DDTC: Diode Driver & Temperature Controller
Ice Bloc DDTC is an integrated precision diode driver and temperature controller for building laser-based photonic systems in research, experimental and production applications. Driving the latest generation of high power laser diodes, the DDTC combines high current, low noise output with high accuracy, high resolution current set points.
The temperature controller can control either a TEC or resistive heater with user-programmable output current, current polarity, voltage limits, PID feedback parameters and ramp time. Its compact form factor with customisable software interface allows easy integration of the DDTC with experiments or OEM setups.
Ice Bloc TC is a high-power, precision temperature controller - available with a choice of 1 to 4 independent channels - for performing closed loop control with a temperature sensor and thermoelectric cooler/resistive heater to maintain and set the temperature of laser diodes, reference cavities, non-linear crystals, gratings and other temperature sensitive photonic devices.
Capable of controlling up to four TECs or heaters with set points in the range -70˚C to - 200˚C with a set point resolution of 1mK, Ice Bloc TC is optimised for T25 values from 10kΩ - 100kΩ but can be configured with a wider range.
