Shock Absorber Smoothes Vibration for Laser Power-Energy Sensors
Ophir Photonics announced the Shock Absorber – a mounting post designed to allow the operation of sensitive pyroelectric laser power/energy sensors in an environment with vibration. This special mount smoothes out vibration and eliminates false triggering, reducing the sensor's susceptibility to vibration from two to 10 times, according to the company. The Shock Absorber mounting post features a screw embedded in rubber that provides a flexible barrier between the post and the sensor head. This significantly reduces false triggering. It works with all Ophir energy sensors, including the PE Series of pyroelectric detectors that provide high damage threshold, high pulse energies, and wide spectral range.
