Gentec-EO’s product finder: A guiding hand to help you choose a laser measurement instrument
Wednesday, May 26, 2021
No laser power and energy detector can measure all lasers.
With infinite combinations of beam shape, beam dimension, laser type, wavelength, average power, repetition rate, pulse width and beam profiles, etc., necessarily comes a large range of measurement devices to ensure accurate measurement in all applications.
Therefore, finding the power or energy detector that fits your laser specifications can be confusing for many.
Sure, our laser experts are just one phone call away to guide you in this process, but if you want to do it yourself or don’t feel ready for contacting us, we have built the perfect tool: Gentec-EO’s product finder.
Designed by our very best engineers in laser beam measurement, the complex algorithm behind this tool takes into account all your laser specifications and finds the products that best fit your situation.
Yet, it is very simple to use with only 3 questions that you can answer in a few seconds if you know your laser well. Questions are about your beam size, laser type and beam profile, which you can normally find in any laser’s datasheet. But there is one important factor to consider: this tool expects you to input the parameters of the laser beam at the measurement point, which can be very different from your laser’s output.
Once you have provided your laser specifications, hit submit and let the algorithm do its work.
Recommended measurement instruments will be presented to you like this:
Just click on them, to go to their product page and explore them in details.
A great feature of the Gentec-EO’s product finder is that it can also be used in reverse mode.
Let’s say that instead of starting your shopping with the product finder, you started browsing directly our website and found a product that you like. Then, naturally, you want to check if this products works for your laser. Luckily there is a quick and sure way of doing this.
On any product page on our website, click on the Specifications tab and then on the blue button named “Check if this product works for your laser”.
You will then be taken to the same 3 questions shown above in this article about your beam size, laser type and beam profile. The algorithm will then confirm whether or not the detector you are interested in is appropriate for your laser.
Isn’t it wonderful?
