Kistler Instruments to Demonstrate the maXYmos TL Monitoring System at the Automotive Engineering Show, NEC 2013

On Stand F81 at the Automotive Engineering show at the NEC 12th to 13th November, Kistler Instruments will be showing an extensive range of sensors and systems for automotive development and production.

Vehicle dynamics testing systems from Kistler Automotive include non-contact optical sensors, wheel force transducers, GPS, microwave sensors, mechanical sensors, fuel flow meters, data acquisition and evaluation systems and software. This unique combination of application expertise and specialised equipment provide complete solutions for virtually all vehicle dynamics testing applications.

The Kistler NCF electro-mechanical actuators are a cost effective alternative to mechanical and hydraulic systems for press fit production operations. Integrated sensor technology and powerful force-displacement evaluation allow complete process monitoring and documentation of all measurement results. Low cost of ownership combined with ease of installation and operational flexibility make the NCF range ideal for a wide range of industrial applications.

The latest version of the Kistler XY monitoring system, the maXYmos TL, has increased capability with up to 8 XY channels and compatibility with a wide range of sensor types and communication protocols making it ideal for a variety of demanding process monitoring and product testing applications.

 

Kistler XY monitoring system, the maXYmos TL.

 

The maXYmos TL, TL standing for “Top Level”, may be used for the same simple force-displacement monitoring as the basic version but the extended functionality makes more challenging assembly and product testing applications well within its capability. The extensive functionality and straightforward operating concept using an intelligent touch screen menu system have been proved on the maXYmos BL. Key features of this high end XY monitor are more powerful evaluation techniques, a larger selection of connectable sensors, wide range of fieldbus types, expandability up to 8 pairs of XY-channels and a large (10.4"), high-resolution, colour touch screen display.

The fast data acquisition rate of 20kHz and cycle times down to 0.05 second, compatibility with a wide range of force, torque, pressure, position and angle sensors and communication with a number of different PLC types using Profibus DP, Ethernet/IP, PROFINET & EtherCAT connectivity provides the speed and flexibility demanded by current production methods and test regimes. The system can accept signal input from a wide selection of sources including strain gauge, piezoelectric and potentiometer sensors, +/-10V, LVDT, incremental and SSI encoders. The system analyses the relationship between any two inputs or one input against time and can be expanded to monitor up to eight XY pairs using one master display.

The Kistler maXYmos X-Y process monitors provide a flexible monitoring and control solution for many manufacturing applications.
