PDD-1600 is probably the most powerful diode driver in the aesthetic world. It provides fast-switching, low-noise, accurate and efficient current for laser diodes. PDD-1600 was developed, first of all, for medical aesthetic treatments, namely, for hair removal, but also have found applications in other medical systems.

By default, the driver has averaged output power up to 1600 W and maximum peak output power up to 10 kW (depending on user defined Imax and Vmax), runs on common 100‑240 V AC, 50/60 Hz, so you don't need extra power supply for the driver. There is a modification available with averaged output power over 2000 W with 200-240 V AC input. Less powerful series are PDD-300 and PDD-1000.

Several variants of PDD-1600 are possible with different maximum output voltage level (Vmax), selected at the moment of order. We would recommend to pick Vmax as close as possible to your diodes operating voltage in order to provide the optimal working mode of the device.

During operation an output current level could be set up in a working range (0 A ‑ Imax) by user, applying a DC voltage to the respective pin.

Since the driver was specially designed for hair removal applications, it is fully compliant to the latest versions of medical standards: IEC 60601-1:2005/AMD1:2012 for electrical safety and IEC 60601-1-2:2014 for EMC, so PDD-1600 can be used in medical systems without any modifications, any additional filtration or additional means of protection.

High reliability and efficiency, easy to integrate OEM design and customizing parameters for tailored solutions make PDD-1600 series an attractive product on the market.
