AV-108E-4A-B Current Pulser or Laser Diode Driver

The AV-108E-4A-B pulsed constant current generator (or pulsed laser diode driver) is designed for driving laser diodes and other low impedance loads with peak currents as high as 150 Amps and average currents to 0.4 Amps. The pulse width is adjustable from 20 us to 200 us, and the rise and fall times are 15 us or less. Load voltages as high as 100V may be accommodated. This model can deliver average powers of up to 40 Watts directly, and does not require any additional power supply other than the standard AC 100-240V, 50-60 Hz.

Base Model P/N Price Notes
Current Pulser or Laser Diode Driver AV-108E-4A-B
$12498
Base model. Units with the -B suffix include the IEEE-488.2 GPIB and RS-232 computer control feature and a 2m/6ft GPIB cable.
Polarity Options
Positive output polarity
-P
0
A polarity must be specified.
Negative output polarity
-N
0
A polarity must be specified.
Accessory Kits
Recommended accessory kit (AV-HLZ1-100 cable and cable-to-post adapter) -AK9 $944 Option. Recommended cable kit for the output.
Connectivity Options
Ethernet port, for remote control using VXI-11.3, ssh, telnet, and web -VXI $898 Option. Adds a rear-panel Ethernet connector, allowing the instrument to be remotely controlled using the VXI-11.3, ssh (secure shell), telnet, and http (web) protocols. In particular, the VXI-11.3 features allows software like LabView to control an instrument using standard VISA communications drivers and network cabling, instead of using old-style GPIB cabling. (This eliminates the need for a GPIB controller card and its proprietary drivers.)
Miscellaneous Options
Rack Mount Kit -R6 $298 Option. For "3U" height instruments only.
Extra GPIB cable, 1 meter -X1 $49 Option.
Extra GPIB cable, 2 meters -X2 $69 Option.
Extra GPIB cable, 4 meters -X4 $89 Option.
AC Power Cords
Power cord for United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia -AC00 $0 Option. BS 1363, 230V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for Australia, New Zealand -AC01 $0 Option. AS 3112:2000, 230-240V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for Continental Europe, Korea, Indonesia, Russia -AC02 $0 Option. CEE 7/7 Schuko, 230V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for North America, Taiwan -AC03 $0 Option. NEMA 5-15, 120V, 60 Hz.
Power cord for Switzerland -AC06 $0 Option. SEV 1011, 230V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for South Africa, India -AC17 $0 Option. SABS 164-1, 220-250V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for Japan -AC18 $0 Option. JIS 8303, 100V, 50-60 Hz.
Power cord for Israel -AC19 $0 Option. SI 32, 220V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for China -AC22 $0 Option. GB 1002-1, 220V, 50 Hz.
Shipping Case
ATA shipping case -ATA3 $898 Option. Ships the instrument in a heavy-duty ATA-style transport case, instead of the normal cardboard box. It can also serve as a storage case. This option is recommended for shipments outside of North America and Europe, and is mandatory when using a freight-forwarder or when shipping by any method other than FedEx/UPS. It is strongly recommended for all shipments to China. Pelican model 1690 for full-rack-width (17 inch / 430 mm) units, including all -B units. Pelican model 1610 for half-rack-width (8.5 inch / 215 mm) units. This option increases the shipping weight by 45 lbs / 20 kg (1690) or 24 lbs / 11 kg (1610).
