Multi-channel cable technology suits moulds with many cavities

The use of pressure monitoring to control the injection moulding process combined with the increasing use of moulds with a large number of cavities is making the installation of the pressure sensors difficult and time consuming. Kistler's multi-channel cable technology has been designed to simplify the installation of cavity pressure sensors in multi-cavity moulds.

In the past, each sensor needed a separate cable to the charge amplifier making installation both time consuming and subject to the potential risk of incorrect connection. The multi-channel cable system builds on the widely used Kistler single wire technology to further simplify installation by replacing multiple connections to the charge amplifier or analysis equipment with one or more eight-pin plug-in connectors.

Cables from up to eight sensors are brought to a single connector mounted on the mould from which a multi-core cable carries signals to the charge amplifier. Using a multi-pin connector eliminates the risk of connection mistakes and saves time during set-up. A specially designed multi-channel, plug-in charge amplifier for use with all Kistler Unisens single wire sensors compliments the multi-channel cable technology.
