Kistler Instruments has enhanced the Maxymos BL to offer extended functionality in XY monitoring for joining and assembly processes and product testing applications.  

The Maxymos BL records and interrelates all of the measurands supplied by force or torque sensors on the Y channel and potentiometric displacement or rotation angle sensors on the X channel.

It uses evaluation objects such as box, line and envelope to analyse sections of the recorded measurement curves, allowing the Maxymos BL to monitor and evaluate the quality of a product or production step.

New software allows the direct transfer of the test record from the Maxymos BL to the PC and offers functions for visualising, measuring and analysing measurement curves and process values as well as for evaluating the process capability.

Key features and benefits

  • Fast data transmission is provided via serial Ethernet/IP and USB interfaces as well as ±10V input
  • Fast data transmission enables documentation of process data for traceability down to the individual part
  • Functional modern case is suitable for desktop, wall or panel mounting; it offers clear menus on a high-contrast touchscreen display enabling easy setup of many standard XY monitoring tasks
  • Large built-in memory allows nearly continuous monitoring of the curve, plus storage of 16 measurement programs for 16 different types of part, each with four evaluation objects
  • Latest Kistler Maxymos BL system can be used as the basis of a complete XY measuring chain costing less than £2,000, including sensors

Kistler Instruments

Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 23 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1,000, the Kistler Group is one of the world’s leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation.

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 analyzing physical processes, controlling and optimizing 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.
