Illumination for PIV

We offer a wide range of illumination systems from leading manufacturers. The choice is based on your specific needs.

Pulsed laser diodes

Pulsed laser diodes with 5 or 20 Watts are a low-cost illumination source for PIV studies of lower flow velocities.

The standard PIV system uses a single camera and allows to capture two-dimensional flow velocities. We offer a wide range of illumination systems - contact us!

Synchronizer & Software

Synchronizers and PIV software are the key components of a PIV system. We develop several components ourselves, but also work in close cooperation with our partner company ILA 5150 GmbH.
