SE200 / SE400 HIGH SPEED PYROMETERS
The AMTRON Pyrometer series SE200 and SE400 offer highest measurement speed and noise immunity even at low process temperatures. Their PY100 and PY200 series sensors contain the complete analog-to-digital signal conversion and an integrated flash memory for parameters. Compact control units (series CU100-CU500) are available with many different interface options.Highlights are the simultaneous processing of up to 15 sensors and the interfacing to galvanometer scanheads for exact positon readout.
Suitable for plastic welding, soldering, hardening, selective laser melting
Closed loop control or logging of process temperature or radiation
Detection rate up to 100kHz (depending on detection wavelength)
Direct digital link to CS400 series (SE200)
Spatially resolved data acquisition in combination with either multiple pyrometers or galvanometer scanhead
Robust signal transmission without the need of fiber cables (up to 20m)
For stationary and hand-guided laser heads
CS120 LASER DIODE CONTROLLER
PM200 POWER SENSORS
CU190 PROCESS CONTROLLER
The process controller CU190 stands out with its fast power modulation, which makes it ideal for regulating and controlling the processes between the system and the laser. The device offers a range of connections via different fieldbus systems. The process controller uses various input parameters such as feedrate, external sensors or trigger/gate to calculate and control the analog and digital laser power. The control unit modulates the amplitude, pulse width, or frequencies with fast cycle times of 1μs. In contrast to conventional system controllers, the CU190 process controller offers fully customizable laser control, which easily integrates into existing processes.
