The LDM-49800 Series Laser Diode Mounts provide a compact, easy-to-use solution for testing high power ﬁber coupled packaged laser diodes. The series provides convenient mounting for 2-pin modules and 6-pin, 8-pin, and 14-pin butterﬂy devices with or without an internal TE module. A case temperature control model is available for temperature controlling uncooled lasers over a temperature range of 15C to 85C. A water cooled heat sink allows the 49800 series to dissipate up to 60W.
Careful attention to the LDM-49800 mechanical design results in a low thermal resistance between the laser module and the mounting block. Torquing the device to the recommended value provides constant and repeatable clamping pressure on the laser optimizing the thermal resistance between the laser module and the mounting plate.
The LDM-49800 is compatible with most ILX current sources including the LDX-36000 series high power laser diode drivers and the new LDX-32420 20A laser diode driver. Additionally the mounts are compatible with ILX temperature controllers. Standard interconnect cables interface with connectors for laser current, internal TE and case control on the mount.
The LDM-49800 series case temperature control option is available on all LDM-49800 laser diode mounts. The case temperature control has an integrated high power TEC module to provide control of uncooled laser diode modules with a wide temperature control range of 15C to 85C. The high power TEC removes up to 60W of waste heat.
The LDM-49800 mounts are compatible with ILX Lightwave current sources and temperature controllers through interconnect cabling for quick setup in R&D or manufacturing environments.
Optical table positional mounting is made possible through imperial (25.4 mm) and metric (25 mm) spaced mounting holes on the base of the mount.
The LDM-49840 is designed to accommodate various 6-pin, 8-pin, and 14-pin packages. The unique clamping and spring-loaded circuit board arrangement accommodate butterﬂy modules with different pin heights thus preventing pin damage due to overbending. Terminal blocks accessible from the bottom side allow conﬁguration of the 49840 for any butterﬂy module pinout.
The LDM-49860 is designed to support various manufacturers high power 2-pin modules. The laser clamp provides alignment and excellent clamping pressure even when the 2-pin module does not include mounting ﬂanges. The LDM-49860 is designed to ﬁt 2-pin lasers from JDS Uniphase, Oclaro, Lumics, and EM4. Please contact an ILX Lightwave sales engineer if you have any questions concerning ﬁxturing your 2-pin laser diode package to the 49860.
