Control and Supply

The compact, mobile supply units, type LDF (VG Power, VG Flex) and LDM controls and monitors the laser head and its peripheral equipment. All components needed to operate the diode laser, including
the power supply, cooling unit, and control are modular, easily replaceable components.

 

Mobile supply units allow new ways of thinking for location independent redundancy concepts. Thus, a separate spare laser can hedge for several production lasers in case of need. The exchange is carried out in a few minutes by trained staff and preventive maintenance or repair can be carried out without the interruption of the production.

 

More than 70 system data are continuously collected and processed by the system. The integrated failure management works in two stages, allowing the user to react when certain alarm limits are reached before the laser shuts down when error limits are exceeded. In conjunction with the Teleservice Hotline - more than 65% of reported malfunctions can be corrected directly - and the inherent stack management, a high availability of the diode laser system is given.
