Many types of PIV systems, such as standard 2D-PIV,Stereo 3D-PIV, micro PIV, Time resolved PIV, etc., are available. Each system consists of different components.
The integrated PIV software Koncerto controls all the components and analyze the velocity field.
Capable of measuring 2 velocity components (u and v) in a plane defined by the laser light sheet. It consists of a double pulse laser, a double shutter camera, BZ-60 light sheet optics, TT1680 timing controller, Koncerto software, and PC. Typical time resolution is 10 Hz.
Stereo 3D-PIV system
Capable of measuring all 3 components in a plane defined by the laser light sheet. It consists of the second camera, Scheimpflug camera mount, calibration target in addition to the 2D-PIV system. Typical time resolution is 10 Hz.
Time resolved PIV system
Capable of obtaining very high time resolution up to around 50 KHz. A high speed video camera and a high repetition rate pulse laser are used.
Micro PIV system
For microfluidics such as MicroTAS, Lab on a chip, etc. An optical microscope is used. Piezo electric focus scanner is available.
Confocal Scanning Micro PIV system
A high speed confocal scanner and a high sensitivity high speed video are used. It obtains very high spatial resolution in Z direction. Piezo electric focus scanner is available.
