ROADYN SYSTEM NOW AVAILABLE FOR TWIN TYRES.
The new RoaDyn system from Kistler www.kistler.com is
widely used for real time, vehicle suspension data acquisition
both on the test track and on public roads but, until now, has
been suitable only for single tyre wheels.
The new version, the RoaDyn S650, has been developed specifically
to provide the same level of sophistication for twin tyre wheels on vans
and light trucks up to 5 tonnes laden weight.
The modular design allows the six-component measuring wheel to be
easily adapted to suit a wide range of configurations. Standard size
wheels from 16 to 18 inches with stud hole pitch diameter up to 205 mm.
Non-contact, wireless telemetry, using a built-in angle encoder and strain
gauge load cells, transmits measured data to data acquisition equipment
on the vehicle under test.
The RoaDyn S650 is splash-water resistant and was subjected to FEM
analysis to optimise weight and rigidity to ensure a long life under
practical test conditions.
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.
