IDT - PIV Systems

IDT - Integrated Design Tools

PIV camera systemsIDT's PIV systems fully integrate lasers, optics, and digital cameras in a turn-key package. The synchronization of the components is achieved via a flexible computer controlled timing module via a USB interface. The system includes a comprehensive software solution (proVision) to acquire and process the image data.

System Benefits

Reliability
The system provides incorporates the most accurate and reliable correlation algorithm, providing 2-D and 3-D vector fields with the highest data density and free from spurious data.

Compatibility
The PIV hardware and software are fully compatible with the "double exposure" enabled cameras (MotionScope and MotionPro).

Portability and Ease of Use
The high framing rate cameras and timing controller use the USB-2 serial interface or Gigabit network allowing a laptop PC to be the host computer. From set-up to operation it takes only minutes. Operation is fully controlled by software with easy to recognize iconized tasks and integrated HELP.
