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’ 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.
Kistler’s LabAmp Type 5165A amplifier is designed specifically for the measurement of dynamic signals. The amplifer has been designed for use in research, development and laboratory applications where dynamic signals need to be measured precisely and with high signal quality. Typical applications include acceleration and vibration measurements, pulsating pressure applications and force measurements of fast machining processes.
Kistler Instruments and Toolex have joined forces to apply the latest process control technology to a range of German-made hand presses. The new system uses the Kistler maXYmos monitoring and control concept, as used in the company’s NC Servo Press electromechanical systems, to provide ‘zero defect’ production in high-volume environments.
