Kistler's portfolio includes a variety of piezoelectric and piezoresistive sensors to measure pressure – so we can offer the right solution for many applications.
Due to their high natural frequencies, piezoelectric sensors can be used for a variety of applications where dynamic pressures need to be measured. Another unique characteristic of piezoelectric sensors is their ability to measure small pressure fluctuations that are superimposed on top of high static pressures with exceptional resolutions.
By contrast, piezoresistive pressure sensors are the right choice when measuring static pressure curves.
Piezoelectric Pressure Sensors
- Measurement of highly dynamic, dynamic and quasi-static pressure curves
- Ability to measure very small pressure fluctuations (pressure pulsations) that are superimposed on top of high static pressures with exceptional resolutions
- One pressure sensor can cover extensive measurement ranges, from mbar (mpsi) to 10 kbar (145kpsi)
- Very short rise times (1µs) resp. very high natural frequencies (500 kHz)
- Very wide temperature range, from cryogenic to 350°C (660°F)
- Ultra-compact sensor dimensions
- Piezoelectric pressure sensors with charge (PE) and voltage (IEPE) output
Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors
- High-precision static and quasi-static pressure measurements
- Wide temperature range, from -40 to 200°C (-40 to 390°F)
- Small sensor dimensions (e.g. M5)
- Available with integrated signal amplifiers
- Optional ATEX certification
- Piezoresistive pressure sensors with voltage (mV or V) and current output (mA)
