Kaman
Precision Products
launched its Extreme Environment line of high-precision
displacement sensors and systems for high-accuracy applications. They’re also suited
for high-temperature applications, thanks to a rugged, all-welded and hermetic
construction.

The
sensors are available in three different specialized systems – high pressure,
low temperature, and high-temperature conditions. Thanks to a dual-coil sensor
design, the effects of temperature are decreased. The “Extreme Environment”
sensors and systems work at temperatures of -320°F to +1000°F (+1200°F short
term). Displacement systems can withstand pressures of up to 5000 psi.

Kaman’s
high-temperature transducers feature hermetically sealed, all laser-welded
Inconel housings and Inconel-jacketed, mineral-insulated cable, which allow the
sensors to remain impervious to environmental contaminants. They can also
withstand corrosive gas and liquid environments.

 

The
Extreme Environment displacement sensors, including the KD-1925, KD-1950 and
KD-1975, use KDM-8206EE signal conditioning electronics. They are available
with a full variable channeled rack with up to 12 channels, a half-rack system
with up to 6 channels, and a NEMA housing enclosure.

The
company said the sensors are suited for use in rocket and turbine engine
validation testing, as well as other applications that depend upon high reliability,
accuracy, and structural integrity. Such applications may include nuclear reactors,
chemical processes, high-temperature processing, and steam and gas turbines.
