Ilmars Celmins  (posted 2022-11-14 14:10:38.737)
I purchased the CPS1 battery pack and two PL202 laser modules, planning to plug both lasers into the battery pack. However, this doesn't work because the laser USB connectors are too wide to fit side by side (or the battery pack ports are too close together, depending on how you look at it). Not happy. I guess I'll need to buy some kind of USB extension cable or adapter, which will take months and hundreds of dollars due to government purchasing efficiency. Any other suggestions?

5 VDC External Battery Pack

  • Portable USB Battery Pack with 5 VDC and up to 2 A Output
  • Compatible with CPS Laser Modules and USB-Powered Devices
  • 10 000 mAh Capacity

Thorlabs offers the CPS1 Battery Pack for powering our CPS laser modules and other USB-powered devices. The CPS1 battery pack outputs 5 VDC at up to 2 A, and offers 10 000 mAh capacity. A fully charged CPS1 battery pack can power any CPS laser module for at least 36 hours of continuous operation. The pack includes a USB-to-Micro-USB cable for charging and a custom USB-to-Phono cable for powering the CPS laser module. To activate the battery, simply push the power button once. The pack may be charged using standard 5 V USB chargers for portable devices or using a computer USB port. While the battery pack is charging, it can still supply power to an attached laser module.

The CPS1 Battery Pack also includes an LED flashlight adjacent to the micro-USB port. The flashlight is activated and deactivated by holding the power for two seconds.

When connecting the CPS Diode Module, the module and adapter should be connected first. Then the adapter cable should be plugged into the isolated power supply to avoid a short circuit in the phono jack. Please note that the USB adapter included with this battery pack is not intended to be used with power supplies that are not current-limited or isolated from ground, such as some computers or laptops.

Please note: Due to shipping restrictions for lithium ion cells, the CPS1 battery pack is not available for purchase in certain countries. In countries where it is available, the battery pack must be shipped separately using specifically regulated shipping methods and may require special shipping and handling charges. Our sales team is available to answer additional questions concerning the shipment of this battery pack.

80 - 264 V, 1.8 A Max, 47 - 63 Hz
  • USB Controller Hubs for up to Three or Six K-Cubes or
    T-Cubes
  • Provide Power and Communication with a Single USB Cable and a Single Power Connection
  • Adapter Plate Connects T-Cube to Hub

These USB Controller Hubs have been designed specifically with multiple K-Cube and T-Cube operation in mind. The hub vastly reduces the number of USB and power cables required when operating multiple K-Cubes or T-Cubes. Furthermore, a USB output connector can be connected to the USB input on another unit, allowing multiple Controller Hubs to be connected together while still only using a single USB cable from the host control PC.

The hub draws a maximum current of 10 A; please verify that the cubes being used do not require a total current of more than 10 A.

The KCH301 and KCH601 Controller Hubs are compatible with all K-Cube and T-Cube modules. A KAP101 or KAP102 Adapter Plate (sold separately) is required for each T-Cube to operate on the controller hub. The KAP101 is designed to adapt 60 mm wide T-Cubes to the hubs, while the KAP102 is designed to adapt 120 mm wide T-Cubes to the hubs.

For more information on the USB Controller Hubs, see the full web presentation.
