The Large Altitude (Hypobaric) Chamber
The large altitude chamber is 2.6 m diameter and 20 m long (8.5 x 65
uses include calibrating and testing equipment for high altitude use
(pictured) or testing engines and generators. The chamber includes
penetrations for electrical, fluid and data connections.
chamber can reach pressures as low as 200 Pascals (1.5 Torr), equivalent
to an altitude of 42 500 m (140 000 ft).
Most of our data logging is done on our Vishay data logging system.
We have a very comprehensive set of cards,
gauges, pressure sensors, thermocouples, accelerometers, test leads and
load cells ranging from a few grammes up to 10 tonnes.
Other ,more portable, lightweight systems are available to log data
remotely in hostile environments, particularly at high altitudes.
