Default Unboxing/Review: ARGMeter for Ophir V1.1 - Sinner's Ophir LPM Upgrade!

Finally got some time to post this up, been wanting to do it earlier but couldnt find so much time, This is one helluva LPM so it's worth the share..

To put it in a short succinct statement , It is the most simplicistically advanced LPM setup in the hobby grade category. Everything is beyond describe how easier it makes the whole Ophir based LPM with just this ARGMeter for Ophir Add-On.

Now for those who don't know what it does:
Ophir head requires a complex power input, a +9|GND|-9V in order to power on.. Also needs a voltmeter or Multimeter hooked to the Sensor which gives a reading in mV. The sensors are precalibrated to 1mV=1mW.. If you are using a volmeter panel you will have to use another 6V supply to the voltmeter panel readout! It auto-adjusts the +/-mW (idle) on Ophir so no modifications or coarse adjustments are needed..


- Eliminates the need of two(2x) 9V Batteries +9V|GND|-9V.
- Powers on all the components incl. ophir sensor with just One(1x) 9V battery..
- Adds data-logging to your Ophir head via USB (Arduino).
- Auto-Zeroing.
- LCD Readout with resolution of 0.1mW - Max/Peak Value and Current Value.
- Brightness adjustment levels.

Price for the Add-On: $85.00
You may build your own, Since ARG was generous enough to make his whole project open source.
Here's the link if you want to get one..
http://laserpointerforums.com/f70/ar...ter-80606.html


Lets start from the box/packaging:

ARG did a great job in packaging although i asked for the super cheap snail-mail shipping since i had a very limited budget and couldnt spend $30.00 additional to the Add-On price for faster shipping..



As you can see, It is secured with tape on all sides..



Opened up the Box, with some scissors and cuttin pliers as fast as i could



So a lots of bubblewrap stuffed inside , Very neat and secure!



Contents of the Package:
- USB Cable for DataLogging
- 9V Power Input Cable
- ARGMeter


The ARGMeter comes in Anti-Static bags to prevent from any ESD damage that could happen during the transit , So you dont need to worry about Customs a-holes ruining it since the instructions are clearly written, So no worries there!


FRONT VIEW:


SIDE VIEW:


BACK VIEW:


Now I gathered all the necessary info on Wiring it..

From LEFT to RIGHT
- Black
- Red
- Brown
- Orange

Pretty self explainatory, The best thing about the board is the quality of the components is top-notch. And i simply love the wire connections. Pretty Darn Solid if you ask me, Just the way i wanted it to be!

Now, To Power it on for the First Time:

Got my new 9V Battery, Connected the 9V Input lead that was included in the package.



Finally, It is ON..


Mine come's with Auto-zeroing, That solved the major problem i had which was +4.0mW idle, It wasn't really a problem but now i wont have to subtract that from every reading! Also i can manually Re-Zero with On-board button. Still playing with those to familiarize even further..
The Screen is Liquid Crystal Display (LCD 2.5") has adjustable brigtness levels.

LPM Datalogging - Peregrine Interface:

Just installed the Arduino drivers and downloaded Peregrine, It is connected on COM3 , Figuring out how to make a graph now.. Will upload some LPM Tests soon.

Updates:

Ok, So i finally configured Peregrine - Universal Datalogging interface on my computer! Straight out of the box, Very simple and lightweight but robust I must say, Great work by Trevor..

LPM Graph and peregrine interface is awesome, I simply love this and jumped on it as soon as ARG offered them..
Hey Troy I am considering a 3x6" case , custom made brass/aluminium with brushed metal finish.. I think it can be
ultra portable and easy to store!

@Andrew, I seriously love that ghetto cassette case, I threw all of mines a year ago in the recycle bin.. Now i do
regret, Idk if anyone sells this anymore!

Hits actually a hi 8 video camera tape case but you might get lucky at a garage sale or something.

I see, That's why it fits perfectly into the case.. I kind of like the ghetto look, its a genius solution, but i want it to be secured in a case.. looks like have to design one myself now!

Nice. I'm looking at getting an Ophir head soon and this looks like a nice match to go with it. I am confused about one thing though. Is the $85 price point you mentioned just for the data logger or is that for the ARGMeter and logger? The link to the page with all the ordering and pricing info in the main ARGMeter thread seems broken.

Default Re: Unboxing/Review: ARGMeter for Ophir V1.1 - Sinner's Ophir LPM Upgrade!

Peregrine is FREE and the meter was $85....BTW i dont know if this meter is still being made. ive been on the wait list for a V1.1 for a few months now and last i heard ARG was focusing on a new project. there are a few ARGMeters that come up for sale every now and then so keep you eye out. its a better set up then buying the 5W LaserBee LPM which is a few hundred more than an ARGMeter. be patient and a good deal will pop up soon, i promise or you can go the open source route and build your own since ARG was nice enough to share his plans on making this beast

Peregrine is free and a portion of the sales from the ARGMeter are donated to Trevor
85$ is the whole setup (minus the Ophir) The LPM comes standard with data logging, as it is a digital LPM.
The data logging addon is for analog LPM's.

Default Re: Unboxing/Review: ARGMeter for Ophir V1.1 - Sinner's Ophir LPM Upgrade!

I Wished i could have something like this long ago when i got my ophir, which operates everything with a single 9V and has datalogging in it! I PM'ed alex he said he is working on one prototype, So i waited for months before they were even developed.. and it took another couple of months in transit!
