LASER COMPONENTS announces the first digital photodiode sensors, DPDS Importance: High

Digital Vis-NIR Detector Modules

LASER COMPONENTS announces the first digital photodiode sensors, DPDS. The

advantage over simple photodiodes is obvious: These products are easy to handle, the
system is ready for immediate application.

The MAJOR series will be available in two versions: For the wavelength range from
500 - 1700 nm the products will be equipped with InGaAs detectors, for the range
from 700 - 2200 nm with extended InGaAs detectors. On an optional basis versions
up to 2600 nm will be available, too. The integrated M12 thread facilitates the integration
of the module.

The DPDS modules have broad capabilities: they are equipped with an automatic amplification
adjustment, averaging, time stamp, and temperature protocol. Communication
is carried out through an RS-232 interface. Use of the modules is extremely easy;
they have an intuitive user interface. Thus, all parameters can be easily adjusted.
Upon customer request, the modules can be modified with regard to the controls, the
data to be analyzed, and the structual shape.

The Company LASER COMPONENTS is specialized in the development, manufacture, and sale of components and services for the laser and opto-electronics industries. With sales offices in four different
countries, the company has served its customers since 1982. In-house production at six locations
in Germany, Canada, and the USA began in 1986 and is meanwhile responsible for about
half of its turnover. Currently, the family-run business employs more than 150 people worldwide.

maxon motor's - Compact power for your motion control application.

maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
