With a wide dynamic range of 0 to 700 kN, the Kistler Type 9393A is designed
to measure both dynamic and quasi-static forces. The sensor is offered in three
calibrated measurement ranges of 0-100, 0-10 and 0-1 percent. The compact
design of the Kistler Type 9393A features a diameter of 145 mm and a height of
190 mm with flange connections on both ends, providing greater flexibility for
easy mechanical adaptation within various machinery environments. The Type
9393A is also rotationally symmetrical in shape with a center hole, allowing
for the mounting of connecting rods or for installation on a press plunger.
Units are factory preloaded, shipped as a standard calibrated unit and are
ready-to-mount for immediate use, with supplied centering rings for necessary
axial adjustments. In addition, the Kistler Type 9393A is available with
optional calibration by the Swiss Calibration Service (SCS).
As a piezoelectric sensor, the Kistler Type 9393A is capable
of high-repeatability precision measurements over a dynamic range, allowing the
same press force sensor to be used within a variety of applications when paired
with a suitable amplifier, such as the ICAM Type 5073A. When using the
Kistler Type 9393A piezoelectric force sensor at a lower measurement range, an
overload protection factor of up to 100 is provided, eliminating the need for
other protective measures.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
