Pressure Measurement Systems
Pressure Transducers and Temperature Sensors for Industrial Applications
Temperature Scanners, Multichannel Measurement & Aeroprobe systems
Althen pressure measurement systems can measure multiple pressure points simultaneously. One such application is measuring pressure distributions across the surface of a vehicle’s body. This is done by taking a series of adjacent pressure measurements and transmitting the measurement signals to a data logger.
Benefit from our extensive range of electronic pressure measurement systems and pitot tubes for a wide variety of applications. Our partners Scanivalve and Aeroprobe are experts in pressure, temperature, and airflow measurement.

Airflow measurement of a personal electric aircraft
The personal electric aircraft of the Silverwing Team (TU Delft) features the multi-purpose airflow measurement device Aeroprobe. Flow parameters such as airspeed, angle of attack and side-slip angle ensure the aircraft can fly stably in the air while also doing so most efficiently.
The experts at Althen call on more than 40 years of experience to offer the perfect solution tailored to your requirements. This also includes custom pressure and temperature measurement systems as well as fully integrated solutions. Your advantage: We provide independent advice and do not limit you to one manufacturer. At your request, we tailor measurement systems to your specific needs. We are happy to answer any questions you might have.
