12/02/2009

An iPhone can be used to operate and monitor a laser system

Operating and monitoring a laser system via telephone? The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), in cooperation with the industrial partner neoLASE GmbH, has developed a laser system control which can be used with an iPhone.
The iPhone can be used for complete control of the laser system, independent of the location. The range of application extends from monitoring laser parameters of sensitive processes to remote diagnostics for servicing. Laser controls with more than a hundred analogue and digital in- and outputs as well as with 30 PID-controllers are possible. By means of touch screen displays, user-friendly and freely programmable graphic surfaces are available, which can be configured for the input/output of laser parameters.
