Ophir Photonics Group has announced the latest version of its StarLab measurement software, version 2.20, which supports Beamtrack sensors that can measure power, energy, beam position and beam size.
StarLab, a PC-based application, logs all of the Beamtrack sensor’s measurements and can display them graphically separately or as multiple data sets can be displayed in one graph. Graphic options include line plot, histogram, bar chart, and simulated analogue needle. Data can also be saved in text form.
The measurements can also be incorporated into software packages such as Microsoft’s Visual Basic, Labview and MatLab. Labview support integrates real-time control and analysis and signal processing functions with Ophir's USB module Juno, which can connect any of Ophir's thermal, pyroelectric or photodiode sensors to a USB port.
StarLab 2.20 is included free of charge with all Juno, USBI, Vega, Nova II, Pulsar, and Quasar power, energy meters. It works with Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Vista (32-bit), and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit).
