SLD modules are extremely sensitive to surges and spikes of drive current (or voltage).
Any mistake in the design of a driving circuit may result in SLD module damage and failure. In most cases,
modules cannot be repaired from this kind of damage. To provide an adequate level of SLD protection,
it is imperative to have a properly designed current and temperature controller. Superlum offers PILOT
drivers that allow to operate all types of cooled Superlum's SLD modules at a high level of stability and
Compact mounts/heads are available for all types of modules (DIL, BUT and TOW).
Fiber coupled modules can be easily replaced in the mount by the customer—no soldering
required. Free-space SLD modules assembled in TOW 1 and TOW 2 packages and installed in TOW mounts
cannot be replaced by the customer.
