OSI Laser Diode Introduces 1625 nm High-Power (350 mW, typical), Pulsed Laser Diode Module for Optical Testing

New 1625 nm pulsed laser diode module will be showcased in OSI Laser Diode’s booth # 2501 at OFC Technical Exposition, March 24 - 26, 2015, Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, Calif.

March 12, 2015 - Edison, NJ - OSI Laser Diode, Inc. (LDI), an OSI Systems Company, introduces the SCW 1632-350R, a high-power, pulsed laser diode module for optical testing applications. Housed in a 14-pin butterfly package, the new ridge waveguide (RWG) Fabry-Perot (FP) laser diode is optically coupled to a single-mode fiber (SMF) pigtail and includes a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and an electrically-isolated temperature-sensing thermistor. Ideal for applications where high peak pulsed optical power is required, the new device is specifically designed for use in optical spectrum analyzers (OSAs) and optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs). The higher power gives the OTDR manufacturer greater dynamic range capability.


OSI Laser Diode's SCW 1632-350R operates at 1625 nm and features optical power of 350 mW (typically). It joins the family of high-power pulsed laser diode modules, including the previously introduced SCW 1532-500R that operates at 1550 nm and features higher than 500 mW optical power. Both modules are RoHS compliant and feature the industry-standard pin-out packaging that offers excellent pulse drift performance and high stability.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
