Thermal Imaging in Vet Science

By Comments Off on Thermal Imaging in Vet Science

Medical examinations of animals can be carried out in an efficient way by applying infrared camera systems. Animal’s body temperature can indicate multiple health problems. These may affect the animal itself, as for instance diseases of the udder or hoof, or they result from animal husbandry, as it is in the case of an incorrect application of saddles causing pressure points and, following, local overheating on horses. Inflammations and lameness are further problems which can be detected with the help of thermography.

The Infratec range of cameras are well equipped to handle the demands for high thermal resolution to give precise measurements that other brands are not able to provide. One such application can be seen in the research article on Evaluation of thermal pattern distributions in racehorse saddles using infrared thermography.

Low Light High Speed Camera Test

By Comments Off on Low Light High Speed Camera Test

The conditions were anything but perfect at AOS’s outdoor crash day for their big insurance company client. The sun was hiding behind a heavily overcast sky, sub-optimal for high speed camera recordings – but not for the M-VIT! The new sensor with 1280 x 800 and up to 4000 frames/sec offers a perfect image without motion blur even under challenging lighting conditions.

Photron Polarisation Cameras

By Comments Off on Photron Polarisation Cameras

Introducing the world’s fastest 2D polarisation camera, at over 1 million frames per second!

Key Uses include:

  • Analysis and visualisation of internal stress distribution during metal processing
  • Evaluation of stress propagation around cracks due to impact fracture
  • Dynamic observation of crystal axis/orientation state on liquid crystal/crystal material
  • Visualisation of fluid stress distribution generated by viscoelastic body or soft matter

Polarisation can measure and visualise various physical quantities and properties

Polarised light cannot be recognised visually but is light where “light waves oscillate in a single plane”. Since the polarisation state of light varies depending on the internal structure of the transmission object and the surface shape of the reflected object, it can be applies to measure various physical qualities and visualise phenomena by obtaining the polarisation state before entering and after exiting the object. By combining this “polarisation information” with the conventional high-speed camera images, it is possible to study the load applied to a cutting tool at the same time as analysing the stresses inherent in the transparent material in the images, and understand the stress propagation and relaxation processes in impact test and flow phenomenon.This enables us to visualise events that cannot be seen by conventional means, qualitatively measuring the uniformity of the spatial performance of the alignment film in a non-contact manner.
