IXYS Corp. has released the PCX-7500 high-power laser diode driver/current source that claims to provide precision pulsed current with accurate microprocessor-based digital power control. The instrument is an air-cooled, benchtop current source geared to drive laser diodes, bars and arrays at up to 450A and 110V maximum forward voltage. Pulse widths are adjustable from 4-5,000?s, with a frequency up to 10kHz. The PCX-7500 is ideal for research, laboratory, scientific and industrial applications.

Using one of several communication choices standard with the PCX-7500, users can easily develop automated testing and characterisation configurations that can be stored in the instrument's on-board memory. It may also be operated through its intuitive front panel controls. The colour LCD provides immediate visual confirmation of all operating parameters.

The PCX-7500 features simplified operation with intuitive touch screen interface; Ethernet, USB and RS232 computer interfaces standard; and is CE and RoHS compliant.
