Kistler presents new LabAmp 5167A with Fischer

Winterthur, 12 April 2017 – Kistler enlarges its portfolio of laboratory charge amplifiers with the new LabAmp 5167A, which allows for quasi-static charge measurements and adds new features to the LabAmp family. A special version with Fischer-connector is available that is waterproof and compatible with all new stationary force dynamometers for metal cutting applications. Providing users with more flexibility, the amplifiers are able to quickly and easily acquire digitized data from actual measuring signals without complicated additional equipment. The product portfolio is completed by a new Version of the DynoWare software for easy to handle data acquisition and analysis.

In order to receive usable measurement results, the underlying sensor signals must be conditioned and processed accurately and low-noised. Here, Kistler offers an attractive portfolio of solutions for signal conditioning and subsequent data digitization. Piezoelectric sensors with a charge output (PE sensors) operate reliably with charge amplifiers.

New quasi-static charge amplifier and data acquisition solution

In 2017, Kistler launches the LabAmp 5167A for generic test and measurement force applications in a laboratory environment. The signal conditioning device is the market’s only quasi-static charge amplifier and data acquisition solution with such impressive versatility. Its powerful digital signal processing allows for perfectly tailored filters and easy force summation. The integrated data acquisition provides flexibility and simplifies the measuring chain. The product is available as a four or eight channel charge amplifier with Fischer or BNC input and BNC output connectors. It offers measuring ranges from 100 … 1’000’000 pC and has a frequency response of ≈0 Hz … >45 kHz.

“Here, we go from a simple charge amplifier towards a customer-oriented solution. In addition to valuable technical improvements such as charge ranges, noise and filters, the integrated data acquisition and full digital signal processing not only greatly simplifies the measuring chain, but also allows direct integration into a customer’s software environment”, explains Martin Stierli, product manager for test and measurement signal conditioning at Kistler.

Gunnar Keitzel, product manager for cutting force applications at Kistler emphases: “With the aggregation of charge amplifier and data acquisition in one device we fulfil the requirement of rough machining environment by reducing the number of cables and offer much easier usability”.

To be integrated into semi- or fully automated measurement systems, the LabAmp 5167A has two separate digital inputs for remote reset/measure and trigger. Hereby the amplifier/data acquisition functionality can be controlled by an external digital signal. With the low-noise charge front end, smaller signals can also be measured, ensuring more accurate measurement results.

The LabAmp family as complete measurement solution

With the new LabAmp family feature “Precision Time Protocol (PTP) synchronization”, Kistler has implemented a new, attractive way to connect multiple devices and synchronize data from multiple devices in a network. For the synchronization, there is no need for complicated additional equipment, only the existing Ethernet cables are needed.

Also, 5167A devices can be combined with the LabAmp 5165A which allow for the pairing of quasi-static force measurements from the 5167A with acceleration signals of a piezoelectric sensor with integrated electronics (IEPE) or voltage acquisition on a LabAmp 5165A. By this, Kistler provides a complete measurement solution for a wide range of measurements in metal cutting operations.

Software solutions for the LabAmp family

The LabAmp family comes with a simple and efficient user interface to get started. By using a standard web browser, no additional software installations have to be made and the device is readily available for simple and precise measurements. The advanced solution is to use the Dynoware software that was updated to be compatible with the LabAmp family.

The Dynoware is an easy to use software for device configuration, data acquisition including predefined mathematic operations to calculate the resulting forces and torque from multi-component dynamometers and functionalities for data analysis and visualization. This makes the synchronized data acquisition allowing several devices to be configured simultaneously and to capture data from several devices trigger-based in a single file as easy as winking. The LabAmp 5167A can also be integrated into LabVIEW™ based programs.

Visit us at the Aachener Werkzeugmaschinen Kolloquium

Kistler will launch the new LabAmp 5167A for the first time in the field of cutting force at the Aachener Werkzeugmaschinen Kolloquium in Aachen, Germany from May 18 to May 19, 2017. Visit our Kistler experts at our exhibition stand in front of the presentation rooms and find out more about our innovative amplifier portfolio.
