Calibration of LDA/PDA Probes
Dantec Dynamics now offers optional calibration of the fringe spacing for 60 mm FiberFlow and FlowLite probes with a calibration uncertainty of 0.067% (coverage factor 2).
Calibrated probes come with a label showing the calibrated fringe spacing, and a calibration certificate including the calibration data, a description of the calibration rig, an uncertainty analysis of the calibration procedure, and traceability references.
- Use of LDA system as calibration reference for other velocity sensors
- Traceable measurement accuracy
- Uncertainty analysis of LDA/PDA measurement results
It is important to calibrate your LDA/PDA probes
LDA is considered an absolute flow measurement method. Knowing the laser wavelength and the intersection angle between the laser beams, the calibration constant or fringe spacing can be easily calculated. It might thus seem unnecessary to calibrate an LDA system. However, in reality, tolerances on the lasers, optical fibres, lenses and alignment introduce small deviations from the nominal fringe spacing. This leads to systematic errors on the measured velocities, which can be corrected for by calibration of the fringe spacing.Kembali
