Accelerometers from Kistler


This Component Finder helps you to find generic accelerometers that can be used for general measurements in research and development or in test laboratories. Besides generic accelerometers, Kistler offers a vast range of customized solutions for acceleration measurement in specific applications (see the information box on the right).

Accurate accelerometers are essential when measuring vibrations that can be heard as noise or felt as oscillations in vehicles or machines (noise, vibration, harshness – NVH). In bridge-building as well as space programs, vibration measurement is a key factor in verifying safety and cost-effectiveness. Piezoelectric accelerometers from Kistler always keep precise track of amplitude and frequency when measuring vibrations.

“To achieve the possible, we must attempt the impossible” – this was already clear to German author and Nobel Prize winner Hermann Hesse. Engineers Walter P. Kistler and Hans Conrad Sonderegger achieved something seemingly impossible in 1950 when they invented and patented the world’s first charge amplifier (charge/voltage converter) – a breakthrough that ushered in the widespread industrial use of piezoelectric measurement technology and laid the foundation for the success story of the Kistler Group that was established nine years later in Winterthur (Switzerland).
