Airflow Instrumentation Has Slidable Sensors

April 12, 2024 | Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Degree Controls has announced the all-new °C Rail, a multipoint airflow instrumentation system with slidable sensors. Addressing the need to satisfy different test setups, the °C Rail’s linear track system allows users to move spring-loaded sensors back and forth along a rail extrusion to change measurement locations. To increase data points, sensors can be added at any time. The °C Rail offers researchers, engineers, and technicians an easy and reliable way to rapidly respond to dynamic testing requirements.

Collecting precision, temperature-compensated air velocity and air temperature data for multiple sensors in real time, the °C Rail provides users with a detailed understanding of the airflow distribution. The multipoint airflow instrumentation system is flexible and covers a range of measurement areas. Rail extrusions are available in 1m and 2m sections, and selections for sensor probe lengths extend from 75mm to 178mm. To set different measurement points, sensors can be moved back and forth along the rail, and more sensors may be installed to expand the number of sampling locations. With the °C Rail’s built-in communication hub to transfer digital sensor data directly to your PC via USB, there is no need for separate data acquisition hardware. And, with no sensor cables to manage, it’s easier to setup and maintain test equipment.

The °C Rail is a next-level, multipoint anemometer offering which provides users an adjust-on-the-fly approach to handle changing test conditions and optimize airflow experiments. It is designed to work cohesively with Windows®-based AccuTrac datalogging software for real time viewing and analysis of airflow data. A complete °C Rail system consists of a module (rail with hub), sensors, and AccuTrac datalogging software.
