- 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 SP504S camera?
What is the frame rate of the SP504S?
The effective frame rates listed in BeamGage specification sheets are the maximum rates typically achievable in actual use when in 2x2 binning mode. 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.Close
What beam sizes can I measure with the SP504S?
My laptop will not connect to the SP504S while connected to its docking station.
Many laptops disable the GigE port on the computer when docked. Try using the port on the docking station.
All GigE ports used to connect to the SP504S need to be configured according to the Ethernet Configuration for Ophir-Spiricon GigEVision Products document.
Why is the SP504S frame rate degrading over time?
If the SP504S is used on a NIC that is not properly configured or does not fully support Gigabit Ethernet speeds, over time the camera frame rate may degrade or stop altogether. Ensure that the NIC driver properties have been optimized according to the Ethernet Configuration for Ophir-Spiricon GigEVision Products document. If the degrading frame rates continue, the camera must be power cycled in order to restore operation.Close
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.

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).

The LBS-400 beam sampler attachment for Pyrocams and large format Beam Profilers allows measuring UV, NIR or IR wavelength laser beams with diameters up to 1 inch (25.4mm) and powers ranging from 10mW to ~500W(1). The output beam preserves the polarization of the original beam.
