Ophir Spiricon presents StarBright, a feature-rich, handheld laser power/energy meter that measures power, single shot energy, repetitive energy, frequency, and beam size for the company’s wide range of thermal, pyroelectric, and photodiode laser sensors. In addition, it measures irradiance and dosage for the new PD300RM radiometer sensors. When used with Ophir’s award-winning BeamTrack power/position/size sensors, the new meter can also monitor laser beam size and track beam position to fractions of a mm. StarBright features a brightly lit, 320x240 pixel color display with large, 16mm digits for enhanced readability of power and energy measurements, from pW to kW’s and pJ to hundreds of Joules. StarBright gives users a choice of display formats: digital with bargraph or analog needle. The digital screen can average measurements over selected periods of time, which is especially useful for unstable lasers. Mathematical functions are available for advanced processing, including density, scale factor, pass/fail inspection. Every data point can be logged at up to 5000Hz from Ophir’s pyroelectric sensors. StarBright works with StarLab laser measurement software and StarCom data logging software. A LabVIEW® driver and COM object allow developers to integrate laser beam measurements into sophisticated programming environments, such as LabVIEW®, Microsoft’s® Visual Basic, and MatLab® (200 w).
