Hmmm, just out of curiosity; I still have the tracking status stuck on the first step, and it hasn't been updated for 4 days now.

Is this similar with more people who ordered the LPM-1 super-master-perfect-meter?
wanna see it mooovvvee :

hahah excellent ;D glad to hear it, thanks for setting this up man

If I had even a little spare time I would be checking in more often, but I barely have time for sleep these days! Pumped for the next GB though.

JUST KIDDING :P hahaha ;D (Honestly... I tried to make sure nothing was messed up and double and triple checked... Hope everything is in order :)

Got mine today. Thanks for organizing this. Been a while since I've had time to play with the lasers, but I briefly ran several of the green DX's I have into the meter. I was shocked by the amount of IR at 808nm, even with IR cut filters in place. I'm wondering if there's something I may be doing wrong. I can see a definite decrease in IR with my IR pass webcam when I have the filters over the laser, but the LPM doesn't seem to show much difference. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jon

I believe you need an IR pass filter in order to properly measure.

Glad to hear you got it Joniverson

How was the packaging?

To measure the IR you need an IR pass filter so that you only measure the IR, and as one of my past reviews stated, and other will tell you in more detail, IR on a webcam seems a lot more than it really is. :-/ It could be very bright on the webcam but end up being just a few mW of actual output.

On the LPM, measuring 'IR' doesn't measure IR only, but rather calibrates the sensor to output in terms of IR values, and the same is true for all the other wavelengths. If you put a red laser and measure it with the 532nm measurement, you'll get a value, but it would be wrong :P

I would take a look at the nice writeup and mod that Mike did. It's an excellent way to place the filter in front of the LPM, one that I will do as well because I tested it myself and saw how good it is. ;D

Use that mod and add an IR pass, IR block, the ND-8... etc and you'll have an amazing tool that could pretty much serve all your needs perfectly!

Congrats and I'm glad you're liking it... and I'm sure you will for a long time to come as well

Default Re: ** IT'S OFFICIAL **  Laser Power Meter GB

The packing was great. Good enough in fact that I'll be using the box/ peanuts for another purpose entirely
I own several IR pass filters, one being a 780 nm IR pass. I'll have to try and track down the review you mentioned for the best wavelength of filter.

Actually, I am experiencing the opposite: very little visibility on the webcam, but high output in IR on the meter. So, I am suspecting lack of the filter being the reason.

OK.... makes a lot more sense now. On one of my Leadlight clones, I am getting about 13 mW at 532 and with the 780 IR pass in place, about 2 mW at 808. This is without the Leadlight IR cut filter that I made for it. With the IR cut and IR pass in front of the LPM, I get maybe 11 mW at 532 and practically no IR at 808. Makes a LOT more sense now. I think this 780 nm pass filter will do nicely.

Thanks for the pointer in the right direction

Jon

The Schuler IR-78 IR pass has well known characteristics, which was good and made an ideal candidate for the IR pass filter. It passes about 80% IR at the 800 nm wavelength, so I get a pretty accurate IR readout from the meter with this.

The good news is that, as I've often seen Senkat say, the DX's ARE in fact pretty darn good as far as IR is concerned and none of my units appear to be leaking more than 30% without filters. With outboard filters of course this number is greatly reduced.

I'll bet much of the IR hype about these lasers stems from misuse of the meter as I initially did myself at first. Without the IR pass, most of the lasers showed nearly equal amounts of green and IR which would easily be misinterpreted as a hazardous IR emitter

Daedal,
I received my meter today and I want to thank you from the top and bottom of my heart.. :P I have not yet played with it but I did at least put the battery in it..I love the back lit display...very easy to read.. I will try to play with it later this evening..I am thinking about a quick way to mount the filter until I can do as Mike has. Thanks again..
