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 introduced a range of pressure sensors certified for use in ATEX Zone 0, intrinsically safe and Zone 2 non-incendive hazardous areas. Typical applications include R&D, industrial, automotive and aerospace component and system testing. Various electrical and pressure connections are available.
At SPS IPC Drives on 25–27 November 2014, Kistler Instruments will showcase its KiTorq 4551A and sensor 4503B for measuring highly dynamic torques at test stands. Both systems deliver reliable measurement results with an accuracy of 0.05 per cent per cent.
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is working on a dynamic pressure sensor calibration method based on shock tube techniques that NPL hopes will be adopted as an ISO standard. The Type 603B miniature piezoelectric pressure sensor and the Type 5015 single-channel laboratory charge amplifier from Kistler Instruments were used to validate shock tube performance.
Kistler Instruments has added a new accelerometer to its PiezoStar range. The new model offers 1,000g triaxial capability with integrated signal conditioning and has wide and flat frequency response, making it particularly suitable for use in the modal and durability testing of automotive, aviation and aerospace structures at high temperatures.
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.
