PE-C Sensors with StarLab

Support for PE-C \ PD10-C sensors with Vega, Nova II, Juno, Juno+, Juno-RS, EA-1, StarLite and StarBright in StarLab application is now available. Follow step-by-step instructions to upgrade the embedded software in the PE-C \ PD10-C sensor with the StarLab application

When working with other meters and interfaces it is not necessary to update the embedded software of the PE-C \ PD10-C.

Note: PE-C \ PD10-C sensors can't be upgraded via EA-1 interface..

Measuring Laser Energy with a Pyroelectric Sensor

In this short “Basics” video, we review in general the use of pyro-electric sensors for measuring laser pulse energies.

Premium Energy Sensors – Even for UV

Meet Ophir’s high performance energy sensors for pulsed UV lasers (and not only for UV…). These sensors are the perfect solution for pulsed lasers at 193 and 248 nm.

Energy Sensor Response & Integration Time

There seems to be a good deal of confusion when it comes to the terms “Response time” and “Integration time” of energy sensors. In this video we will clarify the meaning of these terms, as they apply to Ophir’s pyro-electric “Smart Sensors”.

How to Detect Missing Laser Pulses with a Pyroelectric Sensor

This video will show you how to detect and record any missing pulses in your pulsed laser beam application.

Additional Error with Frequency in a Pyroelectric Sensor

In many laser energy sensor specifications, there is an item called "Additional error with frequency". Learn what that means, and why and when it happens, in this video.
