On 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 50 kHz 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 -54°C to 165°C.

The Type 601A 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. Typical applications include pressure pulsation on pumps and compressors and dynamic measurements on pyrotechnic devices.

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

Kistler Instruments
