The Power Supply is a quiet, linear power supply providing +/-15V and 5V. It is in a separate box to isolate 60 Hz and EM interference. One power supply can power two complete laser systems, or four electronics modules.
Note: All modules designed to be operated in laboratory environment
|Environmental Temperature||>15°C and <30°C|
|Environmental Dew Points||<15°C|
The monitor section contains three blue status LEDs indicating proper voltage on the +15,-15, and 5V power lines. If there is a voltage sag on any of the power lines, the blue status LED will turn off.
Power I/O (9-pin D-sub)
Always turn off the D2-005, make connections to the device, and then re-energize the D2-005. Never connect this D2-005 Power Supply to a device when it is switched on and supplying power.
If you are considering using an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to guarantee operation of your Vescent products through a brown out or black out, great care should be taken in choosing the model. Lower cost models tend to produce modified square wave voltage profiles. The high-frequency components of such a voltage profile may interact poorly with the D2-005 (and down-stream active Vescent modules). If you do choose to use a UPS, select a model that will provide a sine wave voltage profile without higher harmonic components to avoid potential damage to your high-value equipment.
The power to each electronics module is through a 9-pin D-sub connector through a power bridge unit. The unit can also be powered through any serial cable with 9-pin D-sub connectors, which is convenient when the unit must be taken out of line for access to the side panels. The pin outs are shown in the following figure:
