Optomechanical Design Software

Lambda Research Corporation (Littleton, MA) has released TracePro® 5.0, the newest version of its optomechanical design software. TracePro 5.0 provides a new interface for modeling optical sources. Users can define and manage spectral data for each unique source and to combine different source types in a single ray trace. New analysis capabilities include flux versus Optical Path Length (OPL) or Time of Flight (TOF). Simulation advances include reverse ray traces and luminance ray traces with blackbody and gray body sources.

Laser Diode Mounting Fixtures

ILX Lightwave Corporation (Bozeman, MT) has released the LDM-49800 series of laser diode mounting fixtures for high-power fiber-coupled laser diodes. The LDM-49800 series consists of two family members that accommodate 2-pin modules and 6-pin, 8-pin, and 14-pin butterfly laser modules. A case temperature control option is available for temperature controlling un-cooled laser diodes over a temperature control range of 15°C to 85°C. The integrated water-cooled heat sink allows the 49800 series to dissipate up to 60W of waste heat.

P356 Low-Pressure Gage

Kavlico, a unit of Custom Sensors & Technologies, Moorpark, CA, has introduced the P356 low-pressure gage/differential pressure sensor for applications requiring an operational life in excess of 10 years. Available in pressure ranges of 0-0.5, 0-1, ±1, 0-3, and 0-5 PSI, the sensor provides a linear amplified voltage output proportional to pressure of 0.5 through 4.5 Vdc from a 5-Vdc regulated power supply. The sensor features a brass housing, a response time of less than 10 msec, and an operating temperature range from -20 to 125ºC. The sensor also includes built-in reverse polarity and over-voltage protection. It employs a ceramic, variable capacitive sensing element and integral ASIC with hybrid circuit. Applications include filter monitoring, pneumatic control, tank level sensing, lead detection, and other rugged industrial applications. For Free Info Click Here.
