PIM-Mini Series

The PIM-Mini is a compact and lightweight series of pulsed current sources designed to drive laser diodes, bars, arrays, or any low-impedance load.

The PIM-Mini Series output current may be set with an internal potentiometer or an external analog voltage. The pulse width is controlled with the input trigger signal. The system requires two DC voltages for operation, the 12 V support voltage and the compliance voltage equal to 12 V above the laser diode’s forward voltage.

The laser or load is connected to the PIM-Mini with 22 AWG twisted pair cable (included) with a length of 15 cm (6 inches) or less.
