Fully Configurable Pinouts and Standard Connections

All standard mounts in the LDM-4980 series feature fully configurable laser and temperature control connections. This allows the flexibility to accommodate virtually any laser diode pin configuration. In addition, these mounts have the ILX Lightwave® standard 9-pin D-sub input connections to make setup and configuration consistent and easy.

Case Temperature Control Option

The LDM-4982M come standard with the case temperature control option. The case temperature control allows for control of laser package temperature, resulting in simultaneous and independent temperature control of both laser die temperature and package temperature. It is ideal for applications requiring tight temperature stability, different case temperatures, or for testing laser diodes at a wider temperature range.

Zero insertion force (ZIF) sockets

The LDM-4982M is designed to allow quick and easy insertion of mini-DIL laser modules via a 14-pin zero-insertion-force socket. Only 8 of the 14 pins will be used for Mini-DIL packaged diodes. Simple lever actuation provides reliable electrical connections to all laser pins. Once installed in the socket, the laser module is held against the mount with a spring-loaded clamp.
