Kistler is to showcase a range of test and development equipment at Automotive Testing Expo Europe next month.

Visitors to booth 1524 will be able to experience the new KiBox Cockpit V3.0, which incorporates a 16-channel option for mobile engine indication. Already common practice in vehicle safety, efficiency-increasing DTI (digital transducer interface) technology is now also moving into vehicle dynamics and durability. In addition to the new in-dummy crash recorder with start-record function, Kistler experts will explain the benefits of DTI technology.

Kistler is one of the first on the market to provide holistic measurement solutions using forward-thinking DTI technology, and therefore guarantees an efficient and quick test set-up. Only one cable is required for the configuration of sensors, measurement data transfer, synchronization, and power supply. Automated sensor recognition using TEDS makes the configuration process even easier.

“For example, in-vehicle test set-up is made even simpler and more user-friendly by employing the new KiRoad Wireless P1 unit’s WLAN data transfer, in combination with DTI technology,” said Stefan Zuckschwert, Kistler sales manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Kistler’s compact KiBox adds to the engine indication product range for the in-vehicle and testbed environments. The KiBox reliably records and processes data for critical combustion related parameters, supporting detailed thermodynamic analyses of engine performance. This data can easily be integrated into the engine control unit measurement environment.

For crash tests, Kistler’s new, compact recorder family DTI375.XX has a non-volatile flash data memory and a start-record function that guarantees compatibility with existing Kistler onboard systems.

The measurement data is digitized in the sensor itself, stored in the crash recorder and is then transferable for subsequent crash analyses. Type DTI375.TH has an exceptionally high number of measurement channels – 288 in total – and its mechanical design is specifically geared toward the spatial dimensions of THOR dummies.
