Kistler, a developer and producer of sensors for gauging force, pressure and torque, has unveiled its piezoelectric force sensor with a compact design named the Type 9393A, in the North American region. The sensor, which has accurate gauging qualities, is used to observe test apparatus and joining procedures.
The Type 9393A sensor can gauge both quasistatic and dynamic forces as it has a measuring range between 0 and 700 kN. The sensor can be employed in numerous applications when it is used along with an appropriate amplifier.
Kistler’s sensor delivers three ranges of standard measurements such as 0 to 1%, 0 to 10%, and 0 to 100%, with 190 mm height and 145 mm diameter. The sensor is having flanges connected to both ends. The design eases the sensor’s mechanical compatibility with a variety of machinery conditions. The sensor is proportioned in shape rotationally with respect to a center hole, which enables the sensor to be fixed on a press plunger or allows the fixing of connection rods on the sensor.
Each of the Type 9393A sensors is preloaded in the factory itself and transported as a standardized unit. Every sensor has centering rings to make the needed axial changes. The sensors are also marketed with the optional standardization of the Swiss Calibration Service.
