High Power Delivery

As laser technology continues to advance, more and more applications are using laser energy. Small, powerful, cost effective solid state lasers are replacing traditional gas lasers in many systems. When using these kinds of sources, many designers prefer fiber coupled designs over the traditional free space optical path. This conserves space and can eliminate the need for complex articulating heads. The power levels used in these systems require specially designed optical connectors and assemblies. Fiberguide’s High Power SMA and FD-80 connectors are an ideal solution for these systems.

Please use the following calculator to calculate fiber sizes or laser power requirements for your system.

The calculator includes the capability to make calculations for pulsed laser systems and continuous wave laser systems. Calculate laser specs and requirements based on fiber size, or calculate the necessary fiber size for a given laser light source.

If you have custom requirements or design questions, please contact us and our experienced engineers will work to create a solution that fits your needs.
