Kistler Instrumente AG has developed multichannel cable technology to simplify the installation of cavity-pressure sensors in complex multicavity molds.
Previously, each cavity-pressure sensor required a separate cable to the charge amplifier, making installation time consuming and presenting a potential risk of incorrect connection. The new multichannel cable system uses single-wire technology to replace multiple connections with one or more eight-pin plug-in connectors.
In the new system, cables from up to eight sensors are brought to a single mold-mounted connector from which a multicore cable carries signals to the charge amplifier. The specially designed multichannel charge amplifier is suitable for use with all Kistler Unisens single-wire sensors.
The company is based in Winterthur.
