PI-4880 Floodbeam Optical Test Head is a transportable, turnkey subsystem that provides a
controlled optical flux and temperature environment test head for the testing of IR
Detectors and Focal Plane Arrays. Modular design and host of options allow a maximum of
configuration flexibility at a minimum cost. Ergonomic design and user friendly software
maximizes test throughput and minimizes set-up time.
subsystem consists of a console including power distribution, a
radiation flux source assembly, an optical box assembly and optional
accessories such as a dewar assembly, dewar temperature monitor and
controller. The system also includes control software and can be
controlled by our PI-DATS software.
The test head is mounted in a standard minirack console assembly. Wheels
allow for portability, and jack screws are included to support the system while in
operation. The rack requires single 30 Amp, 115 VAC service. The power distribution
concept is designed for maximum personnel and equipment safety. This includes ground fault
interruption, emergency power off protection and AC power interlocks. Two grounds are made
available within the test head; an analog ground associated with the optical and dewar
portion of the test head and digital ground attached to the control and CPU components.
