Beyond the Limits: High-Tech Sensors for Heavy-Duty Applications



Kistler sensors and systems deliver an impressive performance where products from other suppliers come to their limits. With its motto "Kistler Goes Beyond the Limits" the manufacturer with a long tradition emphasizes the unique selling point of its pressure, force, torque and acceleration sensors.


High sensitivities, extreme measuring ranges, outstanding operation temperatures and a particularly flexible application are the unique selling points of Kistler sensors in industrial and laboratory applications. These salient attributes are at the forefront of Kistler's presentation at booth no. 327, hall 11 of the SENSOR+TEST 2012 trade fair, which will take place from 22 May through 24 May in Nuremberg/Germany.


Kistler sensors and measuring elements often outperform conventional sensors in various categories: Kistler pressure sensors, for instance, operate with extreme operating temperatures, outstanding natural frequencies and particularly high sensitivities, while Kistler force sensors cover impressively wide measuring ranges – from miniature force sensors with 0 … 200 N right through to press force calibration sensors with 0 … 20 MN. Compact dynamometers in different sizes measure forces in several components. Kistler's KiTorq modular torque sensors with separate torque measuring unit and torque evaluation unit provides maximum measuring precision of up to 3 000 N∙m. Kistler piezoelectric or capacitive acceleration sensors, extremely lightweight yet rugged, operate in a high frequency range with high sensitivities and maximum dynamic movement.
