  • New Gentec-EO HP60A-15KW-GD detector for laser power measurement up to 15 kW

    New Gentec-EO HP60A-15KW-GD detector for laser power measurement up to 15 kW

    Gentec-EO is now offering a new laser power detector that can measure up 15 kW of continuous power with a damage threshold of 10 kW/cm2.

    The new HP60A-15KW-GD power detector has a gold reflector cone that is specifically designed to handle the high intensities of very small but powerful beams. By reflecting the incident light on the sides of the aperture, the cone effectively spreads the intensity on a larger area (which is covered by our proprietary high damage threshold absorber), thus raising the damage threshold to 10 kW/cm2 at full power.

    With such high damage thresholds, you can now measure your laser’s power without the need to expand your beam.

    Also, because the light is redirected toward the inside of the detector, there is less heat that is dissipated in the environment surrounding your detector and therefore it allows for a more compact optical setup in your work environment. Moreover, the very low back-reflections of the detector ensure a safer working environment with high power lasers.

    This detector comes with both a DB-15 connector (for use with a Gentec-EO display such as MAESTRO, TUNER or UNO) and a USB2.0 output for direct measurement on a PC with our free proprietary software PC-Gentec-EO.

    This water-cooled detector is available in both imperial and metric version.

    Just like all other Gentec-EO high-power detectors, the HP60A-15KW-GD is less sensitive to variations in water cooling temperature than any other high-power water-cooled meter on the market, which provides a stable measurement reading.

    Calibration is available for both YAG and CO2 lasers with a calibration uncertainty of +/- 5%.

    Does your laser system always produce the exact same energy output? One may be tempted to assume that lasers always produce energy as per their specifications and that it never changes over time. The reality is often very different.

    Many elements such as the optical components and surrounding environment have an impact on the energy your beam delivers. The intrinsic noise of the pulsed laser is also an important factor since it has a large impact on pulse-to-pulse energy stability.

    • If you manufacture medical equipment, you need to ensure patient’s safety and guarantee good operation for your customers.
    • If you integrate LIDAR system you can’t afford to have variation in laser energy from pulse-to-pulse, otherwise, the reflection would be meaningless.
    • If you do nuclear fusion research, you need to monitor all the laser lines that operate the system at different checkpoints in order to produce the desirable results.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to measure laser energy accurately. You will also discover the tools that can help you maintain standardized quality and ensure end-users’ safety, therefore ensuring the success of your operations.
