Beam Expanding Telescope is used on industrial drilling lasers.

December 20, 2010

Motorized Zoom Beam Expanding Telescope (ZBET), intended for use with JK604D drilling laser, remotely changes laser beam size and focus position using integrated LaserView software. Laser magnification can be continuously driven from 1X-4X in less than 5 sec, reducing setup times and promoting in-process flexibility. With optics optimized for high peak power operation, ZBET exhibits minimal beam wander while maintaining diffraction limited performance across entire expansion range. Read More

Cloud Height Detector enables air quality forecasting.

January 21, 2010

Able to measure cloud base height and vertical visibility in all weather conditions, Ceilometer CL51 reports planetary boundary layer structure parameters such as mixing layer height and residual layer height. It utilizes optical single lens technology and emits strong and stable signal over entire measurement range. Employing pulsed diode laser LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) technology, device can detect 3 cloud layers simultaneously from ground level to 43,000 ft. Read More

IR Thermometer has twin lasers/built-in optical telescope.

September 1, 2009

Featuring dual grip handle to assist in steady aiming in small target, long distance applications, Models PSC PTLST-20-1M and 2M offer temperature ranges of 650-1,800ºC on 1M version, and 385-1,600ºC on 2M. Spectral responses are 1.0 and 1.6 µm respectively. Twin lasers are mounted such that beams converge at target distance, illuminating measured area. Other features include internal 2,000 reading data logger, and max/min audible and visual 3 color alarm signaling on integral display. Read More

Cathetometer operates as micro-telescope.

April 17, 2007

Weighing 1 lb, Model TC-II measures vertical displacement in areas that are inaccessible to indicator, scriber, or other mechanical checking devices because of distance, or combinations of blended curves. It offers optically correct image (right side up, left-to-right) with magnification of 12.5X as microscope, and 3.5X at 7 in. as telescope. Unit features cross-hair reticle mounted in its eyepiece, 4 in. to infinity adjustable focal length, and 0.0001 in. per ft accuracy. Read More
