Introduction
The TXP5000 Series is a powerful photonic test & measurement platform that bridges the gap between the research community and the industrial test and measurement market. The 4 slot, USB controlled TXP5004 provides the basis for a modularized benchtop test and measurement unit while the 16 slot Ethernet controlled TXP5016 provides scalable testing for the industrial community. The TXP5001AD Adapter allows the operation of one TXP module directly linked to a computer via the USB interface. The plug and play modules include integrated laser drivers and TEC controllers, DWDM DFB laser sources, a tunable laser, and an advanced polarimetry control and measurement. All modules are interchangeable and can be integrated with LabVIEW™ and LabWindows™/CVI control. The TXP platform is operated and configured by a PC.

Modular Design
The TXP5000 Series is a scalable cost effective test and measurement platform. The intelligent card concept provides great flexibility for the combination of plugable modules to meet the desired functionality. One aspect is the concept of Advanced Card Pooling that allows to group different modules into card pools controlled via high level command parameter for complex and application specific setups. For more info about the architecture, please see Architecture Tab.

Operation
Due to the “hot plug feature” any module can be replaced without interrupting other running processes of the same mainframe. All TXP5000 modules provide standard user interfaces that allow the operation of each module by the connected PC, like using a benchtop device, with easy automation and remote control facilities. All TXP5000 chassis offer TCP/IP support that eases remote control over a network.

Single Module Adapter TXP5001AD
The TXP5001AD is a low cost adapter for any module designed for the TXP5000 system. It provides a USB interface and allows a single module to be operated without any additional equipment except a PC. The adapter provides connection to the user PC via the included USB cable and comes with the TXP5000 software installation package, including LabVIEW™ and LabWindows/CVI™ drivers, similar to the TXP5004 chassis. The adapter offers the easiest and most cost effective way to start using the modulesof the TXP5000 Series. A 48V power supply is included, which operates from 100 to 240 VAC, 50 to 60 Hz.

Interlock
The TXP chassis provide global interlocks to secure set-ups involving the TXP against external events, like opening of lab-doors, pushing of emergency switches, etc. The reaction of the TXP depends on the type of card inserted. Besides the global interlock, some TXP cards have an individual interlock line.

TXP5016 Architecture

TXP5004 Architecture

Advanced Card Pooling
Different modules can be grouped into card pools and controlled via high level command parameters. This allows one to build complex and application specific setups with simplified operation and reduced data transmission at the same time. Using specialized software modules, new “devices” can be made from the same set of TX5000 modules, the PMD5000 system for example. The PMD5000 is a high performance and very flexible PMD/PDL analyzation system based on the tunable laser module ECL5000D, the polarization controller module DPC5500, and the polarimeter modules IPM5300 or PAX5700.

Software for the TXP5000 Platform

Use this link to download the following software packages:

The available software is organized into the following categories:

  1. Applications: Standard application software packages and graphical user interfaces. This is what most users need to operate the device for typical applications.
  2. Drivers: Instrument drivers for the National Instruments™, LabWindows™/CVI, and LabVIEW™ development environments. These are intended for developers who want to extend or adapt the functionality of the device to their special requirements.
  3. Firmware: Low level software for the internal operation of the device. This should be updated to the newest version available to guarantee optimal performance. Please see the Operating Manual for information on how to update the firmware of your device.

The TXP5000 platform is designed to build customized and automated solutions for complex test & measurement applications. The special system architecture and the Card Pooling feature allow a setup of different modules to behave like a single system performing complex tasks.

A few examples:

  • PMD5000 Series: System to analyze Polarization Mode Dispersion PMD in buried fibers (see PMD5000 Series product page)
  • Laser Diode Burn-In Systems: System to burn-in and test many laser diodes simultaneously
  • Mueller and Jones Matrix Analyzing System: System to determine the polarization of devices by analyzing the Mueller and Jones matrices based on the PAX5700 Polarimeter.

This is a response from Thomas at Thorlabs. Thank you very much for your inquiry. The devices NI PXIe-4844 are not compatible with our TXP System. Unfortunately, we can't provide an alternative for this Optical Sensor Interrogator for Fiber Bragg Gratings.

Dear staff member of the thorlabs company, I'm a PhD student in the University of Nottingham in the Faculty of Engineering. I'm writing because I would like to know whether the TXP5016 chassis could be use with an Optical Sensor Interrogator for Fiber Bragg Gratings (like the NI PXIe-4844 from National Instruments). I also would like to know if you could offer me a solution from thorlabs.

A response from Julien at Thorlabs: Dear Dian, to control a TXP5000 ITC card the TXP-ITC instrument driver has to be installed. This instrument driver library provides programming support for a variety of development environments including NI-LabVIEW, NI-LabWindows/CVI, Microsoft Visual Studio and a lot more. Basically the instrument driver consists of a DLL file and some support files. The driver can be found on the installation CD that is delivered together with the unit. Upon installation, a list of shortcuts, including the programmer reference manual, is installed in the start menu.

Thorlabs Techsupport, I am writing for ask how to control laser temperature scanning using ITC5102. My lab bought Thorlabs’ ITC5102 to control a DFB laser. The temperature could be controlled by your GUI, but what I need is to control laser temperature scanning in a range. I think that the TXP5016 could be controlled by computer by computer through LAN or RS232. However, the operation manual about programming interface of TXP5016 is too simple. Do you have any application notes or advice about it, please email me. Looking forward your reply Dian Fan Center for Photonics Technology Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Virginia Tech
