-The AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT is generated from integrating the SERVO OUTPUT. ​ Its purpose is to supply a correction signal to drive the SERVO OUTPUT to zero. When used with Vescent DBR lasers and the D2-105 Laser Controller, the AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT can be connected to the TEMP SERVO IN to adjust the laser diode temperature to keep the feedback laser current constant. Similarly, AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT can drive a PZT on an external-cavity laser diode to keep the laser diode current constant. See [[d2:​laser_servo#​Aux Gain: + / Aux Gain - (2-position switch)|AUXILIARY SERVO: GAIN SIGN]] and [[d2:​laser_servo#​Auxiliary Servo: Gain (25-turn trimpot)|AUXILIARY SERVO: GAIN]] for information on setting the gain and and gain sign of the AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT.+The AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT is generated from integrating the SERVO OUTPUT. ​ Its purpose is to supply a correction signal to drive the SERVO OUTPUT to zero.

-This 2-position slider switch is only accessible by removing the right side panel (see above) and sets whether the ramp is applied to the SERVO OUTPUT or the AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT. It is factory set in the Ramp->​Servo position. When the Ramp->​Servo is selected, the ramp is a ~500Hz triangle wave and when Ramp->​Aux is selected the ramp is ~50Hz. Additionally,​ when using The Absolute Jump TTL or the Relative Jump TTL, the output jump is placed on the same channel as gets the ramp signal. The other signal (SERVO OUTPUT or AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT) is held at its current value. ​+This 2-position slider switch is only accessible by removing the right side panel (see above) and sets whether the ramp is applied to the SERVO OUTPUT or the AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT.

 If you are having problems locking the laser, it is a good idea to not use the AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT as this complicates the system. Once you get the locking to work properly, you can reconnect this cable. If you are having problems locking the laser, it is a good idea to not use the AUXILIARY SERVO OUTPUT as this complicates the system.
