Single-Channel Benchtop Optical Meter
Feb 2009
Newport CorporationRequest Info
Irvine, Calif., Feb. 17, 2009 – Newport Corp. has expanded its optical power meter and detector family with the introduction of the 1928-C single-channel benchtop optical meter. The compact power meter interfaces with all of the company’s photodiode detectors, thermopiles and pyroelectric detectors.

Newport_Benchtop-Optical-Me.jpgIt measures from 11 pW to 20 kW of optical power and from 7 µJ to 20 kJ of pulse energy. The fast 100-kHz sampling rate ensures that the pulse measurements are accurate and that any fluctuations in the continuous-wave power are not ignored.

It incorporates various filtering to make the reading more stable. Advanced features include a highly visible color display, graphing, a strip chart display, statistics, data storage via internal memory or USB flash drive, and an analog output interface. The meter does not have an internal fan to cool it, an advantage in applications where the vibration of a fan motor could interfere with stability in an experimental setup.

The optical meter is also equipped with several environmentally friendly features. The circuitry results in low energy consumption, and the standby mode saves energy when the meter is not being used. It is reactivated with the press of any button on the front panel. It can display irradiance in “sun” units, enabling photovoltaic researchers to use it as a complementary tool to a reference solar cell.

The 1928-C was developed for users who do not need to measure extremely low light levels.
