SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 4, 2008 -- The new LabMax laser power and energy meter from Coherent Inc. supports position-sensing detectors and is compatible with all its current and past sensors, the company said. Position sensing simplifies proper alignment with the detector, ensuring measurement accuracy, and also permits long-term beam monitoring.
LabMax provides a number of advanced options for data acquisition, storage and analysis. It features flexible data-logging capabilities, which are selected using batch setup options. Built-in file management capabilities make it easy to transfer stored data to an external computer by USB, serial interface, or even using the onboard flash memory, the company said. Plus, data integrity is enhanced with the introduction of an improved external pulse trigger. LabMax can also perform a number of statistical functions on accumulated data (minimum, maximum, mean, range, standard deviation), as well as offering trend charting, a tuning display and beam stability analysis.
According to Coherent, the wide range of thermal, pyroelectric and semiconductor sensors available from the company enable LabMax to deliver high accuracy measurements of average power, pulse energy, repetition rate and beam position for pulsed and CW (continuous wave) lasers operating from 190 nm to 12 µm, over measurement ranges from 1 nW to 30 kW and 1 nJ to 30 J, from single shot to 10 kHz.
Its large, tiltable display and 0° to 180° tilt bail enable the meter to be viewed from virtually any angle, and rechargeable batteries make LabMax self-contained and completely portable. Coherent-supplied software and LabView drivers provide a range of options for external control and system integration.
LabMax is the ideal solution for an extremely broad spectrum of laser measurement tasks, Coherent said. Typical examples include general laboratory use with CW, pulsed and even ultrafast lasers, data logging in production quality analysis settings, and monitoring of burn-in testing by engineering and product development personnel.
