The Newport Model 500 / 500AN Series Laser Diode Drivers are low noise, highly stable current sources for use with laser diodes. Selectable output current ranges allow you to choose the laser current range having the optimum resolution for your application. Two operating modes, constant current and constant laser power are vailable. A monitor photodiode can be zero biased or reverse biased up to 5 volts without resorting to external power supplies. Redundant FET and relay shorting circuits protect the laser diode during the beginning of a soft-start sequence. After a short delay the output current slowly ramps up to the operating set-point. A current LIMIT setting unconditionally protects the output from exceeding the laser diode's maximum specified operating current independent of operating mode. An external analog modulation input allows voltage controlling the output and a low cost alternative for remote control and monitoring of the laser diode can be implemented using the Analog Interface Card. Model 500 / 500AN Series Laser Diode Drivers are equipped with an Analog Interface, enabling remote control and monitoring of the laser diode.
