The two force-measuring 1-day seminars being organised by Kistler Instruments are proving very popular, maybe because a 25 per cent discount on the £200 delegate fee is on offer up to the end of August. The dates are the 7th October at Corsham, Wiltshire and the 9th October at Gaydon, Warwickshire.
These seminars, which provide an introduction to piezoelectric sensor technology for instrumentation engineers, will cover the theory and practice of piezoelectric of piezoelectric measurement in both laboratory and industrial environments. They are relevant to anyone designing and building instrumentation and measurement systems, especially where long-term reliable operation is a priority. A major quality of piezoelectric sensors is the ability to monitor highly dynamic impact or combustion events, often under harsh operating conditions.
Although piezoelectric sensor technology has many advantages over other types of sensor technologies, a clear understanding of the measurement technology 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 force sensors
- Charge signal conditioning and system integration
- Calibration and measurement
The 25 per cent early booking discount will apply to the £200 single delegate fee and the reduced multi-delegate rate for all bookings made and paid for before the 31 August 2014. The delegate fee includes all course material, refreshments and lunch.
