General Purpose

Kaman specializes in inductive, eddy current technology. Our sensors provide non-contact indication of linear position/displacement by outputting an analog voltage, or, in some cases, a current that is proportional to the distance between the sensor face and the target being sensed.

Eddy current technology requires an electrically conductive target. It does not need to be a grounded target, and performance is typically the same whether the target is ferrous or non-ferrous.

Kaman has numerous sensors based on our core technology. General purpose systems include the KD-2306, KD-2446, SC-2440, digiVIT and ThreadChecker.

Typical industry applications include: Automotive, Energy, Metals Production, Metalworking, Pulp and paper, Plastics and rubber, Semiconductor capital equipment, and more.

Kaman can customize our sensors to meet the application’s requirements, and we have a staff of experienced applications engineers ready to assist you in selecting the right sensor for any application.
