Kistler Extend Multi-Channel Cabling to Mould Temperature Signals.

Successfully used to allow a single cable to connect multiple injection moulding cavity pressure sensors to the Kistler ( Como Injection process monitoring system, Kistler multi-channel cabling has now been extended to cavity temperature signals. The technology is based on a miniature thermocouple amplifier with either 2 or 4 channels.

The small size of the amplifier allows direct mounting in the mould for maximum cable and electronics protection. When required, the amplifier can be mounted on the mould or the machine using a specially designed case.

As with the pressure system, only one cable is required to connect up to four temperature signals from each amplifier to the CoMo Injection process monitoring system.

The new connection system provides the ideal method of connecting the Kistler combined pressure and temperature sensors to the CoMo Injection system.
