LaVision presents a cost effective entry to instantaneous volumetric PIV


Effect of Motion Tracking Enhancement on the reconstruction of vortex structures: MART reconstruction (left) is not enough to extract the true vortex structures from the laminar jet flow. Only with MTE (right), the vortex rings and their breakdown farther upstream become clearly visible.

LaVision adds a new Tomo-PIV software package to its volumetric measurements techniques enabling analysis of images from volumetric PIV measurements using only 2 cameras

LaVision’s new Tomo-PIV software package allows a cost effective entry to instantaneous volumetric PIV by combining the new reconstruction method Motion Tracking Enhancement (MTE)* together with the well proven Multiplicative Algebraic Reconstruction Technique (MART). This enables volumetric PIV experiments using only 2 cameras. Using the traditional 4 camera setup still results in higher spatial resolution and larger volume thicknesses can be examined, the new 2 camera approach however is a very good compromise between measurement accuracy and investment effort. Furthermore an easy upgrade of existing Stereo-PIV systems to 3D3C PIV measurements is possible with this new LaVision software package.

Hermetically insulated stack type actuators offer long life under extreme conditions

The Piezosystem Jena P/S series piezo actuators are enclosed by hermetically sealed housing meeting the requirement of the IP 68 protection classification. Thus the piezoelectric element is shielded against external influences, such as extreme temperatures, high pressure and corrosive environments - conditions in which conventional actuators reach only a limited lifetime of a few hours. Unlike the series P / S, which achieves an Mean Time To Failure of 36,000 hours (for use below 85 ° C and 100 V).

Translators are available in versions with a stroke of 18µm to 70µm. Hereby the piezo drive is able to realize a blocking force of up to 3400N. The construction of the housing tightly encloses the stack, thereby avoiding mechanical play. A built in pre-load mechanism and mounting attachments make installation easy and handy. The M3 thread in the bottom plate allows for easy adaptation into existing systems.

Ocean Optics ecoVis VIS-NIR Light Source

Ocean Optics EcoVIS

Ocean Optics ecoVis is a compact, low-voltage VIS-NIR light source (400-2500 nm) with built-in cuvette holder that’s great for basic lab measurements in teaching labs and other research environments.

The ecoVis has a rugged, solid alloy housing that helps to dissipate heat and in-line fiber ports for absorbance and fluorescence measurements.

ecoVis is small – it’s just 95 mm x 50 mm and weighs 265 g – making it attractive for labs where space is at a premium. Also, the unit has a built-in 1 cm pathlength cuvette holder and a chromium-plated reflective insert that increases the output for fluorescence, can be adjusted through 90º to block the light path for dark measurements and holds the cuvette securely in place.
