American electronics manufacturer Newport has announced the release of a precision controller using laser-diodes for "current and temperature control".
The Model 6100 is said to be suitable for "all demanding laboratory applications", according to Laboratorytalk, with the current supply range of 500-1,500 mA as well as providing the user with a 32 W temperature control.
Its two large, seven-segment displays can offer the user clear current and temperature readings.
Newport claims the bench-top instrument offers "easy navigation" of functions and settings due to the four-line alpha-numeric menu system the Model 6100 possesses.
In addition, the product's driver is claimed to be compatible with many of Newport's mounts and accessories that use laser-diodes.
Newport has been involved in making high-precision electronic instruments for more than 40 years, supplying both scientific and industrial sectors.
The company, based in California, quickly built a reputation as a consistent provider of some of the most accurate industrial and process control instruments.
