Q-MACS Basic

To fulfill the requirements of a lowest noise current generation for driving continuous wave lasers with low current consumption, we specifically developed the Q-MACS Basic CW driver unit. Beside the laser current generation this driver module incorporates a high accurate temperature controller as well. A common laser package for the use with the Q-MACS Basic CW is the HHL (High Heat Load) package. In combination with the heat sink Q-MACS Cube the Q-MACS Basic CW allows the safe operation even for lasers on open mounts, like the C mount.
The Q-MACS Basic CW driver is used as idependent module in laboratory practice, but also as an OEM component in customer own system solutions.


The Q-MACS Basic SC II is a compact, single-channel version of the renowned Q-MACS Basic MC laser driver. It is a robust and versatile laser driver system for various applications with need for intense point sources in the spectral range of the mid-infrared.
The wide range of applications includes the characterization of optical components, as well as absorption spectroscopy using tunable lasers.
For our customers, we configure complete modules including the laser source with well-defined and reproducible spectral and optical properties on the basis of the Q-MACS Basic SC II. Thus, we effectively support an efficient product development and the routined market introduction.


The Q-MACS Basic LH series is an advanced QC Laser driver system for absorption spectroscopic applications. It has nearly the same functionality as the Q-MACS Basic but comes equipped with a very small laser head. The system can be utilized for research and industrial purposes. The laser driver system consists of the compact QC laser head, a power supply and a cable connection. It comes with special control software Q-MACSoft to drive the QCL and to monitor laser parameters.

The Q-MACS Basic MC is a highly developed multi-channel laser controller. It allows to drive up to 8 QCL in pulsed or cw mode simultaneously and provides flexible channel synchronisation features. By its capabilities the driver system ensures the measurement of e.g. up to 8 gas species at different wavenumbers without the risk of feedback loops and with high sensitivity.
