High Temperature Pressure Sensor with Very High Sensitivity


With the new piezoelectric pressure sensor Type 6045A, Kistler offers an M8 high-temperature pressure sensor with very high sensitivity and excellent thermodynamic charac-teristics. Featuring a shoulder seal the Type 6045A can be installed in a M8x0,75 bore and is interchangeable with the cooled sensor Type 6041A.


Using the new PiezoStar® crystal a high sensitivity of – 45 pC/bar is possible and further design features ensure low thermal shock and reduced sensitivity shift.


The Type 6045A is an excellent all-rounder and can be used for both thermodynamic investigation and knock measurement. As an uncooled design it is ideally suited for onboard use in over-the-road engine tuning.


Kistler’s core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force, torque 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.


A worldwide sales presence in the form of 23 group companies and 30 distributors ensures customer proximity, application support on an individual level and short lead times. With a staff of 820, the Kistler Group is one of the world’s leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation. The Kistler Group achieved turnover of 195 million Swiss Francs in the 2007 financial year.
