“Power Technology Introduces New PNF™ Laser Module for Machine Vision”

LITTLE ROCK, AR, September 7, 2010 – Power Technology, Inc. (PTI), a leader in the Photonics Industry for over 40 years, is introducing the new PNF™ laser module designed specifically for Machine Vision applications. These applications include 3D Profiling & Imaging, Dimensional Scanning, High Speed Road & Rail Inspection, Web Inspection, Fluorescence, and Illumination.  The new PNF module with its superior electronics can serve as a drop-in replacement for most existing Machine Vision lasers.     

“Power Technology is well suited to meet the needs of the Machine Vision market. Our PNF structured light lasers are uniquely engineered to meet the demands of Machine Vision applications”, stated Walter Burgess, VP of Sales and Engineering. “We are excited about our newest offering which delivers from 0.1mW to 200mW of output power with a wavelength range between 375nm and 2,330nm.”  Mr. Burgess went on to say, “Additional design features include uniform intensity (non-Gaussian) line generators, unique Variable Focus™ Technology, good wavelength stability, superior optical power stability, and CW, digital or analog modulation up to 100MHz.” 

James Jackson, Sales Engineer, remarked “The PNF Series boasts the highest output power and fastest modulation speeds of any similar laser module on the market today. It can be configured for optimal performance at close or long range. Its unique Variable Focus Technology allows the user to calibrate the focus of the module and then re-tune the line generator for optimal performance”. 

PTI is focused on meeting the technically challenging, high-speed, consistent reliability requirements of the Machine Vision and Inspection market. The company offers an array of custom design and manufacturing services which include high and low volume US production, custom engineering, customized connectors and beam profiling.
