Kistler's Type 8315 K-Beam capacitive MEMS accelerometer suits R&D and OEM processes
Kistler Instrumentscontact supplier
Type 8315 single-axis accelerometer
Kistler Instruments has introduced the Type 8315 single-axis accelerometer, which is particularly suitable for low-frequency applications, including automobile ride quality, wind-tunnel investigations and aerospace testing where structural vibration and dynamics are used to assess performance, reliability and integrity parameters.
Other research and development (R&D) applications for the Type 8315 include human motion studies, robotics and platform motion control systems.
A temperature output is provided for use where external temperature compensation of the output signal is required.

Key features and specifications
- Six measuring ranges from ±2g to ± 200g are available with a frequency response of 0–1kHz (0–250Hz for 2g).
- The accelerometer is enclosed in a choice of hard anodised aluminium or welded titanium housings.
- The Type 8315 has a supply voltage range of 5–50VDC and a 6,000gpk shock rating.
- The accelerometer incorporates integrated signal conditioning.
- A choice of adhesive, threaded stud and magnetic mounting bases and connection options facilitate installation.
On Stand C23 at the Sensors & Instrumentation Show 2015 Kistler Instruments will be showing three new products: acoustic emission sensors, high sensitivity miniature pressure sensors and a signal amplifier for both piezoelectric and voltage output sensors.
The new Type 9171A rotating, cutting force dynamometer (RCD) from Kistler Instruments is designed to accurately measure the high forces acting on a rotating tool during high-performance cutting (HPC) operations.
Kistler has launched the Type 5847 maXYmos NC, which is designed to monitor, evaluate and document the XY characteristics of joining and press-fit processes using the force and displacement data from the servo press module.
Kistler Instruments will be holding a free production monitoring seminar/workshop in Bromsgrove on 16 June 2015.
Kistler’s new single-channel measuring amplifier for piezoresistive pressure sensors is suitable for a range of applications using high-accuracy measurements with digitally compensated sensors. The Type 4624AK amplifier is designed to interface with Kistler PiezoSmart sensor identification and is said to be ideal for use with digitally compensated sensors, allowing the characteristic values to be automatically read out from the electronic sensor data sheet (TEDS).
