OPHIR Photonics Expands Beamtrack Family of Multi-Function Laser Sensors; Now Measure Power, Position, Size, Centering, and Wander to 1000W

San Francisco, CA — Ophir Photonics, global leader in precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation brand, has announced the newest member of the BeamTrack family, the 1000W-BB-34-Quad, at Photonics West 2014. BeamTrack is a series of compact, multi-function thermal detectors that measure laser power, energy, beam position, and in some models beam size, in one device. The BeamTrack family includes the previously announced 3W, 10W, 50W, 150W, and 250W detectors. The new, high power 1000W-BB-34-Quad measures power and position up to 1000W.

BeamTrack sensors are the only laser detectors in the industry able to measure power, position, size (PPS), energy, centering, and wander in a single device. Sensors are available with a range of aperture sizes, from 12mm to 50mm. The broadband absorbers of the detectors can measure a spectral range from 150nm to 20µm.

The 1000W-BB-34-Quad measures laser power from 15W to 1000W, and energy from 300mJ to 300J. Beam position is accurate to 0.5 mm. Beam position can be logged to record beam wander.

All BeamTrack sensors feature a "Smart Connector" interface that operates with Ophir's StarLite, Nova II, and Vega smart displays, and Juno PC interface. The display is automatically configured and calibrated when plugged into one of the company's laser measurement heads.

Pricing and Availability

The BeamTrack Power/Position/Size Sensors are available now. OEM pricing is available on request. The 1000W-BB-34-Quad data sheet can be viewed at:
