MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Kaman Precision Products in Middletown, Conn., is introducing the KD-2446 non-contact high-precision integrated measuring system for a variety of displacement, vibration, sorting, and capture applications that use target materials such as ferrous steel, stainless steel or aluminum.

The Kaman KD-2446 uses eddy currents, operating on the principle of impedance variation caused by eddy currents induced in a conductive target by a sensor coil. This technology is capable of sub-micro inch resolution. Another application is RPM sensing in harsh environments.

This device offers high-precision measuring capabilities with resolution to 12 micro inches. It also offers opto-isolated switched output for process control, making it suitable for interfacing to PLC inputs, counters, timers, or alarm circuits.

Key elements of the KD-2446 include 12 to 24 volts DC variable voltage input; operation in temperatures as hot as 400 degrees Fahrenheit; 10 KHz analog output; 3.3 KHz switched output; less than 1 percent switching hysteresis on ferrous targets; and RoHS compliance.
