Kaman’s AMS sensors deliver high reliability and superior performance in high-pressure environments enhancing any condition monitoring systems’ ability to measure and monitor runout, speed, and changes in machine vibration profiles to help reduce risk and minimize damage and unplanned downtime due to unanticipated failures in the field.

Designed for operation in environments from 500 psi to over 22,500 psi, Kaman’s proprietary AMS, AMS-HP, and AMS-XHP precision sensing systems do not require a magnet and work with any ferromagnetic target.  AMS sensors detect target position through non-magnetic, conductive, and non-conductive barriers making leak-proof, penetrator free equipment instrumentation installations possible, and economical without special magnets.

Kaman Precision Products’ line of rugged AMS non-contact displacement sensors are IP-67 rated with hermetic options available.  For installation versatility, Kaman’s AMS sensors come in standard IP-67 rated threaded, flanged, AS4320 pressure port compatible, and bolt head style configurations with hermetic options available.  In addition to Kaman’s standard sensor configuration options, Kaman’s AMS sensors are easily tailored to meet semi-custom and custom OEM integration requirements.
