Beamstar FX Series Firewire CCD Laser Beam Profilers
Wilmington, MA, April 2004...Ophir Optronics, Inc., leaders in advanced technology for the measurement of laser power, energy and wavelength, introduce their completely new BeamStar FX series of digital laser beam profilers. The FX series are the most sophisticated beam profilers on the market today. With their firewire interface, they work equally well with laptop or desktop PCs. Ophir's BeamStar firewire CCD beam profilers provide all you need for beam profiles of both pulsed and CW lasers from µW to Watts. The system consists of a camera, filters, laptop or PC card, software and detailed instructions.
The BeamStar FX 33 and FX 50 have a trigger input to synchronize with the trigger output from a pulsed laser. These profilers have an exclusive optional photodiode trigger that picks up the scattered laser light and automatically synchronizes with the laser pulses even for a nanosecond or shorter pulses. The FX series has exclusive automatic gain and exposure adjustment and automatic photodiode synchronization with pulsed lasers. The FX series has 1/3", ½" and 2/3" cameras, in addition to solutions for UV and IR and beam expansion or reduction. These features make the BeamStar FX Series easier and more accurate than ever before.
Ophir offers BeamStar FX cameras that have automatic continuous shutter and gain control, which provides highly accurate measurements.
