Cylinder Pressure Indication with Kistler – Precise, Solution-Oriented and Cost-Effective.

One measurand above all others is critically important when developing combustion engines – cylinder pressure as a function of the crank angle. Cylinder pressure indication allows analysis of the combustion process, carburetion and engine gas exchange. This makes it possible to assess and compare engine parameters for research and development purposes. The objectives: enhanced efficiency and power, improved comfort and reduced emissions. Backed by over 50 years of experience, Kistler is the global market leader for highest-quality solutions in cylinder pressure and gas exchange sensor technology.
