Kistler at Advanced Manufacturing

Kistler Instruments will be showing a new low cost, contactless torque sensors plus its wide range of acceleration, force, pressure and torque sensors and associated electronics and software at this years mtec.

From acceleration to torque via pressure and force, Kistler is a world leader in the design and manufacture of high quality, high reliability sensors for research and development applications.

Now, Kistler is moving into the manufacturing sector with a new range of contactless, low maintenance torque sensors costing no more than slip-ring types, typically around £1,500 (ca €1700).

Using non-contact signal transmission eliminates wear making the new sensor exceptionally robust and maintenance free, even in continuous use.

The Type 4520A is available with rated torque from 1 to 1,000 Nm with accuracy class of 0.5 at speeds up to 10,000 rpm. Output is the standard ±10 V plus a speed signal of 60 pulses/rev and remotely switchable 100% test function.
