Engine Monitoring Sensors have minimum life of 16,000 hr.

Press Release Summary:

Suited for monitoring cylinder pressure in stationary gas engines, sensor type 6613CA incorporates knock- and corrosion-resistant diaphragm as well as piezoelectric quartz measuring element that minimizes thermal shock and instability. Anti-strain internal design negates sensitivities to mounting stress and particulate contamination. Inline charge amplifier has 2 measuring ranges, to 100 and 250 bar, as well as selectable time constants.

Large Engine Monitoring Sensors Have Long Life

Reliable monitoring of cylinder pressure is not a challenge on large stationary gas engines with monitor sensor type 6613CA from Kistler Instrument. A life expectancy of at least 16,000 hours is designed in due to rugged construction features such as a knock resistant and corrosive resistant diaphragm. An anti strain internal design negates sensitivities to mounting stress and most particulate contamination. In pipeline pressurization service, a three year life is typical.

Employing a piezoelectric quartz measuring element, thermal shock and instability are nearly eliminated. The inherent stiffness of quartz extends the upper frequency response of the sensor to capture all relevant data. An inline charge amplifier has two measuring ranges and selectable time constants that permit normal operating data stability, despite varying loads and speeds, as well as a calibration mode. Measuring ranges are to 100 bar and 250 bar. The output Voltage of 0 to 5 is easily read by ordinary data acquisition equipment.

Kistler is a worldwide supplier of precision instrumentation for the measurement of pressure, force and acceleration serving the R&D, Industrial and OEM Communities.
