New HP60A-15KW-GD detector for laser power measurement up to 15 kW

Gentec-EO is now offering a new laser power detector that can measure up 15 kW of continuous power with a damage threshold of 10 kW/cm2.

The new HP60A-15KW-GD power detector has a gold reflector cone that is specifically designed to handle the high intensities of very small but powerful beams. By reflecting the incident light on the sides of the aperture, the cone effectively spreads the intensity on a larger area (which is covered by our proprietary high damage threshold absorber), thus raising the damage threshold to 10 kW/cm2 at full power.

With such high damage thresholds, you can now measure your laser’s power without the need to expand your beam.

Also, because the light is redirected toward the inside of the detector, there is less heat that is dissipated in the environment surrounding your detector and therefore it allows for a more compact optical setup in your work environment. Moreover, the very low back-reflections of the detector ensure a safer working environment with high power lasers.

Laser specifications change over time for many reasons and it causes problems accross all industries. Learn about how laser output measurement solves numerous problems in YOUR industry. Download the guide below.


Gentec-EO's high-accuracy laser beam measurement instruments help engineers, scientists and technicians in all sorts of laser applications from the factory to the hospital, laboratory and research center. Learn about our solutions for these measurement types:

This detector comes with both a DB-15 connector (for use with a Gentec-EO display such as MAESTRO, TUNER or UNO) and a USB2.0 output for direct measurement on a PC with our free proprietary software PC-Gentec-EO.

This water-cooled detector is available in both imperial and metric version.

Just like all other Gentec-EO high-power detectors, the HP60A-15KW-GD is less sensitive to variations in water cooling temperature than any other high-power water-cooled meter on the market, which provides a stable measurement reading.

Calibration is available for both YAG and CO2 lasers with a calibration uncertainty of +/- 5%.
