Laser Sensors

Ophir Photonics (North Logan, UT) has announced the newest member of the BeamTrack family, the FL250A-BB-50-PPS. BeamTrack is a unique series of thermal detectors that combine multiple functions in one device: laser power, energy, beam position, and beam size. The sensors also provide information on beam centering and wander, all in a compact unit the size of a single function sensor of the same power level. The first BeamTrack detectors – measuring 3W, 10W, 50W, and 150W – were introduced in 2012.

CW Laser Diode Driver

A new laser diode driver, iC-HT, from iC Haus (Bodenheim, Germany) permits microcontroller-based activation of laser diodes in CW mode. With this device, laser diodes can be driven by either the optical output power (using APC), the laser diode current (using ACC), or a full, controller-based power control unit. The maximum laser diode current per channel is 750 mA. Both channels can be switched in parallel for particularly high laser diode currents of up to 1.5 A. A current limit can also be configured for each channel.

Video Kits

Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (Mount Olive, NJ), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, offers new Concealment Video Kits (CTVK). The CTVK all-in-one kit includes a hide with an integrated miniature Concealment COFDM Transmitter (CTxII); a COFDM briefcase Mobile Viewer Receiver; a Nexus 7 Android tablet for transmitter control; battery chargers; and all required cabling. Housed in a portable carrying case, the CTVK uses COFDM digital RF transmission. Each product also comes equipped with eConn Graphical User Interface (GUI) software, which allows users to change frequency plans, modify AES encryption keys, or assign unit names to each transmitter remotely. The eConn GUI connects through a mini USB connector (or Bluetooth® for the CTxII) and enables an administrator to configure up to 16 different frequency plans, with access control to prevent unauthorized changes by the user.
