- Connectors: 2 x KIAG 10-32 pos.
Charge mode, high impedance piezoelectric measurement demands highly insulated coaxial cables and connectors to ensure an insulation resistance greater than 1E13 Ω throughout the measuring chain. Only low noise coaxial cables that produce very little triboelectricity during movement may be used. The connectors must be robust, sealed and resistant to dirt. Kistler connectors have been developed specifically to meet these requirements and are made of stainless steel. Unlike galvanized connectors they are therefore not subject to any wear, and measurement reliability and accuracy are improved. All Kistler connectors contain an O-ring seal at the cable end and the connection end. Most Kistler sensors have a connection with a KIAG 10-32 or M4 male thread. Connectors with a swivel nut and versions with an integral thread are available for both variants. The one-piece body of the connectors with an integral thread can be welded to the sensor in order to ensure that, for example when the sensor is firmly mounted, the screw connection cannot work loose. For the connection of connectors with an integral thread, cable and sensor must be able to rotate freely in relation to each other. The abbreviation pos. stands for male and neg. for female connectors.
