The Spectra-Physics Explorer® One™ XP - available at both 532 nm and 355 nm - is the world's first compact all-in-one laser that combines the laser head and power supply into a single package that fits into the palm of your hand.With the industry’s smallest footprint, light 3 kg weight, air-cooled design and rugged construction, the Explorer One XP laser is simple to integrate into machine tools and is ideal for use on a moving gantry.
The Explorer One XP laser models are available in the UV at 355 nm and in the green at 532 nm. The Explorer One XP 355 delivers an average power of 2 W at 80 kHz and the Explorer One XP 532 provides an average power of more than 5 W at 80 kHz.
The Explorer One XP laser delivers exceptional performance including short pulse width for minimum heat affected zone, unmatched pulse-to-pulse stability and superior beam quality. It operates across a wide repetition rate range from single shot up to 300 kHz (355 nm) and 500 kHz (532 nm). With its short laser resonator cavity, Explorer One XP lasers produce high peak powers that in some materials can outperform higher average power lasers. The superior mode quality (M2<1.1 typical) over the full repetition-rate range leads to improved spatial resolution and larger depth-of-focus. The Spectra-Physics patented intra-cavity design enables efficient conversion to the green and UV, resulting in the highest pulse-to-pulse stability for consistent processing and higher yields.
Based on the proven Explorer architecture, the Explorer One XP laser is rugged and highly reliable for demanding 24/7 applications. All optical components are soldered in place to ensure exceptional ruggedness and durability in harsh operating environments. No solder flux is used, thereby minimizing organic contaminants that can degrade laser performance. Explorer One XP lasers are tested to endure bare product shock and vibration with accelerations of up to 100 g's.
For ease of use, the Explorer One XP series is equipped with the E-Pulse™ feature, offering constant pulse energy which is ideal for applications with varying repetition rates. Additionally, the system can be operated using TTL and analog control signals. Real-time pulse energy values are available on the integrated Analog Port. For applications that rely on the synchronization of multiple lasers, the Explorer One XP offers a dedicated port to operate multiple lasers synchronously or with precisely separated laser pulses.
With its tiny footprint, ease of integration, exceptional performance, rugged and reliable construction and versatile features, Explorer One XP lasers the ultimate, air-cooled DPSS solution.
