Gentec Electro-Optics

Beam Dumps

Gentec Electro-Optics has launched two models in its Beam Dumps family of laser power detectors. The BD series is rugged and easy-to-use, simply attach the water-cooling and the device is ready to use.

Like the company’s high power HP detectors, these beam dumps have a highly resistant absorber that can withstand several kilowatts of laser power in continuous mode. The device’s aperture of 100mm in diameter accommodates large beams. An isolation tube (available as an option) helps reduce back reflection; two models are offered: 4kW and 12kW.

The Beamage-4M

Gentec Electro-Optics, Inc., has just launched a new 4.2 MPixels model in its popular Beamage Series. The Beamage-4M presents twice as many pixels as the regular Beamage-3.0, in the same compact package.

  • 4.2 MPixels
  • Very large sensor of 11.3 x 11.3 mm
  • Twice as many pixels as the Beamage-3.0 with the same high resolution (Pixel size of 5.5 μm)

The new Beamage-4M will be available in November 2014 but orders can be placed now. For more information, you can download the preliminary specifications sheet of this product.

Integra series of detectors

Gentec Electro-Optics has launched its meterless Integra Series, a new line of all-in-one detectors that combine a detector and a meter in one product. The meter presents a direct USB connection so it can be plugged into a PC. The PC-Gentec-EO software supplied with the product allows power measurements to be taken within seconds.

Each detector of the All-in-One Integra Series offers the same performance as the usual detector and meter combination, from picowatt to kilowatt and from femtojoule to joule. All of Gentec’s most popular detectors are available with the Integra option.
