Multipoint instrumentation streamlines planar airflow analysis.

Part 1 of Airflow Tools Series – Multipoint Sensing Arrays & Instrumentation

Measurement of air velocity, temperature, and humidity are crucial steps in product design and development. When testing conditions require numerous, simultaneous measurement locations, product design teams turn to multipoint instrumentation from Degree Controls. Multipoint sensing systems streamline data logging and analytics, yielding accurate results with test setups that can be easily repeated.

Degree Controls offers one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) sensor array systems which enable rapid, complex measurements of air velocity, temperature, and humidity with unprecedented ease:

The °C SPAR sensor pole array system is fully configurable to meet user defined specifications including pole length, sensor quantity, sensor spacing, and calibration range. °C SPARs have convenient USB sensor outputs and are designed for use with our °C Port family of data acquisition instruments and AccuTrac™ data logging software (purchased separately). Multiple °C SPARs may be arranged together to create an adjustable two-dimensional sensing array.  

The °C Grid system is a customized X‐Y array, multi‐point airflow sensing solution that allows users to measure air velocity, temperature, and humidity across a planar area. Designed for versatility in any application where airflow and temperature must be mapped across the area of flow, °C Grid measures, records, and maps up to 200 points in real time. °C Grid systems are built to client specifications and supplied with sensor array, interface box, cabling, and °C Grid data logging software.

Part 2 of our Airflow Tools Series – MULTIPOINT MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS FOR CONSTANT AND CHANGING TEST LAYOUTS explains which Degree Controls airflow sensing array system to use for test layouts that stay the same vs those that change.
