Sensor for High Laser Output Powers
- Published on 20 October 2020
The new HP60A-15KW-GD power meter from Gentec-EO is designed for the high intensities of powerful lasers with comparatively small beam diameters (< 50 mm). With a damage threshold of 10 kW/cm², it withstands continuous output powers of up to 15 kW. A gold cone reflector directs the incoming light to the sides of the aperture to spread the intensity of the beam effectively over a larger area. The latter is coated with a high threshold absorber developed by the manufacturer. Since the light is deflected into the interior of the water-cooled detector, there are considerably fewer back reflections than in conventional surface absorbers. This allows the device to be easily integrated into compact optical setups.
The HP60A-15KW-GD is equipped with an integrated USB interface for direct operation on a Windows PC, as well as with the "intelligent" DB15 plug for connection to the manufacturer’s display devices. Another version features an integrated wireless module (BLU) to display the measurement results on a free app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The low-energy Bluetooth protocol used in this case offers a range of up to 30 meters and can also be used reliably in industrial environments.
