In November, Kistler Instruments will be holding two one-day seminars to provide an introduction to piezoelectric sensor technology for instrumentation engineers. The seminars will cover the theory of piezoelectric sensors and the practical application of piezoelectric measurement in both laboratory and industrial environments. The seminars will be relevant to all those responsible for designing and building instrumentation and measurement systems, especially where challenging environmental conditions may be encountered. A major quality of piezoelectric sensors is the ability to monitor highly dynamic impact events, often under harsh operating conditions.
Although piezoelectric sensor technology has many advantages over other types of sensor technologies, a clear understanding of piezoelectric measurement is essential for the full benefits to be obtained under real world conditions.
The subjects to be covered include:
- Design, principles and benefits of piezoelectric sensors
- A practical exercise on fitting and mounting of a force sensor
- Charge signal conditioning and system integration
- Calibration and measurement
The seminars will be held at the AMP Tech Centre, Sheffield on 5 November 2013 and Kents Hill Park, Milton Keynes on 7 November 2013. The delegate fee is £200 for a single delegate and £175 per delegate for two or more. The fee includes all course material, refreshments and lunch.
More information and on-line registration for these piezoelectric sensor technology seminars is available at www.kistler.com/forcemeasurement.
