Keithley 2510 TEC SourceMeter, ±10VDC and ±5ADC


In stock

SKU: LN588 Category:


The 2510 was built for control of Peltier or thermoelectric cooling particularly of laser diodes use in telecom, however it will do equally well in anywhere PID feed back control of a process parameter is required. Unit can be supplied with 2510-AT autotuning capability (autotuning of the 3 PID constants) where desired. If interested please inquire. If using to drive a resistive heater a series diode is required. Send us your application and we’ll be glad to test. Tested and guaranteed.
This instrument can be delivered with a fresh calibration at additional cost. See details here. Please inquire if interested.
We offer a 5-day right of refusal as well as 90-day warranty against defects. Complete terms can be found here.

OEM Description

The Models 2510 and 2510-AT TEC SourceMeter instruments enhance Keithley’s CW (Continuous Wave) test solution for high speed LIV (light-current-voltage) testing of laser diode modules. These 50W bipolar instruments were developed in close cooperation with leading manufacturers of laser diode modules for fiberoptic telecommunications networks. Designed to ensure tight temperature control for the device under test, the Model 2510 was the first in a line of highly specialized instruments created for telecommunications laser diode testing. It brings together Keithley’s expertise in high speed DC sourcing and measurement with the ability to control the operation of a laser diode module’s Thermo-Electric Cooler or TEC (sometimes called a Peltier device) accurately.
The Model 2510-AT expands the capability of the Model 2510 by offering autotuning capability. P, I, and D (proportional, integral, and derivative) values for closed loop temperature control are determined by the instrument using a modified Zeigler-Nichols algorithm. This eliminates the need for users to determine the optimal values for these coefficients experimentally. In all other respects, the Model 2510 and Model 2510-AT provide exactly the same set of features and capabilities.

The SourceMeter Concept
The Model 2510 and Model 2510-AT draw upon Keithley’s unique SourceMeter concept, which com- bines precision voltage/current sourcing and measurement functions into a single instrument. SourceMeter instruments provide numerous advantages over the use of separate instruments, includ- ing lower acquisition and maintenance costs, the need for less rack space, easier system integration and programming, and a broad dynamic range.
