It is our pleasure to announce a new Visual C++ tutorial for interfacing DataRay Camera and Slit Scan Profilers using the DataRay OCX. The DataRay OCX is an ActiveX component that can be accessed from a variety of Windows based environments. It includes ActiveX controls that allow users to build an interface that is capable of sending and receiving data from the DataRay software. The OCX is automatically generated and registered with the Windows operating system upon installation of the standard DataRay software. Complete documentation of the DataRay OCX is available for reference. Before writing an interface using the DataRay OCX, we recommend that you learn to use your beam profiler in the standard DataRay software.

Our customers often ask us what type of beam profiler they should use to measure their laser beam(s). In this blog post, we explain the relative advantages and disadvantages of a scanning slit profiler and a camera-based profiler.
