Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


The Type 6052C high temperature pressure sensor from Kistler combines small, M5 size with rugged construction making it ideal for use on petrol or diesel multi-valve engines both in the test-cell and in-vehicle installation. The sensors may be specified with PiezoSmart automatic sensor identification to simplify installation, especially in multi-sensor applications.

Capable of operating at up to 400 deg C, the sensor is suitable for thermodynamic investigations up to the knock limit of the engine. The front seal design provides direct heat dissipation from the diaphragm to ensure optimal thermal conditions at the sensor element. In addition to the standard Type 6052C sensor, versions are available for use in heavy knock applications or at very high pressures and with additional damping for use where extremely high vibration levels are encountered, such as high performance, racing engines.
