Miniature single channel Charge Amplifier.
MiniAmp Type 5030A, the new miniature single-channel
charge amplifier from Kistler, converts the charge signal
from all piezoelectric sensors into a proportional voltage
The rugged, dust and watertight 1P65 metal housing, together
with its compact design, make the unit suitable for industrial
One possible application for the MiniAmp is machinery and
process monitoring in the manufacturing industry. The small
size and light weight of the charge amplifier allows installation
where space is limited, even on moving parts.
For the input signal, two fixed measuring ranges (10:1) are
available which can be switched via digital inputs even under
load. The output signal of ±10 V can be processed and monitored
by any data acquisition equipment. Integrated digital inputs
(17L level) can be used easily in conjunction with industrial PLC
control systems, says the company.
Kistler Instruments is one of the worlds 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.
