Piezotron® Quartz Pressure Sensor Type 6613CP

for Engine Diagnostics

Piezoelectric sensor with integrated amplifier (Piezotron®) for L=1m

periodically cylinder pressure measuring in medium and high
speed engines, suitable for all types of fuel, e.g. HFO, Diesel m

0 Fischer SE103
and various types of gas.

• Robust design
• M10x1 mounting thread
• Suitable for knock detection 12


Description SW 14

The sensor and the Piezotron® amplifier are connected by a 17

strong, fluorelastomer coated cable. The quartz-measuring
element is extremely stable and provides a very accurate signal
over the whole life time. The sensor has an M10x1 moun-
ting thread for mounting into the Kistler Thompson-Adapter
6513A for measuring at the indicator valve of medium speed
engines. The small size allows also the installation direct in the Technical Data
cylinder head.
