Kistler North America Introduces Piezoelectric Force Sensor for Joining Press and Test Equipment Monitoring
Amherst, New York, USA - Kistler (www.kistler.com), a worldwide supplier of precision sensors, systems and instrumentation for the dynamic measurement of pressure, force, torque and acceleration, has announced the North American market introduction of the Type 9393A, a compact piezoelectric force sensor offering precision measurement capabilities within joining press and test equipment monitoring applications.
With a wide dynamic range of 0 to 700 kN, the Kistler Type 9393A is designed to measure both dynamic and quasi-static forces. The sensor is offered in three calibrated measurement ranges of 0-100%, 0-10% and 0-1%. The compact design of the Kistler Type 9393A features a diameter of 145 mm and a height of 190 mm with flange connections on both ends, providing greater flexibility for easy mechanical adaptation within various machinery environments. The Type 9393A is also rotationally symmetrical in shape with a center hole, allowing for the mounting of connecting rods or for installation on a press plunger. Units are factory preloaded, shipped as a standard calibrated unit and are ready-to-mount for immediate use, with supplied centering rings for necessary axial adjustments. In addition, the Kistler Type 9393A is available with optional calibration by the Swiss Calibration Service (SCS).
As a piezoelectric sensor, the Kistler Type 9393A is capable of high-repeatability precision measurements over a substantial dynamic range, allowing the same press force sensor to be used within a variety of applications when paired with a suitable amplifier, such as the ICAM Type 5073A. When using the Kistler Type 9393A piezoelectric force sensor at a lower measurement range, an overload protection factor of up to 100 is provided, eliminating the need for other protective measures. In addition, the ability of the Kistler Type 9393A to switch measurement ranges with use of suitable amplifiers also supports a general industry trend toward production and measuring stations that can handle a greater variety of parts.
