VECTOR-Series:
HeNe Digital Laser Vibrometers

Multi-purpose solution

The Vector is the standard vibrometer for a wide variety of vibration measurement problems. It is particularly suited for measurements on reflecting surfaces or through water as well as in applications where the smallest possible size of the measuring point is of critical importance.

The Vector Series uses a classic HeNe laser source with a wavelength of 633 nm and enables the measurement of vibration between 0 and 10 MHz. Through the use of different optical systems and decoders for velocity, displacement or acceleration, the Vector units can be customized for the measurement task at hand. The measuring signals are output in digital form via Ethernet and in analog form via BNC connectors with up to 160 Msamples/s.

Available decoders

A wide variety of high-performance real-time decoders are available for the evaluation of the interferometric measuring signals. The OptoMET UltraDSP technology enables the measurement of frequencies up to 10 MHz and vibrational velocities up to 10 m/s with the Vector Series, displacements can be resolved to less than 100 fm. All vibrometers incorporate a velocity decoder, and displacement and acceleration decoders are optionally available. Numerous measuring ranges per decoder ensure that measurements can always be performed with the optimum sensitivity.

Decoders can be easily retrofitted or upgraded. Start with a basic system and adapt the capabilities of the measuring instrument as required. This requires no return of the instrument to the factory and no waiting times for your production or research project. The table below provides an overview of the configuration options. We will also be happy to assist you in the selection of the best decoder for your measuring task.

Available lenses

Several lenses are available which are optimized for the Vector-Series. Choose the right optical system based on working distance, reflectivity of the surface to be measured or size of the focus point. The lenses are easily exchangeable due to a bayonet lock as on single-lens reflex cameras.
