Kistler’s Type 5074A charge amplifier breaks new ground in industrial charge amplifier technology for the Industry 4.0 era.
This unit is currently the only piezoelectric sensor amplifier on the market that offers communication based on real-time capable Industrial Ethernet. For the first time, plant and machinery manufacturers can integrate any desired piezoelectric sensors directly into a real time-capable Ethernet system to easily make settings on the measurement amplifier.
Available with one, two, three of four channels, each with a measuring range of 20 to 1,000,000 pC and integral 24 bit analog to digital conversion, allowing up to four piezoelectric sensors per unit to be connected to the digital network without additional equipment or complex and costly cabling for analog and control signals. The high-performance data transmission at up to 50k samples/s per channel enables real-time transmission of measurement data with cycle times as short as 100μs, allowing critical process controls to be fully implemented.
This innovative product is an ideal choice for monitoring and optimizing industrial manufacturing and assembly processes using all types of piezoelectric sensors. The new amplifier brings an exceptionally wide range of measuring functions which make it the perfect partner for Industrial Ethernet in applications that call for dynamic and quasi-static measurements.
