Cobra Probe

Cobra Probe

The Cobra probe’s design is ideal for testing environments where air flow will change regularly. The tip of the Cobra probe stays in line with the shaft so it does not change locations when it is rotated to receive measurements from a different angle.

The Cobra probe is often used in wind tunnel testing applications where the air flow conditions are changed intentionally and regularly. The Cobra’s design saves set up time by eliminating the need to remount the probe each time a new measurement is needed.
