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.
At the Assembly Show 2014 in Rosemont, Illinois, from 28–30 October 2014, Kistler will showcase a joining system comprising maXYmos NC, the IndraDrive servo amplifier and NC joining modules. The maXYmos NC monitors and controls the joining process.
The Type 8080 back-to-back vibration calibration standard accelerometer from Kistler uses a PiezoStar-based sensing element, which the company says is the first of its kind for a back-to-back sensor. It combines very good transient response with very low case/base strain sensitivity and a 50g range.
At Fakuma 2014 in Germany on 14–18 October 2014, Kistler will present the CoMo DataCenter 2.0 (CDC) for data management and analysis of injection-moulding processes. The CDC complements Kistler’s CoMo injection system, which allows cavity pressure-based quality monitoring and documentation of injection-moulding processes.
At the Assembly Show 2014, Kistler will showcase its extended maXYmos product range, presenting the maXYmos NC for electromechanical joining modules. Visitors will also experience precise joining and testing demonstrations with the maXYmos BL, which is specifically designed for hand presses.
At this year’s Fakuma event from 14–18 October 2014, Kistler will present sensors and systems for inspecting the quality of injection moulding processes. Visitors will also be able to see the newly developed CoMo DataCenter 2.0, which is claimed to offer diverse and sophisticated options for documenting and evaluating production data from the CoMo Injection System.
