The new version supports expanded network access via the Ophir EA-1 Ethernet Adapter or Quasar Bluetooth Adapter, user-defined pass/fail limits, and multiple pre-defined startup configurations.
We’d all like to imagine that our things will stay in mint condition forever. But we know that’s not the case. Just like laser degrade (and therefore must be measured), the measurement equipment itself will slowly drift away from its precise calibration.
This is why we recommend yearly calibration. If you aren’t sure when your laser power or energy is due for recalibration, you can check by connecting it to a meter. If it needs to be recalibrated, a notification will pop up on the first screen.
Here’s how the recalibration process works.
Disclaimer: Don’t do anything stupid.
What I’m about to tell you is a trick that should NOT be used lightly.
However, in many cases Ophir sensors can be used for far higher powers than in the spec, as long as it’s only for a short time exposure.
