Compact Handheld Laser Power/Energy Meter

Share this on social media:

Scientech has released a line of calorimeter laser measurement systems using its new intelligent detector technology. 

Designed to be very robust, these new systems consist of a handheld meter and a choice of thermal detectors including 8mm, 16mm, 25mm, 50mm, 100mm, and 200mm aperture models.  Also new is an optional field calibration tool, which will allow easy calibration of these systems without having to send them back to the factory for annual calibrations. The systems will be distributed by Laser Physics.

The Astral Series S AI310 or AI310D indicators are compact, portable, handheld devices in a rugged, metal case. The AI310 uses both a 4-digit LCD display along with a true analogue needle meter movement. The AI51D is also available, which is the digital only version of the AI51. The meter can be powered either by the standard wall-mounted power supply/battery charger, optional USB data interface, or optional battery.

The Astral Series S detectors are available in either surface or volume absorbing models, which sport apertures from 8mm to 200mm. The surface absorbing models are ideal for measuring CW lasers, while the volume absorbing models are designed for pulsed lasers using either the watts mode or single pulse energy mode. Some large aperture models will measure up to 1,000J of single pulse energy and each detector also comes with a NIST traceable calibration certificate.
