"Glaser Jailer" is a failsafe, active laser safety window that enables high powered multi-kW lasers to be switched off immediately if the laser beam strikes the window. It is suitable for all laser powers, wavelengths and waveforms. The system ensures personnel outside the cabin are kept safe. The window can be fitted within the panels of Lasermet’s Laser Castle laser safety cabin or it can be fitted in an aperture in the customer’s own laser safety cabin.
How it works
If the laser beam strikes the window, it first impacts the detecting circuitry which switches the laser off. During the switch-off period any residual laser radiation is prevented from escaping by the passive filter window layer. The active window includes detector circuits which are constantly monitored by the interlock controller. If the laser strikes the window the electrical characteristics of the window change. The controller detects this and isolates the laser safety input thereby preventing laser radiation within 50ms.
“Glaser Jailer” can be combined with Lasermet’s “Laser Jailer” active laser guarding system to provide a complete active solution throughout the entire enclosure. This revolutionary active technology is already proven - and is currently in operation worldwide. Following a direct hit the window should be replaced but only after an investigation has been completed as to the cause of the direct hit and corrective measures have been implemented to prevent it re-occurring.
Glaser Jailer can be incorporated into, and form part of, a certified Class 1 Laser Enclosure (for multi-kW Class 4 lasers) conforming to BS EN IEC 60825-1 and ANSI Z136
