Lasers are used for many different applications and come in a large variety of powers and parameters, so it wouldn’t be fair (or logical) to require the same sort of safety measures for industrial laser welders as laser pointers or barcode scanners.
Ophir Fiber Adapter Solution can be used as a diagnosis tool. In addition it is ideally suited for manufacturers of laser fibers or fiber lasers. By connecting the fiber directly to the power meter, they can easily perform power measurement within the production process or as end of line testing.
With lasers, more attention must be paid to the selection of the right sensor as different sensors perform different measurements. Selecting the wrong sensor can result in inability to measure well or can even destroy the sensor.
