The OPM150 Power Monitor – Low cost, versatile and small enough to fit into your pocket!

The OPM150 is a versatile power monitor for use in the lab and for laser servicing as well as for OEM applications. This unit is designed for use with a PC only, thus eliminating the need for a display. This makes the OPM150 very economical.

A very wide range of wavelength and powers. What would YOU like?

Various diode materials allow measurement from 250nm up to 2500nm.

Heads are available covering 250-1100nm, 800-1550nm, 400-1600nm, 800-2000nm, 1000-2200nm and 1300-2500nm. Each head is automatically recognized and its individual calibration data are uploaded to the system.

Thus, changing wavelength range is as simple as swapping heads – all with one base unit.

We offer calibrated attenuation filters which extend the range of the free beam heads by up to three orders of magnitude. The user may load up to 5 separate filter curves to expand the dynamic range and functionality of the unit while ensuring proper calibration.

Calibrated integrating spheres compatible to the OPM150 system round up the selection.

With a response time of 100µs and sampling rates up to 600S/s, there is much more to see than with a thermopile sensor. And no thermal drift to worry about either!

The Software – Integration made easy!

The graphical user interface is intuitive to use and easy to read! The software includes a scope function, data logging and a large, digital display – perfect for daily use in the lab or in the field. Further functions such as auto gain and various storage formats are also included.

The OPM150 is small enough to fit into your pocket and is USB powered and controlled. No extra power supply required, no extra cables on the table.

Not only the small size qualifies this instrument for OEM applications. It is very simple and flexible to integrate into your project. The unit comes delivered with drivers for direct communication or to be used as a virtual COM-port. Furthermore, we provide a full software development kit including the source code for the GUI application as well as a demo LabView-VI.

Our philosophy: Make it as simple as possible to use this instrument!
