Scientific CCD Camera

(Product ID: PSP-CCD-C, PSP-CCD-M)

The PSP-CCD is a 2-megapixel CCD camera used for pressure and temperature sensitive paint data acquisition.  The camera is small and lightweight allowing for an array of cameras to be mounted in a tight place for larger scale models and applications.  Communication with the PSP-CCD is via Gigabit Ethernet.  The camera comes in two options, one a color sensor and one a monochrome sensor.  The color camera is used in Binary PSP and particle shadow velocimetry applications whereas the monochrome version is used in monochrome PSP or surface stress sensitive film applications.

Binary pressure sensitive paint data is acquired using a CCD color array (PSP-CCD-C). Rather than use optical filters in front of the camera lens, the filtering is applied on the chip using a Bayer filter.  The Bayer filter separates the two spectrally different signals from the Binary pressure sensitive paint.

The PSP-CCD features an easy-to-use interface, known as ProAcquire for both the color and monochrome platforms.  This interface, known as ProAcquire, integrates all of the necessary controls into a streamlined interface.

ProAcquire also features what is known as “multi-camera” mode.  This optional add-on to ProAcquire is used to control mutiple cameras over the local network via a single user interface.  For applications where the acquisition from multiple cameras needs to be seamlessly synchronized, the multi-camera software add-on is a must.
