The new USBI-4 Smart Head to PC Interface from Ophir Optronics enables you to turn your PC or laptop into a fully fledged Ophir multi-channel laser power/energy meter.

Just install the software, plug the head and power source into the interface box and the USB cable from the box to the PC USB port. Using the USBI-4, you can connect up to four heads to each box. The connection from there to the PC is via one USB cable.

The USBI-4 allows you to record pulse energies at up to 20,000Hz for all four channels simultaneously. An external trigger input enables measurement of missing pulses. The application allows tiling of up to eight heads on one screen, and active X software will later be provided (mid 2007) so that you can control the USBI from your own software.
