Laser optical flow measurement
We offer full Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) systems, adapted to your needs. These example systems are suitable for different applications, ranging from low-cost PIV systems for water and air to high-end Nd:YAG double-pulse lasers for large-scale, high velocity measurements in water and air.
PIV in water up to 1000 Hz, 5W pulsed laser diode incl. synchronizer, camera, software and particles More information
PIV in air up to 15 Hz, 40 W pulsed laser diode array incl. synchronizer, seeding generator, camera and software More information
PIV in air up to 15 Hz, Nd:YAG double-pulses laser, synchronizer, seeding generator, camera and software More information
We offer all kinds of lasers from leading manufacturers, as well as low-cost solutions manufactured by OPTOLUTION.
Pulsed laser diodes with 5, 20 or 40 Watts are a suitable low-cost illumination source for many PIV studies.
We offer a wide range of laser illumination systems suitable for your needs. Contact us
Synchronizers are a key component of PIV systems. We develop several components ourselves, but also work in close cooperation with our partner company ILA 5150 GmbH.
... is a synchronizer for synchronizing cameras and lasers. It is controlled from PIVlab.
... for flexible control of laser and cameras. Made for ultra-fast events and demanding tasks.
OPTOLUTION supports the development of PIVlab, a free 2D/2C PIV toolbox for MATLAB. Additional PIV software is available too.
... a free MATLAB toolbox for analyzing 2D/2C PIV images and for controlling hardware.
For measuring all three velocity components, we offer solutions from our partner company ILA5150. Contact us
We offer several CCD and CMOS cameras from pco and ILA 5150.
One of the most advanced PIV cameras. Short interframing time (200 ns) and 16 bit dynamic range.
Small but powerful - the camera impresses with a small and compact design, but also with the highest quantum efficiency of the PIV market.
Flexible and compact - High resolution and a small interframing time make this camera very attractive for PIV applications.
Controls focus and aperture wirelessly from PIVlab. Incl. auto-focus, lighting and roll / pitch measurement. More information
... for variable light sheets with several divergence angles and parallel light sheet option.
