  • LaVision introduces two new 4MPx high-speed camera models

    LaVision introduces two new 4MPx high-speed camera models

    3757 3 v1840

    The LaVision Phantom v2640 and Phantom v1840 models are the latest addition to the ultrahigh-speed camera series.

    Both camera models have a resolution of 4Mpx and an exceptional image quality as well as a low noise level. The Phantom v1840 achieves up to 4,510 fps at full resolution and the Phantom v2640 up to 6,600 fps. Both camera models feature multiple operating modes (high-speed, correlated double sampling (CDS) and binned) for maximum flexibility. With a minimum interframe time of 500 ns, they are particularly suitable for PIV applications.

    LaVision offers both camera models either with a standard F-mount front panel or optionally with an M42 front panel. The cameras are perfectly integrated into LaVision's DaVis 10 software.

  • LaVision introduces a series of new cameras for PIV applications

    PIV cameras

    LaVision's well-proven very sensitive Imager sCMOS camera now comes with a modern and ultra-fast Camera Link HS interface allowing high data throughput. The connection from camera head to frame grabber via fiber optical link enables safe data transfer over long distances.

    For moderate velocity ranges the Imager MX 2M and MX 5M USB3 cameras are best suited. The cameras offer frame rates around 100 Hz, in combination with a 50 Hz or 100 Hz PIV laser they are ideal for applications in water or other fluids. All cameras are compact and light weight and have an in-built double shutter mode for short interframe times for a wide range of PIV flow field applications. The new Imager SX 6M and SX 9M cameras are price-efficient, low noise cameras and provide a modern USB3 Vision interface. The cameras combine high spatial resolution for larger scale PIV application with high frame rates.

  • LaVision FRAME Imaging Technology: Fastest camera in the world

     

    Forget high-speed cameras capturing 100 000 images per second. A research group at Lund University in Sweden has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of a second. This is faster than has previously been possible.

    Lund University has developed a high-speed camera featuring 5 trillion frames per second using the LaVision FRAME imaging technology.

    The novel FRAME (Frequency Recognition Algorithm for Multiple Exposures) approach opens up new possibilities in ultra-fast imaging at reduced costs. The technique permits a conventional camera to store several images simultaneously in a single exposure on its sensor. The resulting multiply exposed image is processed by the FRAME algorithm which reconstructs the original individual images.

  • LaVision Intensified CCD cameras

    LaVision Intensified CCD cameras

    LaVision's intensified CCD (ICCD) cameras find applications in low level light as well as gated, time-resolved detection in conjunction with e.g. pulsed lasers. Due to the short gating (shutter speeds down to below 80 ps) scattered and background light can be effectively reduced. A precise timing unit for control of hardware components is included in all ICCD camera systems. LaVision also offers dedicated and programmable synchronization/timing and delay units for this purpose. 

    IRO Image Intensifier upgrade allows easy upgrade of all LaVision CCD camera to full ICCD performance. This system yields maximum spatial resolution without intensifier for e.g. PIV as well as highest sensitivity with intensifier for e.g. LIF imaging. The IRO is lens coupled to CCD camera and allows gating times down to 5 ns.

    LaVision's PicoStar is an ultra-fast gated, intensified CCD camera system with very short gating times in the picosecond (ps) range.
