Water-cooled cylinder
pressure sensor
Kistler (Winterthur, Germany) has introduced
its latest M8 miniature cylinderpressure
sensor. The 6041C sensor incorporates
PiezoStar crystals for more
improved temperature measurement
accuracy as well as improved thermodynamic
behavior with minimal sensorto-sensor
deviation. Kistler states these
advances provide the sensor with a higher
natural frequency and excellent thermal
stability within the application temperature
range of 50°±30°C. The sensor
can be installed in a sleeve or directly
into an M8x0.75 bore and can be either
flush-mounted or recess-mounted. Like
its predecessors, the 6041C cylinder pressure
sensor is very compact and can be
mounted in bores as small as 12 mm
(0.47 inches) in diameter. The sensor is
compatible for mounting with its predecessors
as well as the uncooled variants.

Upgraded antenna connector
Hirose (Yokohama,
Japan) has reduced
the size of its 2.5 GHz
high-frequency antenna
connector to
offer significant
space-savings in automotive
antenna systems.
Its latest connector,
the GT21
Series, features a onestep
crimp termination system that provides consistent assembly
in a shorter timeframe. The connector's design also
ensures that cable assembly can be completed without
touching the center conductor, which enables better positioning.
The connector's locking mechanism is constructed to
handle NVH conditions found in automotive applications and
can operate in temperatures from -40 to +105°C (-40 to
+221°F). The GT21 Series is available in three termination variations,
and the antenna connector supports single coaxial,
2-port, 3-port and 4-port cable terminations.

Thermal measurement system
Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (Norwood, Massachusetts)
has introduced the iQx instrument system for measurement of
air temperature and velocity, surface temperature, air-pressure
drop and humidity. The iQx is equipped with input ports for up
to eight air temperature/velocity sensors, four J type thermocouples,
two pressure sensors and one humidity sensor. These
can be positioned in different locations within a system under
test, such as an electronic enclosure. The system is supplied
with all necessary components except temperature and velocity
sensors. The company offers several different sensors for
use in the eight available ports. Temperatures tracked range
from -10 to +120°C (+14 to +248°F) and air velocity ranges from
0 to 50 m/s (10,000 ft/min). Most of these sensors can be intermingled,
depending on testing needs.

Precise analyzer for electrical components
Marposs (Auburn Hills,
Michigan) has announced
its LT400 system, a laboratory
windings quality
analyzer designed to perform
partial-discharge
(PD) measurements on
electrical components
such as coils, motors and
generators. The analyzer
can perform standard
high voltage tests (AC and Pulse) with PD measurements to
detect defects standard tests cannot. The LT400 utilizes
E.D.C. partial discharge to measure component performance,
which is less sensitive to external noise compared to antennatype
measurement. The LT400 also utilizes the same software
as production line testing, which streamlines the correlation
of the laboratory results to production testing. It can also
combine and configure several tests within the same inspection
cycle, accomplishing a task that would normally require
several different instruments.
