Pressure scanner platform-in-a-compact-package

Evolution Measurement, in Andover, UK, have launched a new pressure scanner platform which is a game-changer in achieving highly accurate, fast-response measurements in a compact package. The EvoScann P8 is unique in enabling users to make critical measurements in previously inaccessible areas.

Pressure Scanners are essential in aerodynamic testing of a wide range of items from wind turbine blades, to aircraft wings to Formula One cars. The challenge is in making the measurements as close as possible to the test article 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, a rugged scanner has been developed that can operate in such arduous conditions.

Weighing-in at less than 25g and fully encapsulated in carbon fibre, with a single communications and power lead, the EvoScann P8 is ideal for a wide range of applications, often being inserted directly inside an aerofoil section where it provides no disturbance to the airflow.

“F1 teams, and other aerodynamic research customers, are excited about the new EvoScann® product platform, as it allows them to measure in places that have previously been inaccessible or not cost-effective to measure in. The product is so compact that it finds uses not only in the wind tunnel it’s also rugged enough to be used on-car; one of the most challenging of environments”, says Paul Crowhurst, Managing Director of Evolution Measurement.

The EvoScann platform has been designed to allow quick and easy customisation of the product to suit a wide range of applications. This will allow users to have the product customised to suit their most challenging applications, taking such measurements into places never before possible.
