Ophir-Spiricon has introduced Sensor Finder, an online application that helps users find the best laser power/energy sensor guaranteed to work with their laser. The company also introduced 3D laser power/energy sensor drawings and an upgraded website.
Featured on the www.ophir-spiricon.com website, Sensor Finder allows users to input laser characteristics and the type of measurement required (power only or energy and power). In return, the program provides a list of Ophir-Spiricon power/energy sensors that are guaranteed to work with their laser under the stated conditions. Sensor Finder calculates and displays the power and energy density of the laser, the damage limit of the sensors under these conditions, and determines which sensors are guaranteed to perform with the laser specs. The program also shows how close one is to the damage threshold so the user can choose a sensor that is well below the damage threshold. A report with a list of recommended sensors can be saved or printed.
