Comparison video: Halogen light vs. CAVILUX laser illumination
Visualization of a discharge of an electrical switch (16 A, B curve) at 2000 frames per second. Electrical switches are key safety components in many systems. High-speed imaging is used to study their operation. Choosing the right lighting matters. The left video shows the process illuminated with a halogen light. Motion blur and the arc are visible reducing the quantity and quality of information. With CAVILUX laser illumination the arc is suppressed and motion blur eliminated thus providing clear images.
