Swiss-based testing technology supplier Kistler has launched a new and improved signal conditioning platform (SCP) that it says ensures process reliability and facilitates early detection of unsafe operation conditions in combustion analysis applications.
With new Ethernet options and an improved software interface, Kistler says its new SCP for high-speed combustion analysis centralizes equipment configuration and optimizes usability for maximum flexibility.
The platform also allows virtual linkage of the systems deployed, so all SCPs can be operated from one centrally controlled PC, and a CAN bus interface allows for the digital capture and real-time monitoring of cylinder peak pressures in addition to the operating temperature of low pressure piezoresistive sensors.
This data allows users to immediately recognize engine or equipment damaging events and take corrective action, thereby avoiding unsafe operating conditions.
