The Powerlite Series of high energy YAG lasers is known for its beam quality, reliability, and ease of use. The New DLS (Digital Laser Source) Series remains consistent with the Amplitude approach to laser design, keeping the features that have made it so popular, and adding new capabilities to enhance its performance and utility. The DLS power supply is compact and quiet, taking up half the space of the one it replaces. The components are modular and rack mounted to simplify maintenance and service. It uses distributed intelligence, with microprocessors in both the laser head and power supply. Communications from the head to the supply are digital and much more reliable than TTL and analog inputs. A new cooling group with active digital control has been added for more accurate monitoring of pump chamber temperatures. Better water management to the laser head lowers pump chamber operating temperatures for improved performance and reliability.
The complete control of all functionality is made possible through a digital interface, thus eliminating the need for knobs or switches.
A powerful Windows®-based Graphical User Interface is standard for all Powerlite DLS systems. An optional touch screen remote control is available, as are LabView drivers.
