This paper deals with setting of the acquisition equipment used to visualize and measure the concentration of intermediate species chemiluminescence combustion and laser-induced fluorescence. Observed intermediates such as OH, NO, CH and others have an emitted UV spectrum and their signal is very weak. For this reason, it is necessary to use a suitable image intensifier, and its proper setting and synchronization with the camera is also very important. In view of this problem, the following text deals with the appropriate setting of selected optical amplifiers with P46 and P43. Because the recording equipment can be used for both LIF and chemiluminescence, the experimentally determined setting will be performed using the OH-chemiluminescence method. This is reported by a weaker signal and creates a more stringent setup criterion. As a qualitative factor, a gradient of the image function has been selected, which plays a significant role in edge detection and therefore also in flame front position detection.
