Force measurement using piezoelectric sensors - Seminar

A one day seminar by Kistler Instruments, a world leader in piezoelectric sensor technology, will cover the theory of piezoelectric sensors and is designed to provide an introduction to the practical application of piezoelectric measurement in both laboratory and industrial environments.

Although piezoelectric sensor technology has many advantages over other types of sensor technologies, a clear understanding of piezoelectric measurement is essential for the full benefits to be obtained under real world conditions. The seminar will be relevant to all those responsible for designing and building instrumentation and measurement systems, especially where challenging environmental conditions may be encountered. A major quality of piezoelectric sensors is the ability to monitor highly dynamic impact events, often under harsh operating conditions.

The subjects to be covered include:
Design, principles & benefits of piezoelectric sensors.
A practical exercise on fitting & mounting of a force sensor.
Charge signal conditioning and system integration.
Calibration and measurement.

The seminars will be held at the AMP Tech Centre, Sheffield on the 6th November 2012 and at Kents Hill Park, Milton Keynes on 8th November 2012. The delegate fee is £200 for a single delegate and £175 per delegate for two or more. The fee includes all course material, refreshments and lunch.
