Ideal for rocket engine validation testing, the Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products unveils its line of extreme-environment, high-precision displacement sensors and systems. In addition to rocket and turbine engine validation testing, the products also suit nuclear reactors, steam and gas turbines, chemical processes, and high temperature processing.
Three separate systems are available designed for high pressure, low temperature, and high temperature conditions, respectively. The extreme environment sensors and systems work in operating temperatures ranging from -320°F to +1,000°F (+1,200°F short term). Displacement systems withstand pressures up to 5,000 psi. Their dual-coil sensor design effectively minimizes temperature effects.
All of Kaman’s 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.
