • GPIB Interface


The ILX Lightwave LDC-3900 is a highly flexible, modular laser diode controller. The instrument features four rear-loading module bays that accept a wide range of user-interchangeable modules. Modules include current sources with maximum outputs from 200 mA to 8 A, a TE controller that supplies up to 32 W, and special "2-in-1" current source/TEC combination modules.

With five different current source modules and five "combination" modules available (current and TEC), the LDC-3900 can be configured for hundreds of applications. Each module is also fully isolated (electrically floating) from all other modules. This feature permits system configuration without the fear of laser-damaging ground loops.

For automated control, a GPIB/IEEE-488.2 interface allows remote programming and readout from most computers. All instrument and module functions accessible from the front panel are also accessible through the interface bus, allowing both simultaneous and independent control or testing of several lasers-all from the same interface, saving both time and space.

Product Family: LDC3900, LDC-3900, LDC 3900, CSM-39020, CSM-39050, CSM-39100, CSM-39400, CSM-39800, LCM-39420, LCM-39425, LCM-39427, LCM-39437, LCM-39440, TCM-39032, TCM-39034

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
