  1. Due to our continuous improvement program, specifications are subject to change without notice.
  2. HighQ-2 is a Class IV - High Power Laser, whose beam is, by definition, a safety and fire hazard. Take precautions to prevent exposure to direct and reflected beams. Diffuse as well as specular reflections can cause severe skin or eye damage.


24/7 Operation

Designed as a reliable OEM laser for 24/7 operation, the HighQ-2 laser combines true turn-key operation and fast cold start turn-on, ensuring quick installation and easy operation. HighQ-2 is equipped with long life diodes, a sealed optical cavity design and is manufactured in a controlled, cleanroom environment. The result  is a highly dependable laser with long lifetime, high uptime and low cost of ownership.

Compatible Power Sensors

To verify and analyze the output power of your HighQ-2 laser, we recommend the Ophir 3A-PF-12 (7Z02720) thermal power sensor and Centauri laser power meter.  Additional information on this laser measurement equipment can be found on the ophiropt.com website.  Other Ophir sensors and meters may also be suitable for the HighQ-2, depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
