Usage Example

Aero Optim-B使用例_1 This wind tunnel has the measuring table changed to the Bicycle measuring table ($4,400 extra). We can also supply mannequins made for wind tunnel tests. Aero Optim-B使用例_2 Our Bicycle measuring table is tough enough to endure the furious full power pedaling of a professional athlete, at the same time accurate and sensitive enough to measure the slite difference of clothing, equipment and so on. Aero Optim-B使用例_3 The arm holding the bicycle can be easily retracted in the table. Aero Optim-B使用例_4 When the wind tunnel is not in use, the measuring table can be folded towards the fan unit. The folding mechanism is motor-driven and needs only one person to operate. Aero Optim-B使用例_5 This is how the wind tunnel looks when the measuring table is folded. It is about the size of a phone box. Aero Optim-B使用例_6 Side view of the wind tunnel when folded. Aero Optim-B使用例_7 Aero Optim-S comes with software to visualize and log the data. There are multiple functions that enable you to generate graphs and compare data at the spot. Also, the software provides 3 types of filters for cutting out noise. Aero Optim-B使用例_8 The controller has a magnet on the backside, therefore easily movable to wherever it is convenient for the measurer or rider. Aero Optim-B使用例_9 The wind tunnel is compact as well as battery-powered, making it easy to install in small offices and locations without large capacity power. Aero Optim-B使用例_10 This is a photo from the down wind side of the wind tunnel. You can see six fans behind the honeycomb and the steel mesh. The wind tunnel has six 600mm fans with 5kW BLDC motors. Aero Optim-B使用例_11 The wind tunnel comes with fan guards that are fine enough to keep fingers and debris away from the fan blades. Aero Optim-B使用例_12 Each measuring table is hand-built on a large surface plate, alining all parts in high precision standards. Aero Optim-B使用例_13 The pitch of the arm on the bicycle measuring table can be changed to suit multiple wheelbases. Aero Optim-B使用例_14 Aero Optim-B使用例_15 By selecting the autorotation motor option($1600 extra) on the bicycle measuring table, the wheels can be rotated. Using this function, you can test the performance of bicycle wheels and tires.
