Vue-HV Series Overview
The VueMetrix Vue-HV series of water-cooled laser diode stack controllers are a compact yet powerful solution for demanding OEM applications. With drive currents up to 120A and compliance voltages up to 24V this powerful package incorporates all the required laser diode safety and monitoring features. The compact size of the drive electronics makes the Vue-HV ideal for OEM applications in solid-state laser pumping, materials processing, military and medical systems.

The Vue-HV series of laser diode drivers are computer controlled via RS-232 or USB and come standard with WinVue user interface software. The onboard firmware monitors the operation of the controller and the safety of the laser diode at all times, allowing the Vue-HV to be an embedded part of a larger system or to be the stand-alone system controller. Custom firmware options for OEM customers are available.

With WinVue software the user to do more than just control the laser diode. It is equipped with tools to aid both the researcher in R&D and production engineers in manufacturing. Software tools like data logging with one-click data export, LIV acquisition, power calibration, user-settable power and current limits, and the ability to visualize all control settings are there to help designers shorten the product development cycle.

When its time to incorporate the Vue-HV driver into your system, all of the functions of the user interface software are available through a complete library of RS-232 commands. The Vueseries drivers can also help lower your manufacturing costs by automating system setup and test.
