PSV-500 Scanning Vibrometer

Full-field optical vibration measurement

Full-field optical vibration measurement

With the PSV Scanning Vibrometer, you reliably and precisely measure vibrations in research and product development. The deflection shapes and Eigen modes detected help you with everything from NVH, acoustic and structurally dynamic issues to ultrasonic analyses, FEM validation and non-destructive testing.

Scanning Vibrometers adopt to your measurement needs

Whatever question regarding vibration measurement drives you, there is a PSV Polytec Scanning Vibrometer to provide the answer – for frequencies from DC to 25 MHz, capturing vibrational velocities of 0.01 µm/s up to 30 m/s, studying samples from micro to macro.

Choose between solid rack type or flexible and portable notebook version. Whenever your requirements grow, benefit from upgrades and options. Add the optional Xtra technology to get high fidelity data even at large stand-off distances or on uncooperative surfaces or expand it to a full 3D vibration measurement system.
