At Sensors Expo & Conference 2019, in San Jose from June 25 to 27, 2019, at booth 1415, Kistler will be introducing a milestone in measurement technology to the U.S. market: its new KiDAQ data acquisition system. KiDAQ not only provides users with high fidelity measurements as standalone DAQ and optionally the complete measuring chain from sensor to cloud, but also the world’s first automated calculation of the measurement uncertainty.
As the world market leader in piezoelectric measurement technology, Kistler has for decades been providing engineers, researchers, technicians and students with high grade measuring equipment for challenging measurement tasks. As Manuel Blattner, Head of the Strategic Business Field Test & Measurement at Kistler, explains “Sensors Expo & Conference is one of the most important platforms for us to showcase our sensor and measurement technology products and systems. Our presentation of the KiDAQ data acquisition system to visitors this year represents a real milestone.
KiXact: Expertise across the entire measuring chain
The significant advantage offered by KiDAQ is the new KiXact functionality, which automatically calculates the measurement uncertainty. As the measuring chain components are each qualified and individually calibrated for the customer’s application, KiXact is intimately acquainted with their characteristics, and so can reliably increase the certainty of measurement for the application. Customers have always been able to significantly reduce the effect of this uncertainty by consulting Kistler to optimize deployment conditions and their selection of equipment. Now with KiDAQ, they can have complete confidence in the true level of uncertainty for their full measuring chain.
Swift setup, flexible application
KiDAQ is modularly designed and can be configured to suit any customer requirement or application. Depending on the application sector, measurement technicians and engineers can choose from diverse ranges of versions, designed specifically for laboratory applications, fixed installations or use out in the field. With the software bundle consisting of KiStudio Lab (data acquisition) and jBEAM (data analysis), the measurement setup is completed quickly and easily, allowing the user to focus on the measurement and analysis of the acquired data.
