BOULDER, Colo., 25 Nov. 2007. Scientech Inc. in Boulder, Colo., is introducing a line of calorimeter laser measurement systems using intelligent detector technology.
These systems consist of a handheld meter and a choice of thermal detectors including 8-, 16-, 25-, 50-, 100-, and 200-millimeter aperture models. A field calibration tool is optional, which helps calibrate systems without sending them back to the factory for annual calibrations.
The Astral Series S AI310 or AI310D indicators are compact, portable, handheld devices in rugged, metal cases. The AI310 marries a 4-digit liquid crystal display along with an analog needle meter movement for laser tuning with no possible misinterpretation of digits.
The AI51D is the digital-only version of the AI51. Either meter can be powered by the standard wall mounted power supply/battery charger, the optional USB data interface, or the optional battery. Optional meter accessories include a lithium-poly battery, a non-skid weighted base mounting system, a soft case, a hard-sided carrying case, and a USB data interface with drivers.
The Astral Series S detectors are available in either surface- or volume-absorbing models that sport apertures from 8 to 200 millimeters. The surface-absorbing models are for measuring CW lasers, while the volume-absorbing models are for pulsed lasers using either the Watts mode or single-pulse energy mode. Some large aperture models will measure single-pulse energy as strong as 1000 joules.
Each detector also comes with a NIST-traceable calibration certificate. Standard equipment for the detectors includes a 1.27-centimeter-diameter-by-8.9-centimeters-long mounting post for mounting to optical tables.
Some models also include an aperture extension for blocking out unwanted environmental light sources. Optional accessories for the detectors include electric substitution heater coils for calibration, carrying cases, fiber optic adapters, bases, and an isoperibol enclosure.
