Piezoelectric High-temperature Pressure Sensor for Monitoring Cylinder Pressure



Kistler offers a new piezoelectric Type 6351A1  of high-temperature M5 size pressure sensor with in-line charge amplifier and a robust, steel-sheathed cable.


The minimal dimensions of this sensor make it ideal for compact engines offering extremely limited mounting room. In addition to conventional mounting in the cylinder block, the sensor can even be integrated into engine components such as gas injection valves. With the new PiezoStar® crystal the sensor, despite its miniaturization, is very sensitive and can be used for knock control as well as monitoring thermodynamic parameters.

The service life of the new Type 6351A1 is comparable with the tried and tested M10 monitoring sensor Type 6613C.


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 850, 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.
