Video: Laser Parameters for Choosing a Sensor – The pitfall of worst case combinations

Have you fallen into the Worst Case Combination Trap?

Let’s say your laser spec gives a range of values for various parameters. Power from X to Y, beam size from this to that…etc.
Unless the “worst case” numbers for all of the laser parameters will really happen together at once, looking for a sensor that could handle that can lead you to some serious overkill.

Tech tip: Finding The Right Tool for the Right Job

Each week our team in Ophir Optronics Solutions Ltd. receives requests to replace older or damaged laser power or energy meters and sensors. At the same time, we receive many items returned to us for re-calibration that we are unable to calibrate or repair.

Ophir has worked hard to educate our customers to reduce the laser damage caused by overheating or incorrect application to the wrong lasers; still, we realize that sometimes accidents happen.

In the article attached to this week’s blog post, we’ll discuss the best way to select the optimum power meter and sensor for your laser application using the Sensor Finder and Laser Fluence Calculator. In addition, you’ll be able to find a tutorial about how to avoid damaging your sensors: https://www.ophiropt.com/laser–measurement/knowledge-center/article/12141
