NEW WATER COOLED SWITCHING ADAPTER OFFERS
PRECISION AT HIGH OPERATING TEMPERATURES.
The new Type 7533A water-cooled switching adapter for
use with a wide range of Kistler pressure sensors provides
a combination of long sensor life and measurement precision
when used in exhaust systems of internal combustion engines.
When activated, the adapter exposes the sensor to the hot gases
only for as long as pressure measurements are required. This
increases the life of the sensor, especially when used in internal
combustion engines with high exhaust temperatures and wide
pressure fluctuations. When deactivated, the sensor is isolated
from the hot gases and is exposed only to ambient temperature
The switching adapter, in common with Kistler's range of water-cooled
pressure sensors, is designed to be water cooled to 50ºC and the
new Type 2621E closed circuit water-conditioning unit can provide
temperature control for up to ten sensors and adapters. Heating and
cooling systems maintain the water temperature at 50ºC with automatic
system pressure regulation. The specially designed pump circulates
the water without pulsation to ensure stable, precise and reliable
sensor performance over long time periods. The electronic flow
monitoring/alarm signalling system is standard and the unit is powered
by normal mains supply between 115 and 230 VAC.
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.
