Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


Single wire technology can now be specified on all Kistler
sensors for monitoring cavity pressure in both multi-cavity
moulds and large, single component moulds.

The main benefit of the unique Kistler single wire technology is
the simplification of installation as the single wire sensor, being
installed without a connector, requires only a bored hole to
accommodate the cable.  As several cables can be threaded
down a single bore, the single wire sensor is ideal for multi-cavity
applications.  The pre-fixed connector, on a conventional screened
sensor cable, can make installation both difficult and costly as a
milled channel is often needed for each sensor.  

Unlike conventional screened cables, which must be replaced or
repaired by the manufacturer, the single wire connecting cable
can be cut to the required length after installation and easily
extended and repaired by the user without special tools.

The cable can be terminated with a quick fitting connector or
multi-channel charge amplifier mounted on the mould and is
compatible with all existing Kistler charge amplifiers integrated
into injection moulding machines.  From the connector or charge
amplifier, the sensor signal is carried by screened cable to the
monitoring equipment, such as the Kistler DataFlow system.
Kistler single wire technology simplifies the installation and
maintenance of cavity pressure sensors in all types of injection
moulding machines and will deliver significant cost savings,
especially in multi-cavity applications.

Kistler Instruments is one of the world’s leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque.  Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
