ProPhotonix appointed franchised distributor for Panasonic laser diodes in EMEA

ProPhotonix Ltd of Salem, NH, USA, a designer and manufacturer of diode-based laser modules and LED systems for OEMs and medical equipment companies (as well as a distributor of laser diodes for Panasonic, Ushio (formerly Oclaro), Osram, QSI, and Sony), has been appointed as a franchised distributor of Panasonic’s new range of red, infrared and dual-wavelength laser diodes in the European, Middle East, and African (EMEA) region. Samples are available for order from ProPhotonix in first-quarter 2015.

Panasonic’s laser diodes have been designed to reduce size and weight while still exhibiting stable power output at high temperatures. The red (661nm) and infrared (783nm) single-mode, 5.6mm-can packaged laser diodes are available with output powers of 100mW and 200mW, respectively. Applications include inspection, identification and alignment applications.

The 661nm and 783nm wavelengths are also available in several dual-wavelength packages utilizing Panasonic’s proprietary manufacturing technology. Both laser diodes are packaged on a single chip and maintain their respective optical characteristics. They are available in three package types: 5.6mm can, frame package or small frame package. The frame packages are specifically designed to reduce size and weight and operate at up to 85°C. Dual-wavelength packages have applications in sensing, industrial and biomedical equipment.

“These innovative additions to the Panasonic product line strengthen our portfolio of high-quality laser diodes,” says Jeremy Lane, managing director of ProPhotonix Ltd’s Laser business unit. “Where a laser module solution is required, these laser diodes can be integrated into the wide range of ProPhotonix modules as well as custom OEM solutions,” he adds.

“The long-standing relationship between our companies together with the market presence and technical expertise of ProPhotonix will enable us to find many new opportunities in a broad range of applications,” believes Keith Burlison, head of Lighting Solutions, Semiconductor Product Marketing Department, with Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe GmbH, which (PAISEU) manufactures electronic components, devices and modules up to complete solutions, as well as providing production equipment for manufacturing lines.
