sensicam qe double shutter - Show Details article

Product Details

This piv cooled digital 12 bit CCD camera system comprises advanced CCD and electronics technology. The system features thermo-electrical cooling of the image sensor (down to – 12 °C), extremely low noise (down to 4 e- rms) and an outstanding quantum efficiency, which achieves a high spectral sensitivity in general and especially in the NIR. Exposure time modes (software selectable) range from 500 ns (fast shutter) to 1000 s (long exposure). In double shutter mode two images with the very short interframing time of 500 ns can be recorded. A high speed serial data link connects the system to the PC (fiber optic link available). This piv camera system is perfectly suited for many sensitive and low light imaging applications, like flow visualization, spray imaging and combustion imaging.

Areas of Application
  • particle image velocimetry (PIV)
  • spray imaging
  • wind tunnels
  • hydrodynamics
  • fuel injection
  • combustion imaging
  • material testing
  • scientific imaging
  • ballistics
