BOZEMAN, Montana, December 2011 – ILX Lightwave Corporation is proud to introduce the LDT-5910C Thermoelectric Temperature Controller. The LDT-5910C features 32W of temperature control, an intuitive front panel, and long term temperature stability of ±0.002°C. The LDT-5910C is a direct replacement for the popular LDT-5910B Thermoelectric Temperature Controller.

This new temperature controller incorporates a low noise, bi-polar current output with digital PID control loop for temperature control of laser diodes and other optoelectronic devices. For wavelength sensitive or other high stability applications, the LDT-5910C provides a long term stability of ±0.002°C. For fast setup, the LDT-5910C incorporates preset PID values and a fast auto tune PID mode that automatically determines optimal PID values. The LDT-5910C is compatible with a wide range of sensors including thermistors, RTDs, LM335 and AD590 IC sensors. A new linearized thermistor sensor mode allows the LDT-5910C to achieve ±0.2°C temperature accuracy over a wide temperature range from -30°C to 85°C with standard 10KΩ thermistor. Interlocks allow the user to connect the LDT-5910C to a laser diode driver and will disable the laser output if the LDT-5910C is disabled or is over the user configurable temperature limit.

An additional feature of the LDT-5910C is an analog voltage input for temperature sweeping or tuning without using a remote interface or front panel control. The LDT-5910C includes USB 2.0 and IEEE 488.1 GPIB interfaces for remote instrument operation in R&D or manufacturing environments. The new instrument’s remote commands are compatible with the LDT-5910B, so that customers can replace existing LDT-5910B’s with the new LDT-5910C without the need for reprogramming. LabVIEW® drivers for the LDT-5910C are available for download from the ILX Lightwave website.
