PE-900 Photo-Elastic Visualisation System - SEE SOUNDMaterials Research Institute102, Waterloo, Canada
The PE-900 introduced by Materials Research Institute allows you to see sound. Equipped with a custom strobe light, zoom-macro video lens and high resolution video camera, the PE-900 allows imaging of ultrasonic pulses in glass and other clear media. Users have the option to use the high energy pulser provided or connect to other ultrasonic instruments (including phased array) that have TTL triggers.
The system comes complete with laptop computer and software to capture still and video images. Also included is software to perform beam analysis using image intensity mapping. Two glass samples are provided with a probe and selection of wedges so that the system can be assembled and running within a matter of minutes.
Miniature portable photoelastic visualisation system complete with
The specimen mounting area is located along the light path with a nominal 75mm diameter illumination area that can be imaged using a macro focusing lens mounted on the CMOS camera.
Software is provided for viewing and analysing the projected images on a supplied laptop computer. Capture and save both still and video images.
