LaVision is offering a wide range of cameras for operation purposes. Very common used for strain and deformation analysis for normal speed imaging are the CCD models Imager E-lite andImager X-lite.
The Imager E-lite cameras are high sensitivity, high resolution digital cameras, equipped with an interline transfer chip with progressive scan readout. The cameras deliver 12 bit digital images and comes with a fast Gigabit Ethernet interface for distances up to 100 m. In combination with its small and lightweight design, these cameras are ideal for flexible and portable use. Models are available with 2 and 5 mega pixel.
LaVision‘s Imager X-lite cameras are advanced progressive scan, fully programmable CCD cameras. They deliver high quality images, combined with high spatial resolution. Models are available with 8, 11, 16, 29 mega pixel.
For Strain applications with highly transient phenomena we offer various high speed CMOS cameras with frame rates up to several kHz at highest spatial resolution.
The Imager MX 4M camera has a 4 million pixel 12 bit sensor with excellent sensitivity characteristics, but is able to work at frame rates up to 180 Hz at maximum resolution. With this extremely compact and cost effective solution it is also possible to use a reduced AOI and get up to 700 Hz with a 1 million pixel "letterbox" region; often ideal for the typical high aspect ratio specimens.
HighSpeedStar, Imager pro HS 4M and Phantom CMOS sensors with frame rates up to several kHz at highest spatial resolution.
