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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
