Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


Kistler RoaDyn System 2000 measuring wheels are widely
used to collect real time suspension performance data but
the in-board telemetry system makes them unsuitable for use
on vehicles with small wheels or large drum brakes.  Small
wheels, in particular, have very limited space between the
hub and the wheel for mounting the telemetry equipment. 
To provide a solution, Kistler has developed a version of
the RoaDyn System 2000 specifically for 12, 13 and 14
inch wheels.

A two part-mounting package consists of an offset adapter, to suit the
original wheel studs, to which the measuring wheel is fitted and easily
interchangeable measuring wheel rims for 12, 13 or 14 inch wheels.

Data telemetry pick-up is by a new outboard, non-contact transmission
unit weighing less than 500 grams, allowing the new system to be fitted
to the vehicle simply and quickly, usually by suction pads to the vehicle
body.  As with the in-board telemetry system, the new outboard system
allows up to 24 data channels with a transmission rate of 2kHz and is
compatible with all versions of the Kistler RoaDyn range without the
need to adjust any existing components.

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.
