RS-7 WavemonTM Multi-channel photodiode system with amplitude feedback and real-time wavelength measurement
The Wavelength Monitor System is a multi-channel photodiode system which provides amplitude feedback and real-time wavelength measurements. It consists of three photodiodes each with an independent transimpedance amplifier circuit. Proprietary optical filtering techniques allows for wavelength accuracy of +/-0.25nm and repeatability of +/-0.05nm. The Wavelength Monitor PCBA, photodiodes, and optical filter assembly is temperature stabilized using a Peltier cooler and thermistor in a PID feedback loop. This assembly is a discrete module which can be used with any RS-7 model.
RS-7-IRIS Integrated IRIS with stepper motor control and additional API commands for easy adjustment
The motorized iris for the RS-7-1 is a Variable Output Port Aperture using a built-in, motorized iris. RS-7 Firmware includes iris stepper motor control, and additional API commands are provided for easy adjustment of the iris diameter.
