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.
At NPE 2015, which runs until 27 March, Kistler is presenting the new CoMo DataCenter 2.0 (CDC) for data management and analysis of injection-moulding processes. The CDC complements Kistler’s CoMo injection system, which enables the cavity-pressure-based quality monitoring and documentation of injection-moulding processes.
The Type 8921B02 portable reference shaker from Kistler has selectable frequency and amplitude vibration combined with battery operation to allow the sensitivity of accelerometers to be verified and calibrated with precision in the field and the laboratory. The unit is rugged and is claimed to provide years of reliable operation in both factory and laboratory environments.
Kistler Instruments’ Type 4520A sensor for measuring torque on shafts rotating at up to 10,000rev/min uses frequency modulation to transmit the torque signal from the rotating shaft without contact and convert it into an analogue signal. The sensor is suitable for the static and dynamic measurement of torque in assembly, for quality control in production and for laboratory applications.
When the Rosetta space probe arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, it had been travelling for 10 years and had travelled four billion miles on just one tank of fuel. Throughout the long journey, Kistler pressure sensors monitored the fuel consumption to ensure that the probe arrived at its destination with enough fuel to make the final corrections to put the probe into orbit.
The new Type 9215A miniature force sensor from Kistler Instruments measures just 23.3mm in length and 6mm in diameter and weighs only 2.5g — making it suitable for both laboratory and industrial applications where space is at a premium.
