Laser Pulse Synchronization

  • Trigger frequencies and synchronization up to 32 kHz
  • Adjustable delay for perfect synchronization
  • Usable as pulse generator

The micro processor controlled ML1630 (Laser Synchron Device) allows for the synchronization of pulsed lasers with the image acquisition of the camera. To that effect the ML1630 is controlled by our Beamlux II software. Typically the trigger signal and the pulse are delayed against each other. To compensate for this the ML1630 can set the correct time delay such that the camera records the laser pulse when the shutter is opened.

the ML1630 can be employed with all Metrolux cameras up to a trigger frequency of 32 kHz. Very short exposure times are possible with the ML1630. Different modes of operation are implemented. One option is for the laser to be used to trigger both the beam profiler software and the camera. It is also possible to control the timing of both the laser and the camera with the software.
