Andover, MA – July 22, 2019 – MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir® 16K-W High Power Laser Sensor
A compact sensor for measuring very high power lasers
The new 16K-W High Power water-cooled laser thermal sensor, measures powers from 100W to 16kW over the spectral range of 0.8µm to 2µm and 10.6µm.
A relatively large, 55mm aperture is insensitive to beam size or angle of divergence. The sensor delivers a fast, 3.5 sec response time. A deflecting cone and annular absorber can withstand high power densities to 10kW/cm2 .
The 16K-W laser power sensor’s water circuit is designed to reach approved water flow rates with lower pressure requirements.
The sensor also features an over temperature sensor that triggers an LED indicator, audible alarm, and M8 3-connector interlock to protect the system from low water flow or flow stoppage. Read all about Ophir® 16K-W High Power Laser Sensor here
