Paper Abstract

The engine video system with the infrared fiber optical image guide is an optical equipment for the investigation of all kinds of periodic events in production engines, such as injection or combustion process in reciprocating engines etc. It is a reliable and easy-to-handle tool for research and development work avoiding significant alterations to the engine. This is possible by obtaining optical access to most parts of the engine via an infrared fiber optical image guide. On-line observation of various phenomena is realized by connecting a miniature infrared video CCD camera to the infrared fiber optical image guide. System features are suitable for diesel and gasoline engine, on-line observation and recording, system resolution better than 10 pl/mm. This system can be used to observe non-luminous phenomena such as fuel injection or cyclic movement of mechanical parts by the use of a high power xenon lamp that has the power 350 W guided by an infrared optical fiber bundle to the observed target.
