Kistler aims to open a vast range of applications for piezoelectric sensor technology in digital production environments through the launch of its 5028A, a new miniature charge amplifier with IO-Link. This charge amplifier combines analog and digital technologies and uses IO-Link technology to output analog signals from piezoelectric sensors as digital measurement data. As a result, users can benefit from the strengths of piezoelectric measurement technology while keeping the advantages of resistance to interference and end-to-end communication. IO-Link helps monitor plant status providing real-time data. This opens the way to predictive maintenance: for example, users can initiate maintenance tasks on a plant if data is regularly outside of the setpoint range

Can also be used as an analog charge amplifier

Incorporating a digital interface into the 5028A means another step towards the smart networked factory in keeping with the goals of Industry 4.0. The raw analog signal is already digitized in the amplifier. This avoids interference due to inductive or capacitive couplings. Moreover, complex and costly individual cabling for analog and control signals is eliminated. As required, the 5028A can also be used as an analog charge amplifier with a reset/operate input. In this mode, it delivers the performance needed to control very fast processes with low latency and jitter. Stefan Affeltranger, Product Manager in Kistler's Production Monitoring section explains: "The 5028A is the world's first amplifier for measurement data from piezoelectric sensors that offers communication based on IO-Link. This device will fit easily into almost any industrial application that calls for lightweight components and simple solutions."

A fitted solution for highly automated environments

Lightweight and compact, the 5028A 1-channel-charge amplifier is ideal for use in highly automated environments – on robot arms, for example, or on other moving parts. Thanks to its standardized interfaces, the 5028A can be integrated into virtually any manufacturing environment with IO-Link capability. The new device can be used generally in mechanical engineering and plant construction applications; it is also highly suitable for strictly regulated sectors such as medical technology, because all changes to settings are saved and can be verified at any time. Last, the 5028A makes it easier for users to start out in the world of piezoelectric sensor technology: the investment costs are low, and IO-Link delivers extra added value – an aspect that is also highlighted by the IO-Link Consortium.

On May 14 at 10 a.m. (CET), Stefan Affeltranger, Product Manager at Kistler, will speak about the new 5028A and its benefits for the industry on a webinar.
