CWT-107 Open Loop Wind Tunnel

The CWT-107 is a research quality wind tunnel designed for multiple PCB and component level testing. It is used in air flow characterization and flow visualization, thermal resistance measurements and generation of P-Q curves. The large test section (24″ x 2″ x 7″) is designed to accommodate multiple PCBs, as seen in a typical ATCA chassis. The wind tunnel can also be used to characterize different heat sink sizes for natural and forced convection cooling. Additionally, multiple heat sinks can be tested side by side to determine their thermal performance in the same environment.
