Hot-Wire Anemometry System
The AN-1005 is a portable compact Thermal Anemometry system (Hot-Wire Anemometer and Hot-Film anemometer), based on the AN-1003 Hot Wire Anemometry system channels. The Hot-Wire Anemometer channels Can work in CTA (Constant Temperature Anemometer) mode as well as CCA (Constant Current Anemometer) mode (with Option 11). The system has a built-in microprocessor with Parallel communication and data acquisition capabilities.
The mainframe use a bright LCD display to display 4 channels simultaneously, using a 5 digit Voltmeter.
friendly built-in menu guides the user through the operating procedure.
All analog signals may be measured on external BNC’s. However, a high
accuracy data acquisition system is built inside the mainframe, for high
- speed sampling at up to 500 Khz.@16 bit resolution (1 MHz. @ 16
bit optional). The data acquisition is done directly to any bi-directional
parallel port, eliminating the need for an expensive A/D card.
The AN-1005 is an ideal solution for most Fluid Dynamics measurements and Aeronautics Measurement applications. Based on a proven Thermal Anemometry Technique and Cold-Wire Anemometry, the system can measure the Flow (Air or Liquid Velocity and Turbulence) and Temperature Fluctuations in real-time, saving data to disk or displaying and analyzing data .
It's built-in optical isolation enables the user to get clean data, without any spikes, bursts or other interferences common to Anemometry system with a standard PC data acquisition cards. The problem of Ground Loops, which cause oscillations and calibration problems is also solved due to the special architecture and the built-in data acquisition system.
Smart triggering and clocking modes enable the user to do data reduction as well as synchronizing external events to the acquisition and analysis / display process. This feature is ideal for researchers and experimentalist doing fluid dynamics research with machinery, propellers, bursts, blow out wind tunnels, Valves, Actuators, Flaps, Stacks etc.
The AN-1005 Anemometry system is an advanced Hot-Wire and Hot-Film Anemometry system based on today's technology. The built-in software, as well as the digital hardware can be updated using Flash technology, and user may download new update files to the AN-1005, for enhancing it with new features.
