Product Details

TSI's PDM 1000-3 Photodetector Module combines an interchangeable optics block, called the light bar, with high-sensitivity photodetectors for maximum ease-of-use and highest performance operation. The ultra-sensitive photodetectors exploit the latest advances in PMT technology to convert the scattered light to electrical signals.

The PDM system requires no alignment. The user simply connects the receiving fibers to the PDM 1000-3 light bar. Scattered light from the receiving fibers is separated by wavelength, with custom dichroics and other optics, eliminating color contamination but maximizing throughput. This is a key factor in maximizing the third-component (violet) data rate in 3D systems.

The individual channel outputs are available for connection to the signal processor.

The photodetector voltage is controlled and monitored via software to optimize the signal quality. A built-in control circuit prevents saturation of the photomultiplier tubes. The PDM 1000-3 also includes an optional 12-bit A/D converter used to measure pedestal amplitude, as the basis for the patented TSI Intensity Validation technique.
