Peak practice.

The Kistler CoMo Logic is an inexpensive, single channel
instrument for monitoring time dependent 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 dependent
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
are 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.
