Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


A new signal conditioner from Kistler ( with USB connectivity simplifies transfer of data from mould sensors to a PC or laptop running the popular Kistler DataFlow injection moulding process analysis software. The new unit provides up to 16 pressure or temperature channels using four signal conditioner units each providing four signal channels.

Any combination of charge, voltage and thermocouple amplifiers can be fitted into the new signal conditioner. Two new, 4-channel modules; a charge amplifier for cavity pressure sensors and a thermocouple amplifier for cavity temperature monitoring support Kistler's multi-channel cabling. This system groups the outputs from up to eight sensors into a single cable to simplify set-up and eliminate cable connection errors.

The use of Kistler single-wire connection technology makes the installation of pressure and thermocouple sensors exceptionally simple, especially where space is at a premium, and allows cables to be cut to length, repaired or replaced on-site.
