Kistler's Signal Conditioning Platform: Now on the Network

Winterthur, 26 November 2015 – Kistler is launching a new and improved Signal Conditioning Platform (SCP) that ensures process reliability and enables early detection of unsafe operating conditions in fixed or mobile combustion analysis applications.

For over 50 years, Kistler's innovative solutions for high-precision combustion analysis have ensured the firm's leading position in the global market. With new Ethernet options and an improved software interface, Kistler’s new SCP for high-speed combustion analysis centralizes equipment configuration and optimizes usability for maximum flexibility.

Flexible System with Centralized Control
Kistler’s network-compatible SCP can be equipped with application-specific measuring modules to accomplish various measuring tasks. The new platform allows virtual linkage of the systems deployed, so all SCPs can be operated from one centrally controlled PC. Thomas Kley, Kistler's Product Manager in the Engine R&D Strategic Business Field, emphasizes the high flexibility and usability of this newly developed product: ‘A host of user-friendly functions position the new SCP on the market as a powerfully attractive combustion analysis system.’

Intuitive GUI for Simple and Quick Data Handling
The SCP’s GUI provides an overview of all key data, such as measuring module configurations, sensor data and operating times, so that all changes can be made on a single screen. An ‘Export’ function converts the data into various formats to document all the measurement settings. Cylinder peak pressure histograms for each sensor can be created at the click of a button while users can immediately detect sensor load and strain, as well as any irregularities.

Real-Time Monitoring for Early Detection of Unsafe Operating Conditions
A CAN bus interface allows for the digital capture and real-time monitoring of cylinder peak pressures in addition to the operating temperature of low pressure piezoresistive sensors. This data allows users to immediately recognize engine or equipment damaging events and take corrective action, thereby avoiding unsafe operating conditions.

Kistler PiezoSmart® Sensors Ensure Process Reliability
PiezoSmart® guarantees the correct allocation of sensor data as errors caused by manual data handling can be eliminated and preparation effort is reduced to the minimum. PiezoSmart® allows historical monitoring and an assessment of an existing sensor portfolio.

Two versions of Kistler's new SCP are available. The Type 2853B model (8 slots or 16 channels) is suitable for engine indication on the test bench. SCP Slim Type 2852B (with 2 slots or 4 channels) is suitable for both mobile and test bench applications. For existing SCPs (Kistler Type 2853A), Kistler offers Type 5615BFK and 5615BRK Upgrade Kits for retrofit.
