Laser Burn-In Racks

Single-Bay Rack (Small Footprint)
Multi-Bay Rack

The sky is the limit with our burn-in racks. We have standard models, but if you want something special, we’re up for the challenge!

Our burn-in racks are optimized for the application. The ultimate layout of the rack will depend upon several options:

Rack Format:

We have 3 rack formats:

  • Single-Bay (Small footprint) - Optimized to take up the minimum floor space.
  • Double-Bay - Supports many more devices than a single-bay rack
  • Multi-Bay - Similar to the double-bay racks except even more devices can be run.

Products Supported:

Our burn-in racks can be configured to support:

  • Fiber-coupled and uncoupled laser diodes
  • Passively and actively-cooled devices
  • Single emitters, bars, and stacks
  • Lensed or unlensed devices
  • CW or pulsed devices or recipes
  • High-current (>300A) and high-voltage (>80V) devices
  • A mix of all of the above

Measurements Supported:

  • Device current (standard)
  • Device voltage (standard)
  • Cooling water input & output temperature (standard)
  • Cooling water flow rate (optional)
  • Cooling water input & output pressure (optional)
  • Fiber boot temperature (optional, fiber-coupled devices only)
  • Optical output (optional)
  • Wavelength (optional)
  • Custom measurement types as specified by customer (optional)

Other Features:

  • Multi-Step Recipes (standard): This allows a burn-in recipe to have multiple steps with varying parameters for maximum burn-in flexibility.
  • Multiple Interlocks (standard): These protect both the devices and the rack in the event of an illegal operating condition.
  • On-The-Fly Device Dropout (optional): This allows a single device in a string of devices to be dropped out of the burn-in if the device’s critical parameters go outside the acceptable range.
  • Optical Power Interlock (optional): This quickly cuts the power supply output if the device optical power goes below a critical level.  This prevents the device from destroying itself and allows for diagnostics or rework.  It is available for both pulsed and CW operation.

We have the right solution for you.
