PC-Link: USB Interface

• Convert Your PC Into a Single or Dual Channel Power / Energy Meter

 LaserPoint’s PC-Link is a smart head to USB interface that converts any PC or laptop into a powerful instrument which measures, analyses and records power and energy from any of LaserPoint detector heads.
PC-Links are supplied with LaserPoint’s user-friendly communication software packages for single channel or dual channel operations.
When 2 heads are connected to the PC via two PCLinks,
the dual channel SW is accessible to have data or compare signals from both heads .
To work with PC-Links is very easy: it is sufficient to install the software, connect the heads to the interface units and these latter to the USB ports of a PC. No other operation and external power source are needed.
This sophisticated monitor is plug and play with all LaserPoint heads. The advanced features of PC-Link, together with the fact that it is very compact and has low weight, make this monitor an ideal partner for service applications, laboratory or OEM use offering the convenience, flexibility and value of computer-based operations.
The PC-Link is infact the candidate for use in laser machines, in particular when associated to LaserPoint’s FIT-H (Fast Integrative Thermopile Heads) family of OEM detectors, that work up to 6KW without the need of water cooling.


• Rich and Versatile Laser Monitoring

The use of PC-Link is straightforward. The unit will recognize the power/energy head as soon as it is plugged-in; furthermore, the PCLink will use its anticipation circuitry to insure a fast response and will use the calibration data stored in the intelligent connector (IIS) of each head to provide the most accurate measurement .
The software packages for Single Channel and Dual Channel operation supplied with the PC Link are extremely rich. One feature offers the possibility to access to the User’s Own Calibration Factor (UCF) and a there is also X10 gain to enhance measurement flexibility (eg low power measurements to 20μW resolution ).
Both SW versions allow to measure, analyse with full statistical functions (Min., Max., mean, and standard deviation) and record power and energy from all LaserPoint heads without the need of a display.
Data from each detector can be logged simultaneously to file.
The PC-2-Link software package includes in addition Mathematical functions to compare signals from both channel, e.g. A/B or A-B.
The same SW also includes a ZOOM function which permits to see the details, e.g. random events or small fluctuations, within both signal tracks.
