Kistler announces its recent acquisition of the Digital Transducer Interface (DTI) technology assets of the Hannover, Germany-based Hentschel System GmbH, bringing innovative digitization technology capabilities to its vehicle safety testing portfolio.
- Digitization enables high-reliability, high-speed data capture and analysis
- Allows for the full digitization of analogue data directly in sensor housing via built-in modules, or DiMods
- DiMod signal output transmission is achieved via standard bus connection to crash data recorder
- Recorder provides centralized memory storage for collected crash data, with data from up to 12 transducers able to be transmitted online via a single bus cable
- Small form factor of Kistler DiMods allow for easy integration into finished sensor designs without addition of significant mass
- Compact three-channel DiMod version, measuring 10 mm3, is also available for triaxial sensor integration requirements
- Optimization of DiMods for systems with standard sampling rates of 20 kHz, 100 kHz and 1 MHz is possible, enabling greater system versatility, performance and innovation
