April 4, 2019 - The Kistler Group announced the launch of KiXact. This is the first technology that enables measurement uncertainty to be automatically calculated and interpreted by the user. With KiXact, Kistler is now offering a solution for users to deal with the uncertainty of measurement.
As part of the KiDAQ data acquisition system, the KiXact technology automatically calculates measurement uncertainty. The results can be analyzed using the KiStudio Lab software provided. External influencing factors such as ambient temperature and humidity for the respective measurement are stored in the program and included in the KiXact calculation. Because Kistler supplies the complete measurement chain, KiXact is already adjusted to the relevant setup and associated sensors.
An uncertainty of measurement is not an exception – every measurement result in research and industry is associated with a certain degree of inaccuracy. Even small fluctuations in the ambient temperature can lead to deviations that make the result unreliable and unusable. Whenever decisions are based on a measurement result, it is important to have an indication of the quality.
The KiDAQ data acquisition system is modular in terms of both hardware and software. Kistler offers a range of measurement modules as well as various analog and digital inputs. The modules are available in three different housing variants. As a result, they offer the user flexibility for every measurement task. Multiple measuring devices can be combined and are precisely time-synchronized. Furthermore the measurement platform based on cloud-technologies enables extensions for future applications, even through partner companies.
