Aerodynamic sensor specialist Evolution Measurement has released its latest miniaturized differential pressure scanner, the EvoScann P8-D. The company states that engineering developments and continuous improvements allow the P8-D to deliver full-scale accuracy that is five times better than its predecessor’s. Full-scale accuracy was 0.5% and is now 0.1% in the key 100mbar and 200mbar ranges.
Used in aerodynamic testing environments, the P8-D is an eight-channel, digital pressure scanner providing direct true differential measurement in engineering units. Company MD Paul Crowhurst said, “We are thrilled with the results we are achieving. Customers were happy with the original P8-D pressure scanner but we felt we could do better. Our culture of continuous improvement led to these exciting developments and now our customers can have even more confidence in the measurements achieved.”
The company notes that the pressure scanner is small enough to fit in tight spaces, enabling engineers to gain valuable data from previously unreachable areas, broadening the scope of aerodynamic research undertakings.
