Specialized Cameras

pixelfly double shutter

This high performance digital 12 bit CCD camera system features state of the art in CCD and electronics technology. The system consists of an ultra compact camera head, which either connects to a standard PCI or a compact PCI board via a high speed serial data link. The available exposure times range from 10 •žs to 10 s. Two images with the short interframing time of 10 •žs can be recorded. A digital temperature compensation is integrated instead of a space consuming thermo-electrical cooling unit. All camera functions can be remotely accessed and controlled via digital interface. This compact piv camera system is perfectly suited for many flow imaging applications, like flow visualization, spray imaging and combustion imaging.
