The 246 TO-3 Laser Diode Package Mount was designed for high power TO-3 devices, providing excellent heat sinking and easy electrical connection. The electrical laser diode socket comes pre-wired for standard TO-3 pin-outs, so the mount can be up and running in minutes.
The 246 TO-3 Package Mount also has an integrated fan for excellent thermal performance. When using the fixture with a 5300 Series TECSource, the 5300 has a built-in power supply for the fan, or a 2.3mm DC power jack on the side of the mount can be used (a suitable one is available in the accessories list).
The 246 is a post-mounted fixture. A pedestal is included with the laser diode mount array package, but can be removed. ¼-20 and M4 threaded holes on the bottom of the mount can be used with alternate post mounts.
The laser driver and temperature controller connections are made through a DB-9 LDD and a DB-15 TEC connector on the back of the mount, which allows for quick connections to any Arroyo Instruments controllers.
