PSV-500 Scanning Vibrometer

Non-contact, full-field vibration testing for modal analysis and FEM

Non-contact, full-field vibration testing for modal analysis and FEM

PSV-500 Scanning Vibrometer from Polytec measure vibrations without contact, reliably enabling precise vibration analysis in research and product development. The detected operational deflection shapes and Eigen modes help engineers with everything from model validation, NVH, acoustic analysis, structural dynamics issues to ultrasonic analysis, FEM validation and non-destructive testing.

Scanning Vibrometers for experimental modal testing and model validation grow with your needs

Whatever question regarding vibration measurement drives you, there is a PSV-500 Polytec Scanning Vibrometer to provide the answer. PSV-500 allow vibration measurement in a frequency range from DC to 25 MHz, capturing vibrational velocities of 0.01 µm/s up to 30 m/s. PSV-500 Scanning Vibrometers study measurement samples from micro to macro size.

Choose PSV-500 Scanning Vibrometers as a solid rack type for your research laboratories or as a flexible,  portable notebook version. Whenever your requirements grow, benefit from upgrades and options and adapt your PSV-500 respectively. Add the optional PSV Xtra technology to get high fidelity data even at large stand-off distances or from uncooperative surfaces or even expand your PSV-500 measurement system to a full 3D vibration analysis workstation.
