Timing Units / Synchronizer v2

Timing is everything; especially in the fast world of PIV. When your flow is supersonic and your laser pulse just 5 nanoseconds wide, you want to be sure that everything is in-sync…

The Synchronizer coordinates timing in between your PIV hardware. Foremost timing in between camera and laser system. This is to ensure, you have correct sequences and delays (in the necessary order of nanoseconds) to measure properly. The sequence is programmed through a convenient, PIV-adapted GUI using an ethernet connection.


Since years, the Synchronizer has been our working horse: While on the outside, it more or less stays the same, we are constantly optimizing the interior design. This relates to both, hard- and software, due to your feedback or the latest development in electronics.


The SigmaX software allows you to configure every of the 16 output channels independently or you can use one of the wizards to easily set-up your PIV sequence.
It also allows you to synchronize the outputs with any combination of the 6 inputs. Usinfg the logic analyzer option you can also visualise and analyse the incoming signals.
