Ophir Photonics Introduces StarLite, Low Cost Laser Power / Energy Meter
Supports Digital and Analog Screen Displays
January 28, 2013
January 28, 2013 – North Logan, Utah -- Ophir Photonics Group, the global leader in precision laser measurement
equipment and a Newport Corporation brand, today announced StarLite, a new low cost laser power / energy meter that provides both
digital and analog screen displays. A compact, handheld unit, StarLite displays a variety of beam measurements, including power,
single shot energy, energy and frequency of high repetition rate lasers, and beam size. The meter provides a large 320x240 pixel
display with 16mm digits for increased legibility, and monitors power from pW to many kW or energy from pJ to hundreds of Joules.
StarLite monitors power and energy for all Ophir thermopile, pyroelectric, and photodiode sensors.
The meter can also monitor laser beam size and accurately track beam position to fractions of a mm when used with
Ophir's BeamTrack, a unique series of thermal detectors that combine multiple functions in one device: power, energy,
beam position, and beam size.
The user interface for StarLite allows selection of a digital power screen or an analog needle display.
The digital screen can average measurements over selected periods of time, which is especially useful for unstable lasers.
The analog needle display is designed for adjusting and maximizing laser power or energy.
StarLite's compact, handheld design features rubberized bumpers and an optimum angle kickstand. It can be operated from a
rechargeable battery or a connected to an AC source. The brightly lit display allows illumination of the power meter in low light
conditions. Like other Ophir smart displays – Nova II, Vega, and Juno – StarLite features a "Smart Connector" interface that
automatically configures and calibrates the display when plugged into one of the company's measurement sensors.
Availability & Pricing
The StarLite power /energy meter is available now. OEM pricing is available on request.
