MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – The measuring division of Kaman Precision Products Inc. in Middletown, Conn., is introducing the KD-1925, KD-1950, and KD-1975 extreme-environment high-precision displacement sensors and systems for rocket and turbine engine validation testing.

These harsh-environment sensors also are suitable for nuclear reactors, steam and gas turbines, chemical processes, and high temperature processing applications that require high accuracy, high reliability, and structural integrity.

Three separate systems are available for high-pressure, low-temperature, and high-temperature conditions. The extreme-environment sensors and systems work in operating temperatures from -320 to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Displacement systems withstand pressures as high as 5000 pounds per square inch, and their dual-coil sensor design helps minimize temperature effects.

All of Kaman's high-temperature transducers are made with hermetically sealed, all laser-welded Inconel housings and use Inconel-jacketed, mineral-insulated cable. The sensors are unaffected by environmental contaminants and can withstand corrosive gas or liquid environments.

The displacement sensors use KDM-8206EE signal conditioning electronics, which are available in a variable-channeled rack with as many as 12 channels; a half rack system with as many as six channels; and the NEMA housing enclosure.
