Luna - T‑Gauge® Control Unit (TCU)

Luna - T‑Gauge® Control Unit (TCU)
  • The T‑Gauge® Control Unit (TCU) is the central component of the T‑Gauge® family of products and serves as the source of the optical and electrical signals necessary to generate and detect terahertz. The TCU also transforms analog data into a digital signal that can be analyzed using the onboard processor and interacts with the wide variety of THz accessories.
  • The TCU is a 19 inch (483 mm) rack, wall, or table mountable instrument, consisting of an ultrafast laser, high-speed optical delay, ranging optical delay, power supplies, and signal conditioning electronics, with connectors for convenient interfacing to various optical and electronic components. The high-speed delay included in the TCU can be chosen from a number of delay length and speed options. When utilized in conjunction with T-Gauge® accessories, the TCU enables the user to generate and detect pulsed terahertz energy for a wide variety of measurements.

The T‑Ray® 5000 Control Unit (TCU) is the central component of all the TeraMetrix products including the T‑Gauge® Sensor configuration and serves the following functions:

Generates the optical and electrical signals necessary to transmit and detect terahertz (THz) pulses if the TCU is connected to THz accessories; Transforms analog data into a digital signal that can be analyzed using the onboard processor.

The TCU is a 19 inch (483 mm) rack, wall, or table mountable instrument, consisting of an ultrafast laser, high-speed optical delay, ranging optical delay, power supplies, and signal conditioning electronics, with connectors for convenient interfacing to various optical and electronic components. The high-speed delay included in the TCU can be chosen from a number of delay length and speed options. A partial list of possible options includes:

  • 320 ps delay with a 100 Hz acquisition rate (TCU5210)
  • 80 ps delay with a 1000 Hz acquisition rate (TCU5211)
  • 160 ps delay with a 1000 Hz acquisition rate (TCU5212)
  • 700 ps delay with a 100 Hz acquisition rate (TCU5213)

When utilized in conjunction with T-Gauge accessories, the TCU enables the user to generate and detect pulsed terahertz energy.

TCU options are available for external digital inputs, outputs and encoders, or a removable hard drive for secure locations.
