Data Presentation

CBME80B has outputs for different types of display and recording units. An RS-232 and RS-485 interface supports local control, test and data acquisition. For remote control and data acquisition there is a built-in FSK modem.


A built-in test system indicates failures in the event of a malfunction. The electronics are located in three easily replaceable subunits, i.e. a power unit with an EMI unit included, a master printed circuit board and a power sensor board.

The subunits, as well as the laser diode and the avalanche diode, which are placed on the master circuit board, can be replaced without realignment.
