Inspection Station

The LF210 Inspection Station from Prior Scientific (Rockland, MA) is an automated inspection platform suitable for most industrial samples with moderate to high reflectivity. Samples placed on the inspection station’s motorized stage may be inspected manually using the ProScan joystick or auto-matically inspected using one of many imaging software packages commercially available. The heart of the LF210 inspection station is Prior’s LF210 Laser Autofocus module. Ideally suited for reflective specimens, the optical design eliminates the need to manually adjust the focus trim and loop gain. The Inspection Station comes standard with Prior’s high precision motorized XY stage with 40 nanometer resolution, Mitutoyo VMU assembly with four position nosepiece, 10X, 20X, 50X and 100X objectives and a powerful 150 watt fiber optic illuminator.

Industrial Femtosecond Lasers

The D2.fs from RPMC (O’Fallon, MO) is an industrial femtosecond laser available at 4W and 10W with pulse widths as short as 400fs at rep rates up to 200 kHz. The D2.fs produces a maximum energy of 200uJ at 50 kHz and 100uJ at 100 kHz with an emission wavelength of 1030nm. The D2.fs incorporates the use of a fiber seed oscillator and produces ultra-short pulses with high energy and consistent high beam quality. The D2.fs is suitable for micromachining, spectroscopy and other scientific applications where peak energy and precision are needed. The high rep rates combined with the high beam quality make the D2.fs a superior tool for micromachining and micro structuring of materials without causing thermal side effects.

10mm Waveplates

Tower Optical Corp. (Boynton Beach, FL) has announced the availability of a new series of Zero Order and Multiple Order, Crystal Quartz, waveplates based upon a waveplate diameter of 10mm. The waveplates are offered unmounted with a diameter of 10mm or mounted in a 12.7mm or 25.4mm anodized aluminum mounting ring, both with a clear aperture of 8mm. Tower’s 10mm Zero Order waveplates provide users with crystal quartz waveplates that have a clear aperture of 8mm. These waveplates have an air space between two crystal quartz plates that form the zero order capability. These 10mm waveplates are made from laser quality crystal quartz and each plate is anti-reflection, AR, coated on both sides. Standard retardations are 1⁄2 and 1⁄4 wave. There are 49 standard wavelengths, ranging from 248nm to 2020nm.

Infrared Detectors

Cal Sensors (Santa Rosa, CA) has announced two new infrared detector lines. The first is a new line of single element PbS detectors designed for high-volume, cost-sensitive applications such as fire safety and flame detection, as well as process and quality control applications. The second is a new line of multi-channel PbS and PbSe detectors that provide sensitivity across the one to five micron wavelength range. The detectors feature real time correction for varying operational conditions, making them suitable for a variety of applications including industrial and medical gas analysis, auto and aviation emissions analysis, environmental applications such as stack monitoring, greenhouse gas analysis and overseeing air quality in confined spaces.

Power Supplies

TDK-Lambda Americas (San Diego, CA & Neptune, NJ) has launched a new line of 1600W front-end power supplies for use in distributed, hot-pluggable and redundant power systems. The HFE1600 series operate off a universal AC input of 85 to 265 VAC, with active PFC, and provides a well regulated DC output of 12V, 24V or 48V. Operating efficiencies of up to 92% are typical. With the 19-inch rackmount enclosure as many as five supplies can be paralleled with automatic load-sharing to provide up to 7600W of output power. The HFE1600 supplies, each measuring 1.61"H x 3.35"W x 11.8"L, can be used individually or as many as five can be mounted in a 1U-high 19-inch rack enclosure to form a paralleled connected, load-sharing, hot-swap, N + M redundant 7.6 kW power system.
