NEW CYLINDER PRESSURE SENSOR FOR
MARINE DIESEL ENGINES.
Kistler has introduced a new version of its successful
Type 6613C cylinder pressure sensor specifically for
slow running, marine propulsion engines.
The Type 6613CB21 sensor/charge amplifyer combination has a very
low cut-off frequency making it ideal for high precision cylinder pressure
monitoring at operating speeds from 30 rpm. The 2-wire current output
charge amplifier, allowing the output signal to be transmitted over long
distances, and 200 bar measuring range making the Type 6613CB21
suitable for most marine applications.
An integral cable interconnects the quartz piezoelectric pressure sensor
and the charge amplifier incorporated in the plug. As a result of its
patented design, the measuring element is insensitive to integral
mounting stresses and largely tolerant of dirt and contamination. The
sensor has been designed so that an exceptionally long service life
can be achieved, even with the corrosion and contamination inherent
in heavy-oil engine applications.
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.
