Following four generations of stand-alone UVP instruments with included controlling PC, the original concept of UVP-DUO is to separate both measuring part and user interface, to avoid fast obsolescence of the latter. UVP-DUO can be considered as a measurement server, controlled remotely by a standard PC connected on the same computer network, via TCP/IP.
This gives more flexibility to the user, using existing network and computer facilities, placing UVP-DUO as close as possible to the measurement location, while controlling it either nearby, from a control room or from the one’s office.
Originally proposed as an option, we decided to integrate a 20 channels multiplexer into UVP-DUO to attach up to 20 transducers, to give the users more flexibility to address their experiment. Indeed it enables easy adaptation of one’s UVP setup over time, just by purchasing additional transducers when actually needed, avoiding costly hardware modification.
Multiple emitting frequencies
UVP-DUO can operate transducers in a wide emitting frequency range, from 0,5 MHz to 8 MHz, to cover a large field of applications. Low frequencies are used for large velocities and distances while high frequencies are utilized for their high spatial and velocity resolutions.
Then one single instrument can be used for various studies, and even exchanged between users of different labs, possibly just changing the type of transducer.
