399nm Space AOM  Series

Acousto optic modulator is a kind of photoelectric product that uses the principle of acousto-optic interaction to modulate the laser intensity and shift the frequency. Its rate control and modulated light intensity far exceed the mechanical shutter. The wavelength range is from the ultraviolet region to the mid-infrared region. The use of the recommended supporting driver can achieve the best performance and more application options.

N-type Acousto Optic Driver

A typical RF driver comprises an RF oscillator, a modulation circuit, and a power amplifier. It produces RF signals utilized for generating sound waves within the crystals of the AO device. The modulation and strength of the RF signal dictate the extent of modulation, deflection, or tuning of the beam. This acousto-optic driver enables both digital and analog modulation of the beam, along with frequency shifting capabilities. With efficient heat dissipation and reliable performance, the driver ensures stability when paired with compatible acousto-optic devices.

Supporting DriveModel (SGXXXX-33-N-ab): For the frequency shift function, designate “Y,” and for the modulation function, designate “T.” In the code, “XXX” represents the operating frequency, where “33” corresponds to RF output power. The “N” signifies the package type. Regarding power supply voltage, use “1” for 24V and “2” for 12V. Lastly, for modulation, use “D” for digital TTL modulation and “A” for analog modulation.
