Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


To meet the demand for its CoMo Injection process monitoring for use on multi-cavity moulds, Kistler ( has added 12 and 24 channel versions to the current 8 channel version. In addition, the user interface has been completely redesigned to improve access to all the functions on the new 12 inch touch screen colour monitor in French and Japanese, in addition to English and German. The latest version of the CoMo-MIS (Management Information System) database system for storing process data is also be available in the additional languages.

The new models have enhanced functionality for real-time processing and quality monitoring combined with multi-channel cabling. All existing CoMo Injection and CoMo-MIS systems can be economically upgraded to the new specification on site.
The 12 channel system has eight channels for pressure and four for voltage signals. For pressure sensors a choice is offered between multi-channel connectors with four channels or eight channels. The 24 channel system has 16 channels for pressure and eight voltage inputs and is equipped with two 8-channel connectors for pressure sensors.

In both models, the voltage inputs can be used with multi-channel thermocouple amplifier, Type 2205A, for combined pressure and temperature sensors or for machine signals.

The new versions of the widely used CoMo Injection system are the latest development in the Kistler zero-defect injection moulding process control system.
