The DCLM is a digitally-controlled laser diode module that allows you to program and control the laser output via a USB interface using software developed by Global Laser.

The USB interface provides you with multiple power supply options including a PC, USB hub, or USB adapter plug. This allows you to save space by eliminating the need for bulky external power supplies.

You don’t need a function generator to modulate the DCLM. Its market-leading control circuit has a built-in function generator, and software is included free-of-charge. As a result, you can control the laser output in five distinct modes:

1. Continuous Wave (CW). Adjust the output power from 0-100%.
2. Sine wave modulation.
3. Triangle wave modulation.
4. Square wave modulation with fixed 50/50 duty cycle. Equivalent to TTL mode.
5. Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) with variable duty cycle.

Suitable for system integration, the DCLM software can be used to save laser output settings. The module then replicates your saved settings on power up without the need for a PC.

A DLL is available for you to interface the DCLM with software for cameras, detectors, and other devices. By calling a DLL function you can modify the laser output in real-time within your own C/C++, Python, MATLAB, LabView, or other application. The DCLM software, including the DLL, is compatible with 32 bit and 64 bit platforms for Windows 7, 8.1 & 10 operating systems.

DCLM control technology is available with various wavelengths, powers, and lens options in 6 flagship Global Laser products: Lyte-MV, Lyte-MV 2, Acculase, Premier, Varillite, and FiberLyte. A Development Kit is also available. Please refer to each module’s datasheet for detailed specifications.
