Piezoelectric Force Sensor
By Design Engineering StaffGeneral Kistler sensor
Kistler miniature sensor designed for plastics injection mold cavity measurements.
Kistler has introduced its Type 9211BE miniature quartz force sensor, designed for dynamic and quasi-static mold cavity measurements of up to 3,000 bar (43,511 psi), over a range of 0 to 2,500 N, in support of demanding plastics injection molding operations.
Measuring six millimeters, the sensor operates on the piezoelectric principle and features the company’s single-wire technology, allowing for the shortening of an individual cable to required length. Single-wire cables transmit the necessary electrical charge with required shielding provided by the injection mold itself, with both cables and connectors completely integrated into the mold.
