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.
D30 — which develops impact protection material for soft body armour for motorcycling, skiing and other sports, as well as industrial and military applications — has found that Kistler sensors are ideal for helping with product development testing and quality control.
Kistler Instruments has introduced the Type 8152C Piezotron acoustic emission sensor. The sensor is suitable for monitoring acoustic emissions above 50kHz.
Kistler Instruments will be demonstrating the benefits of its Como Injection system, including Multiflow automatic hot runner balancing systems, at a free one-day seminar being held on 2 April 2014 at the Polymer Training and Innovation Centre in Telford.
Kistler Instruments releases miniature triaxial accelerometers for use in harsh environments download
The Type 8766A miniature triaxial accelerometers from Kistler Instruments are designed to operate in temperatures ranging from -54°C to +165°C and so are suitable for use in harsh environments. Typical applications include automotive engine-bay and under-vehicle measurements, aerospace subsystem vibration testing and industrial quality control processes.
Kistler Instruments produces seven press force sensors that provide full coverage from 0.1–700kN. According to the company, the ability to switch the measuring range when using suitable amplifiers means that the needs of production and measuring stations that handle a large variety of parts can be met.
