PROMOTED CONTENT: Pressure Scanner Favoured by Aerodynamicists

22 January 2021

With 16 digital pressure channels, EvoScann P16-A is the perfect tool in any aerodynamicist’s toolbox.

Weighing-in at less than 18g and fully encased in carbon fibre, with a single communications and power lead, EvoScann P-Series is ideal for a wide range of applications, often being inserted directly inside an aerofoil section where it provides no disturbance to the flow field.

 

The original EvoScann P-Series has been a huge success since its release in 2017. Its unique, compact dimensions have enabled users to make critical measurements in previously inaccessible areas, addressing the challenges of aerodynamic testing of a wide range of items from wind turbine blades, to aircraft wings to Formula One cars. The challenge is in taking the measurements as close as possible to the test location and gathering data as quickly and accurately as possible. Often the scanners are mounted inside the model, but this poses a major challenge where space is limited.

In consultation with many customers in the motor-sport world, the need was identified for a scanner that could measure pressures accurately and quickly in very confined spaces that are also often subjected to high temperatures and much vibration. Evolution Measurement responded to the challenge and through careful design and extensive testing, the P16 rugged pressure scanner has been developed that can operate in such arduous conditions.

Paul Crowhurst, Managing Director of Evolution Measurement, said: “The P16-A demonstrates a real achievement in engineering as we have doubled the channel count whilst retaining our highly-miniaturised footprint. Coupled with the increase in resolution, this provides our customers with double the measurement coverage for greater measurement capacity with near-zero increase in occupied volume in the test article.”
