Force sensors

Force sensors and transducers are used in various applications where parts are pressed, formed or assembled in a specified way to meet defined requirements. Kistler offers calibration services that compare your equipment against a higher-level standard. Different types of calibration are available to match your device and requirements.

  • Multi-component sensor calibration
  • Force calibration up to 20 MN
  • Torque calibration up to 20 kNm
  • Laboratories accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025

Torque and angle sensors

Dependable torque tools are essential whenever reliable threaded joints are needed in today's industrial production processes. As well as calibration, these tools need repeated verification throughout their lifetimes to maintain continuous high performance – the key to optimal results and compliance with specified standards. Kistler can calibrate sensors that measure reaction torque as well as sensors with rotating measuring shafts.

  • Calibration of torque wrenches to ISO 6789
  • Torque calibration up to 100 kN·m
  • Laboratories accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025

Acceleration sensors

Accurate acceleration sensors are essential to measure vibrations or oscillations in various applications. To meet this need, Kistler offers a vast range of customized solutions, including calibration services for monoaxial, triaxial and shock acceleration sensors and devices.

  • 3-component sensor calibration
  • Calibration up to 200 m/s2
  • Laboratories accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025

Pressure sensors

Pressure sensors from Kistler can measure extremely small pressure pulsations as well as very high pressures of up to 8,000 bar. A continuous calibration procedure is used for piezoelectric pressure sensors: the output signal from the Unit Under Test (UUT) is compared with a reference sensor as the pressure is continuously increased from zero to full scale and then reduced back to zero. The test sensor’s sensitivity is typically defined as the slope of a “best straight line” through the calibration curve.

Deadweight calibration is also available.

  • Extended temperature-controlled pressure calibration
  • Calibration up to 10,000 bar
  • Laboratories accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025

Electrical measurands

In order to verify complete measuring chains, Kistler also offers calibration services for electronic equipment such as DAQ systems. The major electrical measurands available include resistance, capacitance, voltage, charge and current, etc.

  • Static and dynamic calibration
  • All major electrical measurands
  • Laboratories accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025
