New tool for optimized mobile combustion analysis from Kistler

LinkedIn +

Thanks to Kistler’s KiBox, information about combustion, injection valve actuation and ignition can be reliably captured, processed and viewed in the familiar INCA test environment, among others. The new KiBox Cockpit V3.0 can be extended to 16 channels with the help of two cascaded boxes – so it is even better prepared to handle test bench applications.

Users themselves can also program real-time calculations based on their own algorithms, so they can protect their know-how. A driver update also makes the KiBox Cockpit V3.0 compatible with the most recent INCA version (7.2), so it matches the latest stage of the application tool’s development.

Specifically designed for onboard or test bench use, Kistler’s compact KiBox supplies detailed information about the combustion process, including time- or angle-based cylinder pressures and other relevant parameters for engine developers.

Depending on the application, the innovative CrankSmart system can be used − or alternatively, an optical crank angle encoder can be selected for angle sensing. All the key parameters for engine development are recorded with parallel calculation and output in real time.
