Cable technology suits moulds with many cavities

Multi-channel cable technology
Kistler's multi-channel cable technology has been designed to simplify the installation of cavity pressure sensors in multi-cavity moulds.
In the past, each sensor needed a separate cable to the charge amplifier making installation both time consuming and subject to the potential risk of incorrect connection.
The multi-channel cable system builds on the Kistler single-wire technology to further simplify installation by replacing multiple connections to the charge amplifier or analysis equipment with one or more eight-pin plug-in connectors.
Cables from up to eight sensors are brought to a single connector mounted on the mould from which a multi-core cable carries signals to the charge amplifier.
Using a multi-pin connector eliminates the risk of connection mistakes and saves time during set-up.
A specially designed multi-channel, plug-in charge amplifier for use with all Kistler Unisens single-wire sensors complements the multi-channel cable technology.
Kistler Instruments has launched new versions of its NCFB electromechanical joining modules. The smaller version has measuring ranges of 5kN and 15kN with 200mm stroke at a speed of 250mm/sec and the larger version has ranges of 25kN and 50kN with a 400mm stroke length at 150mm/sec. Both types have stroke length repeatability in real-world conditions of 0.01mm.
A torque sensor from Kistler Instruments has been chosen for ‘Ultra Boost’: a three-year project partially funded by the Technology Strategy Board that is aiming to develop a supercharged petrol engine with the same power output and only 35 per cent of the exhaust emissions as a current 5L V8 engine, but only half the size.
At the Automotive Engineering show on 12–13 November 2013, Kistler Instruments will highlight a range of sensors and systems for automotive development and production.
Kistler Instruments has upgraded the firmware for its Como Injection process monitoring system to v2.4, which the company says offers better functionality and new features that will help processors achieve zero-defect production even faster.
At this year’s Motek show in Stuttgart, from 7–10 October, Kistler will be presenting a range of its products that it says guarantee production quality and increase the efficiency of production plants by reducing rejects and their associated costs.
