PID 110

Versatile PID Regulator

    • Ideally suited for side-of-fringe laser stabilization
    • P, I, D parameters individually adjustable
    • Variable total gain
    • High Voltage output e.g. for driving piezos
    • Automatic ReLock feature

    The PID 110 is a proportional-integral-differential regulator for frequency stabilization of tunable diode lasers (DL pro, DL 100, DL DFB). It accomplishes side-of-fringe locking to the slope of an atomic line or a cavity transmission peak. The module works both for HV (piezo actuators) and LV (laser current) control tasks. Users can adjust all relevant parameters, including P, I and D contributions, set point and regulator output range.
