Multichannel Charge Amplifier delivers enhanced precision and flexibility

Kistler has launched a new, modular high-end multichannel charge amplifier to provide the precise signal amplification demanded by laboratory applications for extremely accurate measurement of physical quantities. The innovative Type 5080A amplifier is ideal for processing signals from a wide variety of piezoelectric sensors.

The new charge amplifier offers a wide frequency range from 0 to more than 200 kHz, a broad measuring range (±2 to 2,2 million pC), low drift, low noise level, enhanced low-pass filtering and an integral summing processor as standard. AC and DC versions are available with both USB and RS-232C interfaces.

The 19" rack mounting, modular design can accommodate up to eight amplifier modules which may be any combination of charge modules for piezoelectric sensors and dual-mode modules with charge/PiezoTron® input for use with force, pressure, torque or acceleration sensors.

Kistler Group
Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 25 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1050, the Kistler Group is one of the world's leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation with a turnover of 210 million Swiss Francs (GBP 145M) in the 2010 financial year.
Kistler's core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force and acceleration. Kistler's know-how and electronic systems can be used to prepare measuring signals for use in analysing physical processes, controlling and optimising industrial processes, improving product quality in manufacturing and improving performance in sports and rehabilitation.
Kistler offers a comprehensive range of sensors and systems for engine development, automotive engineering, plastics and metal processing, installation technology and biomechanics.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff worldwide are engaged in research and development, has generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric, piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems. These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor, two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for use up to 400 Deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
