Automotive

Vectoflow’s lightweight probes are ideal for motorsport applications, for example on the race car but also in the wind tunnel.

Probes

Conventional multi-hole probe

Multi-hole probes offer straightforward operation to enable concurrent detection of critical aerodynamic and thermodynamic variables:

  • angle of attack
  • speed
  • static and total pressure
  • static and total temperature
  • other relevant values
  • Rakes

    Rakes integrate multiple measuring heads into a single probe, making them ideal for simultaneous determination of flow parameters at multiple measuring points. These versatile tools can be equipped with various probe heads, including multi-hole, kiel probe for total pressure and total temperature measurement, static pressure sensors, and pressure tabs.

    FRAP Air

    High frequency measurement at low speeds. Precise detection and analysis of high-frequency flow phenomena at low speeds.

    FRAP Pro – Transient flow measurement systems

    FRAP Pro is Vectoflow’s transient flow probes that combine the robustness of pressure probes (e.g. 5-hole probes) with a high temporal resolution of the pressure signal. Depending on the probe geometry, frequencies in the kHz range can also be measured.

    iProbe

    Vectoflow’s iProbe is a compact and lightweight system for measuring speeds and angles of attack for mobile applications. Fluid dynamic measurements with a multi-hole probe have never been this quick and easy!

    Omniprobe

    The 14-hole Omniprobe from Vectoflow enables measurement of flow angles ranging up to ±160°. Similar to all other multi-hole probes by Vectoflow, the Omniprobe is capable of measuring the following flow parameters:

  • angle of attack
  • speed
  • static and total pressure
  • and other aerodynamic and thermodynamic quantities
  • Kiel probes

    Vectoflow's Kiel probes feature a uniquely optimised inlet geometry, ensuring precise measurement of total pressure and total temperature with an accuracy of 1000 ° C.. These probes are capable of accurately capturing flow angles of up to +/-60°.

    Radiator Probes

    Vectoflow radiator probes offer a simple way to equip your radiator with probes that measure total mass flow and mass flow distribution through the unit.

    Special multi-hole probes

    Our advanced additive manufacturing process enables the production of nearly all conceivable probe geometries. Simply provide us with your desired geometry or describe your measurement requirements, and we will devise a tailored solution to meet your needs.
    To illustrate Vectoflow’s capabilities, the lobbed nozzle in the picture, crafted from cobalt chrome, underwent meticulous surface treatment at the culmination of the manufacturing process.
    Featuring integrated pressure channels and ports for thermocouples, this nozzle design allows for comprehensive assessment of the exhaust gas flow encountered behind a thrust engine, offering rich data insights without the need for complex instrumentation.

    Systems

    EvoScann P-Series Pressure Scanner

    Vectoflow is the sales partner of the EvoScann P-Series pressure scanner from Evolution Measurement in Germany. The EvoScann P-Series pressure scanner is a highly miniaturized pressure scanner that can be used particularly well in the automotive industry. Its robust housing makes it ideal for in-car testing and its small size allows measurements in previously inaccessible areas.

    Traverse System

    Vectoflow offers complete solutions, which consist of flow probes, probe calibration, hardware for pressure and temperature measurement as well as measurement and control software (VectoVis Pro). The product portfolio is supplemented by all kinds of traverse systems, which are used in wind tunnels but also in gas turbines and many other areas and enable the user to precisely position the flow probes. The truss systems can be fully controlled with VectoVis Pro and therefore integrate perfectly into the overall system. Even loads of 1200 N and more are no problem for Vectoflow's traverse systems, with consistent positioning accuracy.

    Air Data Systems

    The VectoDAQ Air Data Computer together with flow measurement probes from Vectoflow forms a compact and lightweight system for measuring flow parameters in mobile applications.

    Software

    VectoVis Professional

    VectoVis Professional is a software that provides a comprehensive solution for real-time data acquisition, visualization, and evaluation of Vectoflow's most common sensors and flow probes. It allows users to control traverse systems, configure hardware environments, and customise flow probes. Users can visualize and store both raw and fully evaluated data, as well as define automatic test plans where traverses can be manipulated, data recorded, evaluated and saved. VectoVis Professional is structured with a framework and separate modules tailored for different probe types, ensuring versatility and adaptability to specific measurement needs.
