Ophir-Spiricon has introduced StarLab 2.00, the latest version of its laser measurement software that converts a PC into a multi-channel laser power/energy station. New features include synchronisation and display of multiple channels in one window, user-defined and multi-channel calculations, and an easy-to-use configuration panel for all channels.
StarLab works with Ophir-Spiricon's smart displays and PC interfaces, allowing users to measure, analyse, and record laser power and energy parameters from the company's line of smart power/energy sensors.
StarLab 2.00 supports the selection and display of multiple channels of data in one or more window. Each channel can be colour coded and superimposed to track trends for all sensors simultaneously. The software logs data from up to eight power/energy sensors; data can be time synched and logged for later review. New mathematical functions include a Scale Factor for use with beam splitters; this allows display of the actual laser output and not just what is impinging on the sensor. The new Density function shows the power and/or energy density based on a user-defined spot size and shape. New multi-channel calculations include ratio (A/B), difference (A-B), and user defined formulae. A configuration panel makes setup quick and easy.
StarLab 2.00 collects data from Ophir-Spiricon's pyroelectric, thermal, and photodiode heads using any of the company's laser power/energy meters, PC interfaces, or combinations of the two.
