Model LDM-4442 High Power Mount with LDM-444202 HHL Mounting Plate
The LDM-4442 solves the ﬁxturing and heat dissipation problems associated with operating higher power laser diodes. This laboratory-quality laser diode mount has the ability to dissipate up to 18 W of heat generated by a laser diode and its internal thermoelectric modules. The laser mounting plates, which attach quickly and easily to the riser, are equipped to handle the most popular laser diode packages. The front of the laser diode is easily accessible to provide operational ﬂexibility in a host of applications.
The LDM-4442 consists of an extruded heat sink, detachable base and water-cooled riser. Interchangeable mounting plates, each designed to accept a high-power laser package, are offered for versatile operation. A small circuit board, containing the appropriate electrical socket, is attached to the reverse side of each laser mounting plate, allowing for quick attachment of the laser diode.
Each mounting plate kit comes with the cables needed to interface to any ILX Lightwave current source or temperature controller. The cables are ﬁxed on one end with standard D-subminiature connectors. The other ends are prepared for easy termination into the provided female connector. This allows easy interface with the male connector afﬁ xed to the laser mounting plate circuit board.
The LDM-4442 can be attached directly to a standard (1/4 - 20 on 1 centers) optical table and conveniently aligns the laser diode at a 4 optical line height. The laser package is electrically isolated from the table to prevent damaging the laser diode.
