TEC source meter
The Model 2510 TEC Source Meter is designed for test and control of the TEC portion of laser-diode modules. The Model 2510 features a 50-W source and a software-based, digital temperature-control loop, with typical stability to within ±0.005°C of set point.
TEC source meter
The Model 2510 TEC Source Meter is designed for test and control of the TEC portion of laser-diode modules. The Model 2510 features a 50-W source and a software-based, digital temperature-control loop, with typical stability to within ?0.005?C of set point. The Model 2510 supports a variety of temperature sensors. Four-wire source/measure for thermistors and RTDs enhance measurement accuracy. An ac ohm function has been incorporated to enable more accurate testing of the TEC Peltier heater/cooler. The unit is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for one year and carries the CE mark.
