Kaman Measuring Announces Extreme Environment Displacement Sensors and Systems for High Pressure, Low Temperature, and High Temperature Applications

The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products announced the availability of its line of extreme environment high-precision displacement sensors and systems. The company says their proven design and rugged all-welded and hermetic construction, the sensors and systems are ideal for rocket and turbine engine validation testing.

Three separate systems are available, specifically designed for high pressure, low temperature, and high temperature conditions. The extreme environment sensors and systems work in operating temperatures ranging from -320°F to +1000°F (+1200°F short term). Displacement systems withstand pressures up to 5000 pound-force per square inch (psi). Their dual-coil sensor design effectively minimizes temperature effects. Kaman says all of their high temperature transducers are made with hermetically sealed, all laser-welded Inconel housings and use and Inconel-jacketed, mineral-insulated cable. The sensors are unaffected by environmental contaminants and can withstand corrosive gas or liquid environments.

The KD-1925, KD-1950 and KD-1975 Extreme Environment displacement sensors use KDM-8206EE signal conditioning electronics. Available are a full variable channeled rack (with up to 12 channels), a half rack system (with up to six channels) and the NEMA housing enclosure.

The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products follows rigorous aerospace quality systems and the manufacturing facility is certified to AS9100 and ISO 9001.
