High Power Laser Power Probe Measures to 10,000 Watts
Wilmington, MA August, 2003...Ophir Optronics, Inc. announces the introduction of the Comet, a handheld, high precision, and high power, laser power probe that measures laser power from 200W to 10,000 Watts.
The Comet provides and absolute accuracy of ±5% at calibrated wavelengths. The Comet is calibrated for CO2, YAG and Diode lasers with a spectral range for CO2 of 10.6µm and 800-1064nm for YAG type lasers. Linearity with power is ±2% from 1KW to 10KW. The probe handle swivels ±90 degrees, with regards to the absorber head for ease-of-use. The probe is easy and safe to use for hands free operation in AUTO mode. Several measurements can be taken before the probe needs to be cooled.
The display is a 2x8; 5mm character LCD, which is integrated into the handle. The probe will store the last three readings made. The Comet probe is powered by two AA batteries with a project battery life of 1-year under normal use.
