Introduction

Superlum offers a wide selection of SLD-based broadband light sources. The offerings include both compact light source modules intended for integration into larger systems and benchtop instruments developed for use in industrial and research laboratories. Various designs allow analog or digital control of SLD modules. All sources have integrated high-precision driving electronics to provide stable and reliable performance. All sources are RoHS compliant.

Product series Picture Description
SLD-mCS SLD-mCS SLD-mCS,sCS-series Miniature Broadband Light Source Modules.
Miniature single-SLD broadband light sources with analog SLD control. The successor models to the SLD-MS. 9-30 V DC-powered. 50-KHz SLD modulation. Switchable SLD control mode (ACC-APC). Can be built based on any SLD of Superlum provided its drive current does not exceed 400 mA.
SLD-sCS SLD-sCS
SLD-CS SLD-CS SLD-CS-series Compact High Power Broadband Light Source Modules.
Compact single-SLD broadband light sources with analog SLD control. 9-30 V DC-powered. 50-kHz SLD modulation. Allows integration of additional components like couplers, optical isolators (including bulky 850-nm ones). Recommended for powerful SLD light sources. APC SLD control as a standard, ACC-APC switchable upon request. The versions based on the most powerful SLDs at different center wavelengths are available as a standard. Can be built based on any SLD of Superlum provided its drive current does not exceed 400 mA.

SLD module and controller combinations

To select an SLD module and controller combination, choose the appropriate SLD module (please refer to SLD Modules product page) and a light source product series (see the table below). The light source model number includes the product series and the SLD model mumber. The Output power and the spectrum width depend on the SLD module selected. The center wavelength—from 660 to 1620 nm.
