Three new Kistler products at Sensors & Instrumentation ShowOn Stand C23 at the Sensors & Instrumentation Show 2015 Kistler Instruments will be showing three new products: acoustic emission sensors, high-sensitivity miniature pressure sensors and a signal amplifier for both piezoelectric and voltage output sensors.

The Kistler Acoustic Emission Sensor has an integral impedance converter for measuring acoustic emission (AE) above 50kHz in bearing-based machining structures, high-pressure vessels, compressors and valves. Its small size makes it easy to mount the AE sensor near to the source of emission to optimally capture the signal using just one bolt. Available in both intrinsically and non-intrinsically safe versions, the AE sensor is very rugged with a welded housing giving IP65 protection and wide operating temperature range from -54degC to 165degC.

Kistler’s new Type 601C miniature pressure sensor, available in both charge output and voltage output types, is especially suited to a wide variety of applications where very small pressure pulses need to be measured. The high sensitivity of the PiezoStar crystal developed by Kistler, much higher than that possible with quartz, allows small pressure fluctuations which are superimposed on static pressures to be measured with exceptional resolution. In addition to the high sensitivity and small size, the new charge output sensor has a very wide operating temperature range from -196 to + 350degC at pressures up to 250bar. Typical applications include pressure pulsation on pumps and compressors and dynamic measurements on pyrotechnic devices.

The new Kistler LabAmp Type 5165A, especially suited for use with the new Type 601C pressure sensor, is designed specifically to combine impressive flexibility with convenient usability for the measurement of dynamic signals from a wide range of piezoelectric, Piezotron (IEPE) and voltage output
