Newport Introduces Affordable, Compact and Simple Photonics Control Devices

(PresseBox) (Darmstadt, ) Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces the affordable, CONEX(TM) family of compact, photonics control instruments. The product family features three new devices that connect easily via USB plugandplay technology and allow simple, but highly functional PCcomputer control solutions. Multiple units can be connected to a single USB port and for CONEX-PSD9 and CONEX-IOD models, the USB port also powers the modules, eliminating the need for additional power supplies and/or cables. The intuitive LabVIEWbased utility program software provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for each module. A comprehensive set of LabVIEW VIs (virtual instruments) is also available.

Three models are initially introduced. The first, the CONEX-CC motor controller/driver is a very compact, lowcost motor controller/driver for Newport's lowpower DC servo motor stages or actuators. The CONEX-PSD9, a positionsensing detector, provides accurate XY position information of laser beams and is ideally suited for laser beam stabilization, laser tracking and general beam diagnostics. The third, the CONEX-IOD, is a highly versatile, general purpose I/O module that works with many third party devices and features both digital input/outputs and 12bit analog input/output interfaces.

Newport's easytouse CONEX photonics instruments are ideal for tasks that require an affordable solution when the use of a computercontrolled system is specified. For more information, please visit:
