Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


The Kistler ( CoMo Logic is an
inexpensive, single channel instrument for monitoring
time dependant parameters in both manual and
automatic manufacturing, assembly and test processes.

With a sampling rate of up to 1000 cycles per minute and three
real time thresholds for overload protection or machine speed
control, CoMo Logic is capable of detecting peak values within
the current cycle.  Automatic post cycle analysis compares peak
value to a pre-set value to identify when the peak is within the
pre-set range signifying a "good" part or has failed to reach a
defined minimum indicating a process malfunction.  A digital
output can be used to reject faulty parts and provide cycle
control when applied to a PLC, a switching contact or signal
for manual action.

Operation is by a simple, password protected menu system with
up to eight parameter sets and four operating modes making
CoMo Logic very versatile and flexible.  In GRAPHIC mode, the
time dependant parameter is displayed with real time thresholds
with zoom, scroll and cursor functions, TREND mode displays the
trend of the last 118 cycle peaks graphically and PEAK mode
displays the numerical value of the cycle peak as a drag indicator.

The fourth mode, INSTANT, allows the sensitivity to be set during
measurement with automatic updating of the actual value.  Typically,
this allows the value required to be displayed for a known force to
be set very easily during set up.

Available as stand alone desktop and 19-inch rack and panel
mounting versions, the new CoMo Logic has charge measuring
ranges from 5,000 to 500,000 pC.  Configuration is via PC
software and firmware updates supplied as standard.

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.
