Piezoelectric Force 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.
