Default LuxDrive micropuk

I have a bunch of LuxDrive micro-pucks from LED applications. Will these work to control the current to a laser diode?

These are the specs http://www.luxdrive.com/content/2009A-MicroPuck.pdf

Default Re: LuxDrive micropuk

I don't know, but I am curious as well. If this similar product is any indication, then this type of LED driver may not be accurate enough for anything but 445's and the current isn't high enough for them typically.

Accuracy is only 8% and ripple is an astonishingly bad 25%!

Might try them out on a scope though...
