Coherent has expanded their PowerMax-USB/RS series with a new sensitive
sensor. Measuring only 5 mm the miniaturized sensor is ideal for
applications in biophonics such as Raman spectroscopy and laser
microscopy. In addition the new sensor can be applied for laser safety
in the field of laser classification. It comes with a compact USB
connector, avoiding the need of a separate meter or USB adapter box.
Appropriate software and the Labview® drivers are of course free of
charge. The software runs on all USB 2.0 computer with Win XP®,
VISTA® or Win 7®. The PowerMax® sensor is suitable for
measuring laser power from 100 µW to 300 mW anywhere over the 325
nm to 900 nm spectral range. Furthermore it is ideally suited for the
measurement of Ti:Sa and modulated lasers with a modulation frequency
greater than 100 Hz. Fiber adapter and additional accessories allowing
simple measurements even between their optical components as well as
optimizing fiber couplings.
Coherent will continue its expansion within the machine vision
market by direct distribution of their own Structured Light product
line. With a market presence of over 20 years, Coherent's Structured
Light laser technology stands out through its diversity of services.
The built-in powell lense and the diffractive optical elements
providing line respectively dot matrices structures are all made of
high quality glass, thus guaranteeing an excellent intensity
distribution. The rugged mechanical design ensures an outstanding beam
pointing stability of <10 µRad/ oC. An internal voltage and
heat protection plus a potential-free housing ensure an increased
lifetime. Thermoelectrically cooled lasers (UV-VIS-NIR) enhance
wavelength stability up to 0.25nm/ oC.
