The PLD-1C driver phase locks any tuning fork chopper (type CH, except for the subminiature CH-25) to an external clock input. The system can be used as a "stand alone" unit or can be incorporated into a larger instrument or a system. Although thetuning fork chopper can be used in a large temperature range this driver is not recommended for use in temperature sensitive applications. To lock the chopper to an external clock signal you need to specify the exact clock frequency (to 4 decimal places). The phase relationship to the clock is factory set to customer's requirements (0° to 360°).
