Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


The miniature triaxial accelerometer from Kistler Instruments
has been designed for use in aggressive environments such
as automotive engine bay and under vehicle applications,
aerospace subsystem vibration testing and industrial quality
control applications.

Weighing only 6.4 gram, the accelerometer has a measuring range of ±250g
with a sensitivity of 20mV/g over the frequency range of 1Hz to 9kHz with only
a 5% deviation, resolving a wide range of vibration measurements.

The Kistler PiezoStar® crystal, in a welded hermetic, ground isolated housing,
ensures reliable operation over a wide temperature range from -54 Deg C to
+165 Deg C.  The combination of the PiezoStar® crystal and integrated high-gain
microelectronics ensures very low variations in sensitivity over the whole operating
temperature range compared with quartz and ceramic element accelerometers.

Mounting is by a single, M5 centre hole allowing the miniature 4-pin ceramic
connector to be positioned throughout 360 Deg for convenient cable orientation.
The new accelerometer can be powered by any Kistler power supply coupler or
industry standard IEPE (Integrated Electronic Piezoelectric) compatible power

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.
