The First Ever USB 3.0 Beam Profiling Camera
Monday, March 04, 2013
Quebec City, CANADA – March 4th, 2013 –Gentec Electro-Optics, Inc. (Quebec City, Canada), is proud to launch the Beamage-3.0, the very first USB 3.0 camera dedicated to Laser Beam Profiling. This new CMOS-based camera comes with a completely redesigned software that features both a highly intuitive user interface and powerful data analysis tools.
The USB 3.0 Advantage
The USB 3.0 interface of the new Beamage-3.0 camera features a data transfer rate up to 10X faster than any USB 2.0 system. This incredible speed allows for much faster data transfer rates, up to 10 fps at 1 MPixels. USB 3.0 also features an improved communication architecture that reduces both data transmission latency and power consumption.
Perfect for Both Small and Large Beams
Thanks to its unique combination of high pixel density (2.2 MPixels) and large sensor size (11.3 x 6.0 mm), the Beamage-3.0 has the double advantage of accurately characterising both very small beams of only a few tens of microns to larger beams of several mm in width, thus effectively covering most of the applications in one device.
Simple but Effective
The completely redesigned software takes full advantage of today’s best development tools. The simple interface is highly intuitive and yet comprises many useful functions, like Background Subtraction, Animation Tool, Signal Normalization, Filtering and Averaging Functions, External Triggering, Active Area Definition, Gaussian Fit and more. Furthermore, the calculations done by the software are ISO 11146:2004, 11146:2005 and 13694-2000 compliant and give the user the most accurate beam characterization available, all this in a lightweight environment that doesn’t take days to fully master.
The Final Argument
And if all this wasn’t enough, the Beamage-3.0 will be offered at a very attractive price, much lower than comparable camera-based profiling systems on the market. The Beamage-3.0 is expected to launch in April 2013 but orders can be placed now by contacting your local Gentec-EO representative.
