The LightHUB+® Plug&Play laser light engines can be equipped with up to six DPSS or diode lasers of different wavelengths in a compact and rugged design. Wavelengths between 375nm and 1550nm and optical output powers up to 300mW per laser line are possible. The LightHUB+ can be purchased with the required lasers at time of purchase, and later upgraded by the end user by adding new wavelengths as required, up to the maximum. Pre-assembled upgrade-kits consisting of the laser head. optical combiner block and an interface card can be installed at any time. The fibre output can be equipped with single mode polarisation maintaining fibres or Multimode fibres with various output connectors or collimators, providing beam diameters from 0.7mm. Six individual Analog and Digital Modulation Inputs as well as RS-232 and USB interfaces are incorporated into the system for convenient control inputs. The system is designed to be either passively or actively cooled. By mounting it on an optical table or thicker breadboard, passive cooling is possible. Should the system be operated on a non-conducting work surface, the optional active cooling unit with temperature controlled fans can be attached to the base.
Each LightHUB+ laser light engine is delivered with the Omicron Control Centre (OCC) – Laser Control Software. The software can control multiple lasers and offers a Master section which controls all lasers in parallel. The OCC can be used for daily use or just for configuring the laser for computer independent operation once.
