Features

  • Easy-to-Use LED Driver
  • 3 Operation Modes:
    • Constant Current Mode
    • Modulation Mode
    • Trigger Mode
  • Compact T-Cube Footprint
  • Pulse Width and Frequency Control via External 0-5 V Signal
  • Adjustable LED Current Limit
  • Includes One CAB-LEDD1 Cable (Additional Cables Available Separately Below)

The LEDD1B driver is designed to drive high-power LEDs with currents up to 1200 mA. It features an adjustable LED current limit to protect the connected LED. The output current can be limited by a trim potentiometer on the front of the unit, thereby ensuring the output current does not exceed the limit regardless of the other settings or the modulation input voltage.

The LEDD1B driver offers three operation modes: constant current mode, trigger mode, and modulation mode. The trigger and modulation modes are controlled by an external voltage in the 0 to 5 V range. When in the modulation mode, the LED current output exactly follows the amplitude and waveform of the input signal independent of the knob settings on the top of the T-Cube control unit. In trigger mode the output current switches to the level that has been selected by the knob on the top of module as soon as a threshold voltage is reached. This can be used for pulse width modulation (PWM). The threshold voltage is fixed and cannot be changed by the user. The operation mode can be changed by a switch next to the current selector knob.

The LEDD1B has the same compact form factor as other T-Cube modules, and thus, it integrates well into the platform. It is shipped attached to a removable base plate, which allows the T-Cube to be easily secured to an optical table. To attach the LEDD1B unit to a T-Cube controller hub, the base plate must be removed to reveal the T-Cube hub connector. Although the T-Cube hub can be used to power the LEDD1B, this driver does not support remote operations via the USB 2.0 hub interface.

Power Supply Options

The preferred power supply (i.e., single channel, multi-channel, or hub-based) depends on the end user's application and whether you already own compatible power supplies. To that end and in keeping with Thorlabs' green initiative, we do not ship these units bundled with a power supply. This avoids the cost and inconvenience of receiving an unwanted single channel supply if a multi-channel or hub-based system would be more appropriate. The power supply options compatible with the LEDD1 LED Driver are listed in the table below.

Warning!

The LEDD1B are designed for high brightness LEDs only; The LED current limit has to be adjusted by the trim pot on the front of the LEDD1B so that the maximum current of the connected LED will not be exceeded. The available range for this limit is 200 to 1200 mA.

For our application, stability of the light source is of the highest importance. Please can you tell me if intensity stability of the LEDs is primarily dictated by the LED itself (we're looking to use the 530 nm LED) or the LED driver. How do the four available LED drivers compare in terms of stability? We were assuming the parameter "current accuracy" will determine stability, is this assumption correct? Thanks, Stephen.

This is a response from Thomas at Thorlabs. Thank you very much for your inquiry. We can provide different kinds of drivers. The LEDD1B is a switching driver and shows ripple in the output current which can be as high as 20%. The DC4100 is a linear driver and the main advantages of such a driver is low output current ripple and its EMC compatibility. These drivers are applicable for fluorescence microscopy. The DC2100 is a combination of linear and switching drivers, this method combines the advantage of both principles. A detailed description can be found in the manual of the LEDD1B at section 5.1 LED Driver. The parameter current accuracy does not indicate how stable the drivers are. I will contact you directly with more detailed information.

a response from Julien at thorlabs: We checked and could indeed measure that pulses down to at least 5µs could be obtained with the DC2100 at a rep. rate of 10kHz and for a LED current of 1400mA.

A response from Julien at Thorlabs to Adamt: when operated in pulsed mode, the LEDD1 has a minimum pulse width of 50µs. We are currently checking if the DC2100 can be brought to achieve 5µs pulses. We will get the test results within one or two weeks. I will contact you directly to discuss the specific details and requirements of your application.

The ON/OFF time is listed as <25 microseconds. Do you have an idea of the shortest pulse widths possible? I am looking for an about 5 microsecond LED "flash"

I had to search for the pin out diagram for the driver, this is pretty basic information that would best be given on the Overview tab. Also it is hard to understand all the different LED drivers offered by Thorlabs, can you add a selection guide and some links to thread them all together.

The preferred power supply (i.e., single channel, multi-channel, or hub-based) for your LEDD1B driver depends on your application and whether you already own compatible power supplies. Thus, Thorlabs does not prebundle a power supply with your LED driver purchase.

The LEDD1B can be powered using either a TPS001 power supply or the TCH002 T-Cube Hub and Power Supply. The TPS001, which powers a single T-Cube, plugs into a standard wall outlet and provides +15 VDC. The TCH002 Hub and Power Supply consists of two parts: the hub, which can support up to six standard-footprint T-cubes, and a power supply that plugs into a standard wall outlet and powers the hub, which in turn powers all the T-cubes connected to the hub. Although the T-Cube hub can be used to power the LEDD1B, the LED controllers do not support remote operations via the USB 2.0 hub interface.
