Laser Technology & Equipment Versatile, Economical Optical Power Meter Digital Photometer Industrial Fiber Optics Measures power levels of laser beams, demodulating optical signals for audio applications and solar experiments. Offers 4 scale measurements from 20 microwatts to 20 milliwatts. Battery power, portability and adjustable detector height offers flexibility. Analog output to 2 banana jacks is a conditioned electrical voltage that is directly proportional to light incident upon the photodetector with a frequency range up to 10 kHz. This allows it to be connected to a strip chart recorder for solar monitoring, oscilloscope for observing time-dependent optical signals or to an amplified speaker for voice transmission. Meter acts as an audio receiver to demodulate laser signals. •4 ranges •All solid state detector & electronic design •Calibrated at 632.8 Nm •Sensitive to visible & IR light Includes metal optical stand, manual, two 9V batteries & case.
