Can I use my optical head with a different controller than it came with?
December 4th, 2009
Yes, but it will require recalibration. The PEM is a resonant device, with the resonant frequency being determined by the size of the optical assembly. In spite of very tight manufacturing tolerances, each optical assembly is slightly different in size and this results in a slightly different frequency. The controller, electronic head, and optical head are all calibrated to work together as one resonant circuit. Changing the controller would change this precise calibration and PEM performance can no longer be guaranteed. If you have further questions, please Contact Us.
