Innovative Beam Profiler (1/1.2″) with integrated Filter Wheel

The BeamOn U3, due to its special features, is actually a total measuring station for various laser beams.

Its high resolution detector of 2.35 MegaPixels has 12 bit dynamic range and a spectral response of 350-1600 nm.

By a full set of attachments, the versatility of the device is greatly improved, allowing measurement of high and low power lasers as well as large and very small beams.

Advances in USB bandwidth provide a high refreshment rate of measured beam. For extreme power levels, a pressurized air-cooled beam sampler is easily attached to provide measurements of laser beams of a few kilowatts.
