Advantages of Kistler Instruments’ Cylinder Pressure Indication on the Test Bench

June 2019, MARIETTA, GA ~ Accurate measurements of cylinder pressure and crank angle as well as intake and exhaust-gas pressure are absolutely crucial factors when developing combustion engines. Kistler offers a comprehensive portfolio of combustion analysis technology for a variety of applications, ranging from water-cooled and uncooled piezoelectric cylinder pressure sensors to measuring spark plugs and glow plug adapters with integrated miniature pressure sensors. Piezoresistive absolute pressure sensors for gas exchange and injection pressure measurements with digital temperature compensation guarantee maximum precision. Kistler's high-performance products also include the KiBox and SCP signal conditioning systems. Thanks to a wide range of interfaces, measurement results are easily transmitted to other instruments.
