Beam Profiling Camera

Oct. 17, 2018
Ophir's high-resolution camera analyzes beam wavelengths from 190 to 1,100 nm.

SP920G GigE Silicon CCD High Resolution Camera, designed specifically for industrial laser beam profiling applications, accurately captures and analyzes wavelengths from 190 to 1,100 nm. It features a compact design, wide dynamic range, unparalleled signal to noise ratio, and high-speed GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) interface. It’s ideal for measuring CW and pulsed laser profiles in such high-speed applications as laser cutting of medical devices or welding of dissimilar materials.


The high-speed GigE interface allows it to leverage the benefits of higher speed combined with industry standard Ethernet's ready availability, broad compatibility, and lower cost. The camera delivers 1,624 x 1,224 pixel resolution with a 4.4µm pixel pitch for measuring beam widths of 44?m to 5.3 mm. It also includes a photodiode synch to capture scattered laser light at even the most challenging nanosecond pulse rates.


The SP920G GigE CCD camera is supported by BeamGage, an advanced beam analysis software. BeamGage Standard includes all the algorithms and calculations needed to make accurate, ISO approved laser beam measurements. The software provides advanced image processing features, NIST-traceable power measurements, trend charting, data logging, pass/fail production testing, and multilingual support for English, Japanese, and Chinese. BeamGage Professional adds such capabilities as partitioning of the camera output for separate analysis of multiple laser beams from sources such as fiber, a .NET interface for full remote control when integrating beam analysis into an automated application, and camera sharing.
