Ultra-Compact Laser Power Meter For High Power Industrial Lasers In Confined Spaces: Ophir® Ariel

Source: MKS Ophir

Ophir's Ariel is a self-contained, ultra-compact laser power meter for measuring high-power industrial lasers up to 8 KW. Designed for OEM and end-user applications in closed and confined spaces, such as additive manufacturing, metal cutting, and welding, the Ariel is a robust, battery-powered device that requires no water or fan cooling and is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand.

The system measures laser powers from 200 mW to 8 KW, and a wide range of wavelengths, including 440-550 nm green and blue lasers, 900-1100 nm fiber lasers, 10.6µm CO2 lasers; and 2.94µm medical lasers. The Ariel power meter provides a range of features for more flexible measurement options. It measures a wider range of wavelengths, operates in continuous or short exposure mode, is used with or without a diffuser for higher power densities, delivers 3 to 5 times faster reading times, and can be operated stand-alone or wirelessly.
