Irvine, CA – September 6, 2016 – Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in photonic solutions, introduces the 841-PE-USB virtual power and energy meter. Equipped with a USB interface and an additional analog output, Newport’s compact power meter can turn any PC into a powerful virtual optical power meter control system.

The 841-PE-USB is an ideal solution when equipment space is tight or multiple power meter channels need to be controlled. The virtual optical power and energy meter supports Windows XP/7/8/10 in 32 and 64 bit and comes bundled with Newport’s powerful PMManager™ application software for multi-channel laser power analysis.

“The 841-PE-USB is compatible with all Newport photodiode detectors with DB15 connectors as well as the 919P series thermopile detectors and 919E pyroelectric detectors,” says Jay Jeong, Sr. Manager Product Marketing at Newport. “It will also be compatible with Newport’s soon to be released PEPS series of power/energy position sensors as well as the upcoming LIAD series of lock-in amplifier detectors.”
