Gentec-EO Beamage 3.0: The First Ever USB 3.0 Beam Profiling Camera

Gentec Beamage 3.0

Gentec Electro-Optics, Inc.(Quebec City, Canada), is proud to launch the Beamage 3.0, the very first USB 3.0 camera dedicated to Laser Beam Profiling. This new CMOS-based camera comes with a completely redesigned software that features both a highly intuitive user interface and powerful data analysis tools. 

The USB 3.0 Advantage 

The USB 3.0 interface of the new Beamage 3.0 camera features a data transfer rate up to 10X faster than any USB 2.0 system. This incredible speed allows for much faster data transfer rates, up to 10 fps at 1 MPixels. USB 3.0 also features an improved communication architecture that reduces both data transmission latency and power consumption. Read more.

3D beam profile


  • USB 3.0 for the Fastest Transfer RatesUp to 10X faster than regular USB 2.0 connections (also USB 2.0 compatible)
  • High Resolution2.2 MPixels resolution gives accurate profile measurements on very small beams
  • Large Area Sensor: 11.3 x 6.0 mm sensor allows to measure very large beams
  • ISO Compliant: Definition of Diameter, Centroid, Ellipticity and Orientation are ISO 11146:2004 and 11146:2005 compliant
  • Intuitive Software Interface: Easy to navigate interface, with many display and control features:
  • 2D, 3D and XY Displays
  • Background Subtraction Function
  • Unique "Animate" Function
  • Gaussian Fit
  • Semi-Log Graph
  • External Trigger: To synchronize the camera with a pulsed laser
  • Low-Cost: The most affordable, large size camera-based beam profiler on the market

Perfect for Both Small and Large Beams

Thanks to its unique combination of high pixel density (2.2 MPixels) and large sensor size (11.3 x 6.0mm), the Beamage 3.0 has the double advantage of accurately characterising both very small beams of only a few tens of microns to larger beams of several mm in width, thus effectively covering most of the applications in one device.

Simple but Effective

Beamage 3.0 Software main screen

 The completely redesigned software takes full advantage of today’s best development tools. The simple interface is highly intuitive and yet comprises many useful functions, like Background Subtraction, Animation Tool, Signal Normalization, Filtering and Averaging Functions, External Triggering, Active Area Definition, Gaussian Fit and more.

Furthermore, the calculations done by the software are ISO 11146:2004, 11146:2005 and 13694-2000 compliant and give the user the most accurate beam characterization available, all this in a lightweight environment that doesn’t take days to fully master.

The Final Argument

And if all this wasn’t enough, the Beamage 3.0 will be offered at a very attractive price, much lower than comparable camera-based profiling systems on the market. The Beamage 3.0 is expected to launch in April 2013 but orders can be placed now.
