Ophir StarLab 3.30

MKS Instruments has announced its easy-to-use laser measurement software Ophir StarLab 3.30, that turns a PC into a multi-channel laser power/energy display station. The new version supports expanded network access via the Ophir EA-1 Ethernet Adapter or Quasar Bluetooth Adapter, user-defined pass/fail limits, and multiple pre-defined startup configurations.

StarLab 3.30 provides graphically displayed data in the form of line plots, histograms, bar charts, and simulated analogue needles. Advanced measurement processing functions include power or energy density, multi-channel comparisons, and user-defined mathematical equations. New user-defined pass and fail limits allow selection of the upper and lower bounds of an acceptable measurement. Then, working in conjunction with the software's Screen Capture feature, the user can generate final inspections reports.

StarLab 3.30 works with all types of Ophir sensors. Data can be collected from thermal, pyroelectric, and photodiode heads using any of Ophir's laser power/energy meters, PC interfaces, or combinations of the two.
