PowerView Cameras for PIV

SKU: 630097

The PowerView Cameras designed specifically for particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements offer the highest sensitivity to capture the movement of micron size seed particles to give you the most accurate PIV results. Various frame rates and shutter speeds are offered to meet your PIV applications. The cameras can also be used for planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) application with high dynamic range for accurate measurement of scalar quantity (temperature or concentration).

Product Details

A wide variety of PowerView Cameras are offered to meet your PIV (or PLIF) measurements. The high pixel resolution gives accurate measurement of the seed particle images to ensure peak-locking is minimized. Further the large number of pixels allows the camera to measure PIV with large field of view. The various frame rate provides the flexibility to conduct the PIV image capture to give you all the flow information.

The compact, rugged design of the camera allows it to be used in many flow environments. The camera can be configured for 2D planar-PIV with single camera, stereo-PIV with two cameras and volumetric PIV with four cameras.

A list of the different cameras is given in the table below. Select the one most appropriate for your PIV (or PLIF) applications. Consult with our fluid experts to get the proper selection of cameras, laser and other components for your applications.
