Laser-Screen Projectile Velocimeter

Overview

Laser-Screen Projectile Velocimeter (LSPV) is a non-contact, stand-alone velocity measuring instrument based on time of flight principle. In LSPV, two parallel optical sheets, separated by fixed known distance, are used. It can be used as a tabletop standalone single instrument or with two parts having sensor unit near the projectile path and display unit at control room connected through fiber optic link. It is useful in Defense labs, for the study of material properties like deformation with known impact, to find out coefficient of restitution of a material and for college experiments on gravity.

Quick View Leaflet

Laser-Screen Projectile Velocimeter (LSPV), is a non-contact, stand-alone velocity measuring instrument based on time of flight principle.

In LSPV, two parallel optical sheets are generated using diode lasers, which are separated, by fixed known distance and kept perpendicular to the direction of projectile motion. When a horizontal moving projectile crosses the light sheet, generates shadow on detector, corresponding electrical pulses are used to derive velocity of the projectile. It can be used as a tabletop standalone single instrument or with two parts having sensor unit near the projectile path and display unit at control room connected through fiber optic link.

 SALIENT FEATURES

  • Measuring Range : 0.1-5000 m/sec.

  • Accuracy : Better than ±2 % of measured value.

  • Measurement Time (max.) : 10 msec.

  • Projectile Size : 1 mm and above.

  • Stand-alone instrument : Microcontroller based circuit.

  • EMI immunity : Optical connectivity between units.

APPLICATIONS

  • In Defense labs

  • For study of material properties like deformation with known impact.

  • To find Coefficient of restitution of a material.

  • For college experiments on gravity.
