The Extreme Environment sensors and systems work in operating temperatures ranging from -320°F to +1000°F (+1200°F short term).

With all-welded and hermetic construction, the sensors and systems are ideal for rocket and turbine engine validation testing, according to Kaman. They are also offered for other applications that require high accuracy, high reliability, and structural integrity, including nuclear reactors, steam and gas turbines, chemical processes, and high temperature processing.

Three separate systems are available, specifically designed for high pressure, low temperature, and high temperature conditions. Displacement systems withstand pressures up to 5000 pound-force per square inch (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 Inconel-jacketed, mineral-insulated cable. The sensors are unaffected by environmental contaminants and can withstand corrosive gas or liquid environments, according to the company.

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 6 channels) and the NEMA housing enclosure.

Kaman Precision Products manufacturing facility is certified to AS9100 and ISO 9001. Kaman offers high-precision, electro-mechanical contract manufacturing at its 215,000 square foot facility, which has 150,000 square feet of manufacturing area and 230 employees.
