Laser Emission Interlocks (all configurations)

All Axsun laser engines expose interlock inputs for the swept laser emission and aiming laser emission, as shown in the detailed diagrams below for each engine configuration.
If the Swept Laser Interlock is tripped (i.e. pulled to GND or allowed to float by an external circuit), the swept laser emission will be disabled within 2 microseconds.
A tripped Swept Laser Interlock will latch the swept laser emission into a disabled state, and two distinct steps are then required to re-enable swept laser emission:
  1. 1.
    Reconnect the Swept Laser Interlock input to ~3.3V, then
  2. 2.
    Explicitly re-issue the "Swept Laser Emission -> ON" command, either via software interface (API or GUI tool) or by toggling the Swept Laser Emission On/Off Control input.
A tripped Aiming Laser Interlock does not latch the aiming laser into the disabled state and thus the aiming laser emission can be reenabled by reconnecting the Aiming Laser Interlock input to ~3.3V (no additional emission-on command is needed).
NOTE: Disabling swept laser emission or aiming laser emission in response to a tripped interlock input is accomplished in hardware logic only; there is no software or firmware interaction involved in this behavior.
NOTE: Axsun laser engines typically ship with a temporary mating connector for the Auxiliary & Interlocks receptacle whose pins are jumpered appropriately to allow laser emission (i.e. the interlocks are not tripped when this connector is installed). The user is expected to replace this temporary mating connector once external watchdog circuitry is implemented in order to control the laser emission interlock behavior.
