SENSOR+TEST 2013: Acceleration sensors for heavy-duty applications

Kistler sensors and measuring elements often outperform conventional sensors in many aspects. Often, they excel where products from other suppliers reach their limits. With the motto "Kistler Goes Beyond Limits", the traditional manufacturer emphasizes the unique selling point of its pressure, force, torque and acceleration sensors at the SENSOR+TEST 2013 trade show, which will take place from 14 through 16 May, 2013 in Nuremberg/Germany (Booth 327 in Hall 11). Kistler’s range of acceleration sensors for heavy-duty applications presented at the trade show also features one impressive innovation.

New Piezotron® acoustic emission (AE) sensor for heavy-duty conditions The new structure-borne noise transducer Type 8152C0… is ideal for measuring acoustic emissions above frequencies of 50 kHz on the surface of metal components, structures or systems. Such emissions are generated by plastic deformation, crack formation, fraction, friction, material fatigue or transient shocks. Areas of application for the new sensor include pre-emptive maintenance, monitoring of tools in machining and press equipment as well as leakage monitoring of pipes and valves. Thanks to its rugged design and impermeably welded housing, the new generation of AE sensors are perfect for deployment in challenging environments which require explosion protection to ATEX or for operation in high temperatures of up to 165 °C. The key properties of the Type 8152C0… sensor, which will be available as of July 2013, include high sensitivity, an optional frequency range of 50 … 400 kHz or 100 … 900 kHz, a voltage output (IEPE), a wide range of operating temperatures of between –55 … 165 °C, an insulated housing and cables with optional reinforcements in customized lengths.

Triaxial PiezoStar® miniature acceleration sensor for high-temperature applications Kistler’s family of PiezoStar triaxial cube acceleration sensors Type 8766AxxxAH with only 3.7 grams mass measures frequency events of between 0,5 … 10 000 Hz. The extremely low thermal sensitivity shift of –0,005 %/K allows versatile, high-accuracy measuring in changing temperatures of up to 165 °C. In contrast to ceramic piezoelectric sensors, the extremely stiff PiezoStar crystal sensing element offers a flat frequency response with no slope across the entire useable frequency range. Type 8766AxxxAH is a miniaturized light-weight PiezoStar® measuring element with hermetic titanium construction and three different mounting thread holes on each axis for adapterless, reliable mounting for the purpose of calibration and testing. With its extremely wide and flat frequency response this unique accelerometer was designed for use in modal and durability testing of automotive, aviation and aerospace structures at high temperatures as well as for the analysis of crash-induced noise emissions. It is equipped with a voltage output (IEPE). A variety of insulated adapters are available.

Single-axis PiezoStar® acceleration sensor for cryogenic environments Standard PiezoStar® IEPE accelerometers are suitable for operation in temperatures of between –55 … 165 °C. The new Type 8703A50M8 with a 50 g measuring range and a sensitivity of 100 mV/g is ideal for operation in environments with cryogenic temperatures down to –196 °C. Thanks to its hermetic titanium construction and very low temperature sensitivity, this sensor is perfect for environmental testing of space based equipment at large amplitudes including even cryogenic environments, which require highly dynamic but low vibration excitation. Type 8703A50M8 with only 8,8 grams mass guarantees accurate measuring across a wide dynamic measuring range. It is suitable for shock and vibration measuring in fast-changing temperatures, for product testing and qualification as well as for aviation and aerospace testing.
