Pyrocam IIIHR Beam Profiling Camera
Array Camera with BeamGage
The Pyrocam camera accurately captures and analyzes wavelengths from 13nm - 355nm and 1.06-3000µm with its broadband array. It features a solid state high-resolution array with a wide dynamic range, fast data capture rates, and operates in CW or Pulsed modes which makes it ideal for analysis of NIR, CO2, and THz sources.

- BeamGage ProfessionalBeamGage Professional has all of the functionality that BeamGage Standard includes. BeamGage Professional supports all of our beam profiling cameras, includes window partitioning to allow analysis of multiple beams on a single camera, and includes an automation interface written in .NET to push data to your custom applications.
What is the distance from the front of the camera to the sensor?
What is the saturation level of the PY IIIHR camera?
What is the framerate of the Pyrocam IIIHR?
25/50Hz chopped mode, SS-100Hz pulsed mode consecutive, up to 1kHz pulse mode non-consecutive
The effective frame rates listed in BeamGage specification sheets are the maximum rates typically achievable in actual use. Frame buffering, image processing techniques, graphical displays, and mathematical computation all add degrees of overhead to achieving higher frame rates. This can be further limited by the available PC hardware. BeamGage features two modes, Frame Priority and Results Priority, which change how the system balances the work. Results Priority acquires a frame, performs any enabled image processing, performs all calculations and updates the graphical displays before accepting another frame from the camera. This mode is most useful when a temporal sequence of frames is not necessary and should always be enabled when logging. Frame Priority mode will allow the calculations and graphical display updates to be interrupted if another frame is ready from the camera before those operations are complete. This can be useful when collecting all frames at the maximum camera frame rate is necessary.
What beam sizes can I measure with the Pyrocam IIIHR?
1.6mm - 12.3mm
The accurate beam size minimum is derived by the pixel size of the camera. In order to get an accurate measurement, there must be enough coverage of pixels to ensure that illuminating another pixel will not over exaggerate the beam size.

Is your laser's beam profile shaped correctly for your application?
This video teaches the fundamentals of laser beam profiles and discusses the benefits of profiling your laser beam.
Several case studies are presented showing before and after laser beam profiles.
This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to set up a camera-based beam profiling system on an industrial single-pulse laser welding system.
It will also demonstrate for you how to simultaneously analyze the laser's focused spot, measure the laser's energy per pulse, and measure its temporal pulse shape.
BeamMaker helps engineers, technicians, and researchers understand a beam's modal content by subtracting theoretically generated modes from real beam measurement data. Derive a perfect beam profile by specifying the mode, size, width, height, intensity, angle, and noise content - then comparing it to theoretically derived measurements. The end result is knowledge about how much the real beam varies from the desired beam.
Watch the BeamGage Tutuorials, including tips on handling your CCD camera, software install, introduction to the BeamGage user interface, the context-sensitive help system and user manual, customizing your reporting environment, and configuring BeamGage to display specific laser measurements.

Installing the Pyrocam III
The Optical Camera Trigger is an optical sensor that detects pulsed light sources and generates outputs to trigger a camera. The front aperture of the Optical Trigger must be directed at a light source that provides the necessary properties for trigger activation. (e.g. a laser flash lamp, a pick-off source from the main laser beam, or similar).
In addition to the stackable filters and beam splitters described above, one can purchase the LBS-100 system that is not as compact as the stackable system above but has larger aperture, can be changed without disassembly and has versions for longer wavelengths. The system contains the mounting frame, 1 wedge beam splitter and several attenuators.
The LBS-400 beam sampler attachment for Pyrocam cameras allow you to measure UV or IR wavelength laser beams with diameters up to 1 inch (25.4mm) and powers ranging from 10mW to ~500W. The beam sampler is designed so that the preferential polarization selection effect of a single wedge is cancelled out and the resulting beam image is polarization
