Terahertz Control Unit
T-Ray® 5000 Series

Terahertz Control Unit

The T-Ray® 5000 Control Unit monitors and controls all aspects of THz generation and detection, precisely delivering controlled optical signals to the terahertz transmitters and receivers, or the T-Gauge® Sensor Heads, enabling them to generate and receive terahertz signals.

Product Description

The T-Ray® 5000 Control Unit is appropriate for use in industrial, nondestructive testing, and scientific applications. It monitors and controls all aspects of THz generation and detection. It delivers precisely controlled optical signals to the terahertz transmitters and receivers, or the T-Gauge® Sensor Heads, enabling them to generate and receive terahertz signals. Measured data are processed within the Control Unit at a rate of up to 1 kHz, making theT-Ray® 5000 one of the fastest terahertz systems available.

The data generated by the T-Gauge® Sensor Heads and processed by the T-Ray® 5000 Control Unit enable multiple measurements of a product simultaneously. One T-Gauge® Sensor can measure the basis weight, caliper thickness, multi-layer thicknesses, density and moisture content of a sample in a single pass.

Attached to a separate transmitter and receiver, the T-Ray® 5000 Control Unit can perform spectroscopic measurements as well as transmission and reflection imaging.
