Kistler (Wien, Austria) announced its new Type 9831D welding force calibration transmitter that offers readout and configuration via the digital IO-Link interface as an option.

IO-Link improves flexibility and interoperability to deliver a more user-friendly experience when testing and calibrating robotic welding guns, as well as the force and strain sensor technology integrated in them.

Features:

  • Pre-calibrated
  • Ready to operate with a standard ex-works sensitivity of 1 mV/N
  • Maximum measurement accuracy and repeatability
  • Integrated detection of the welding voltage
  • Interchangeable inserts

IO-Link contributions:

  • Ability to send digital measurement data and receive input signals in real time
  • Enables remote configuration and monitoring of the device
  • Optional high and low-pass filters as well as possibilities for signal inversion and amplification
  • Improves compatibility and interoperability among devices from different manufacturers
  • Enhanced control, flexibility and integration capability for all specialized resistance spot welding systems and plants

Various mount adapters are available for the welding force transmitter, and the Quick-Mount adapter allows operation of the device by one person only. The device's ground-insulated design improves workplace safety by preventing unintentional welding.

An optional handle (already familiar from the Type 9831C predecessor model) is available to make it easier to transport the transmitter.
