Industrial production is switching over from analog to digital systems as data communication becomes increasingly more complex to meet the demands of Industry 4.0.
Older bus systems such as Profibus and CANbus are gradually reaching their performance limits and Industrial Ethernet gains ground as the global communication standard. Kistler Instruments is one of the few companies in the world able to provide the complete measuring chain from piezoelectric sensors measuring acceleration, force, pressure and toque via signal conditioning that offers communication based on real time-capable Industrial Ethernet. Using state of the art techniques, Kistler components and systems allow flexible process monitoring that matches the developing needs of data generation and communication in every industrial sector.
As a world leader in the design and application of piezoelectric sensors and associated systems for manufacturing industries from automotive, aerospace and pharmaceuticals to plastics moulding, instrumentation and medical technology, Kistler offers an entirely new kind of solution for data acquisition and communication which more than meets the demands of Industry 4.0; now and into the future.
