Ophir-Spiricon Introduces the Juno Compact USB Laser Sensor Interface
News Release from:
29 March 2010
Ophir-Spiricon, the global leader in precision laser measurement, today announced Juno, the smart USB sensor to PC interface that converts a laptop or desktop PC into a laser power/energy meter. A compact USB module, the Juno connects any of Ophir-Spiricon's 100+ smart laser sensors - thermal, pyroelectic, and photodiode -- to a PC USB port. The Juno operates with Ophir-Spiricon's StarLab software StarLab logs power and energy; calculates and displays averages, statistics, histograms; and more.
The system can record every energy pulse at up to 10 KHz. Juno is a plug and play module that can be used with a wide variety of laser measurement sensors. Several sensors can be connected to a PC using one Juno module for each sensor; if needed, a USB hub can be used to connect up to eight (8) sensors to one PC. Unlike some competitive offerings, Juno uses a standard USB cable and can be unplugged from one sensor and used on another. No power source is required. Juno is a true USB device that works with all Ophir-Spiricon sensors, including pyroelectric at up to 10 KHz, stated Gary Wagner, President, Ophir-Spiricon. Unlike sensors with the USB unit built into the cable, Juno can be attached and unattached at will, obviating the need to buy a separate USB interface for each sensor. And with Juno, you can use the same senor with a direct PC connection or with a standard meter.
