Kistler Instrument Corp.'s strain transmitters combine an advanced digital charge amplifier in a compact sensor housing, the company says. The type 9236 enables extremely easy adjustment to processing operations. Integral electronics enables programming sensor sensitivities by ManuWare software that matches the company's sensors to its signal conditioners or process monitors. Other adjustments to complicated processes, such as stepper motor settings are made with similar ease. This design allows the sensor to be used in several ranges, like charge mode, high impedance instruments, but eliminates cable noise issues. The piezoelectric element has high sensitivity, high overload protection and extremely long service life over strain gage types, according to the company.

Mounting the sensor is simplified by a single screw. The transmitter measures force indirectly through proportional material strain and thus can be located in more accessible locations within manufacturing machinery. A single, heavy duty cable rated at IP67 is resistant to production environments where involved processing and rigorous product quality testing may be improved with this communication proficient sensor.
