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 has launched the Type 5847 maXYmos NC, which is designed to monitor, evaluate and document the XY characteristics of joining and press-fit processes using the force and displacement data from the servo press module.
Kistler Instruments will be holding a free production monitoring seminar/workshop in Bromsgrove on 16 June 2015.
Kistler’s new single-channel measuring amplifier for piezoresistive pressure sensors is suitable for a range of applications using high-accuracy measurements with digitally compensated sensors. The Type 4624AK amplifier is designed to interface with Kistler PiezoSmart sensor identification and is said to be ideal for use with digitally compensated sensors, allowing the characteristic values to be automatically read out from the electronic sensor data sheet (TEDS).
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.
