nanoDaq One Year On And New Models

Last year we launched the latest addition to our range of MicroDaq pressure scanners. Over the last 12 months, the nanoDaq-LT has proved highly popular and effective across a range of on-vehicle and wind tunnel applications. Its subsequently been joined by a number of further models.

The nanoDaq-LT is a lower-cost version of the MicroDaq for occasions where it’s class-leading accuracy is not as critical. The affordable nanoDaq-LT is a more compact and rugged version, suitable for a wide range of applications. The nanoDaq-LT has now been joined by even smaller versions, including the -LTS and motor sport specific models such as the -LTR and -LTM.

Chell has been supplying high-end pressure scanners to Formula One teams and the aerospace industry for over 30 years. Until now, the precision required by these applications has made the hardware prohibitive for other users. With the launch of the nanoDaq-LT, our team of engineers have created a more affordable scanner with many of the essential features. The nanoDaq-LT costs just one-third of our top-line MicroDaq, allowing more users to take advantage the latest technology in digital transducers.

The pocket sized nanoDaq-LT weighs just 37g and measures 59.5mm x 27mm x 12.5mm (excluding tubulations). The 16 channel nanoDaq-LTS is even more compact, measuring 59.4 x 27 x 9mm and weighting just 24g. The 32 channel nanoDaq-LTS is only slightly larger. Their small size and hard-wearing design mean the pressure scanner is perfect for use in harsh environments. Reconfiguration of the port outlets allows measurements to be made more conveniently in tight spaces. The nanoDaq-LTM also gives the option for port plate connections rather than tubulations.

At the 2017 launch, Jamie Shanahan, Applications Manager at Chell said “Pressure scanning applications are an area we’ve been heavily focused on, in particular the aerodynamic testing of Formula 1 cars. With the nanoDaq-LT we’ve developed a scanner that is not only affordable to many more customers but its size and construction mean it’s ideal for many new applications.”

Nick Broadley, MD at Chell commented “Our customers recognise us as the experts in this field. Many of our engineering solutions come from a direct enquiry from customers looking for a specific solution. We realised that there are many more who could also benefit from our class-leading pressure scanners if cost permitted. We’re proud to have developed an accessible product that can be used by a wide range of organisations to collect data and improve their own products.”
