With low weight and small size, the VGEN-SP series is easily deployed. Housed in a robust assembly that meets industrial standards and fitted with a metal armored fiber cable, VGEN-SP lasers deliver a high quality, near diffraction-limited output beam. The lasers’ solid construction is maintenance free and reliable, ensuring long-life operation at low operational cost. VGEN-SP LIDAR lasers are rugged and can stand up to the tough conditions and requirements of airborne LIDAR applications for a robust and stable platform.
To verify and analyze the output power of your VGEN-SP laser, we recommend the Ophir 10A (7Z02637) or 30A-BB-18 (7Z02692) 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 VGEN-SP, depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
