Wireless laser power measurement for all power levels
Friday, February 01, 2019
Two years ago, Gentec Electro-Optics, Inc. launched BLU, the first wireless laser power meter series. This line of all-in-one detectors combines a detector and a meter with Bluetooth connectivity in one convenient integrated product. This year, we expand the possibilities of wireless by introducing BLU for the XLP series (for low powers down to the microwatts) and for the UP55C high power detectors (up to 2.5 kW).
The small but powerful meter of the BLU series features a Bluetooth connection. You can display the results on your mobile device with the free Gentec-EO BLU app available for both iOS and Android. Need to use it with a PC? Just plug in the included Bluetooth dongle and be ready to make power or energy measurements within seconds.
With wireless laser power meters, it is now possible to make measurements in enclosures, hard-to-reach places, etc. The BLU series makes laboratories and production floors safer by allowing the operators to be farther from the detector while making measurements. They are also essential tools for field service technicians that will take advantage of the integrated electronics, thus carrying less instruments.
Each detector of the all-in-one BLU series offers the same outstanding performance as the usual detector and meter combination, from μW to kW.
This module is offered with most Gentec-EO laser power detectors. Simply ask for the BLU option.
These products will be shown at Photonics West 2019 (booth 1659).
