Ophir has a number of ways to measure high laser powers up to 12kW without heavy water cooled equipment. Most of today’s lasers can be set to emit for a short, precisely controlled period of time. If a short exposure to the laser of 0.3 – 10s is sufficient to measure the power then there are compact, uncooled sensors available for this purpose.
- There is the industrial grade Helios, with measurement of the pulse width, Profinet communications and a protective cover.
- There are a number of simpler sensors that calculate the power by measuring the energy of a short exposure.
- There is the simplest solution of the Ophir Comet power pucks.
