VectoDAQ Air Data System
The VectoDAQ Air Data Computer combined with a Vectoflow multi-hole probe is a compact and light system for measuring flow parameters for mobile applications.
The VectoDAQ Air Data Computer simultaneously measures pressure and temperature signals for a multi-hole probe and evaluates the data in real time to obtain flow parameters such as angle of attack, airspeed and altitude.
The device has up to 14 differential pressure channels and an absolute pressure connection, which also serves as a reference for the differential pressure sensors. Each pressure channel can be customized according to customer requirements.
The data is transmitted via USB or CAN interface and the transmission rate can be set from 1 to 50 Hz.
In combination with a Vectoflow probe, this makes for a lightweight and compact measurement system for mobile applications, e.g. for measurements on air-based systems such as drones or for automotive as well as stationary applications.
The device can be connected to different pro types ranging from a simple pitot-static probe, over a 5-hole probe up to a 14-hole omniprobe.
