The CONEX family of photonics control instruments includes the CONEX-CC motor controller/driver for Newport’s low-power DC servo motor stages or actuators; the CONEX-PSD9, a position-sensing detector that provides accurate XY position information of laser beams for laser beam stabilization, laser tracking, and general beam diagnostics; and the CONEX-IOD, a general purpose I/O module that works with many third-party devices and features both digital and 12-bit analog input/output interfaces. All instruments connect via a single USB port.
Newport Introduces Affordable, Compact and
Simple Photonics Control Devices
Irvine, CA – March 23, 2010 – Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces the affordable, CONEX™ family of compact, photonics control instruments. The product family features three new devices that connect easily via USB plug-and-play technology and allow simple, but highly functional PC-computer control solutions. Multiple units can be connected to a single USB port and for CONEX-PSD9 and CONEX-IOD models, the USB port also powers the modules, eliminating the need for additional power supplies and/or cables. The intuitive LabVIEW-based utility program software provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for each module. A comprehensive set of LabVIEW VIs (virtual instruments) is also available.
Three models are initially introduced. The first, the CONEX-CC motor controller/driver is a very compact, low-cost motor controller/driver for Newport’s low-power DC servo motor stages or actuators. The CONEX-PSD9, a position-sensing detector, provides accurate XY position information of laser beams and is ideally suited for laser beam stabilization, laser tracking and general beam diagnostics. The third, the CONEX-IOD, is a highly versatile, general purpose I/O module that works with many third party devices and features both digital input/outputs and 12-bit analog input/output interfaces.
Newport’s easy-to-use CONEX photonics instruments are ideal for tasks that require an affordable solution when the use of a computer-controlled system is specified. For more information, please visit: www.newport.com/CONEX.
