Kaman Precision Products – Measurement Division is a worldwide leader in the design and production of high-performance, precision non-contact position measuring systems using inductive, eddy current technology. Our solutions can be configured, custom engineered, and manufactured to meet the needs of any application. A staff of experienced applications engineers helps customers select the appropriate solution.
Kaman Precision Products is part of Kaman Corporation, a diverse and highly creative company specializing in state-of-the-art technologies for government, industrial, and commercial markets. Founded by Charles Kaman in 1945, Kaman Corporation operates under the umbrella of Kaman Aerospace Corporation, a division of parent company Kaman Corporation.
Kaman Precision Products is headquartered in Middletown, CT and has manufacturing locations in Orlando, FL, Colorado Springs, CO, and Tucson, AZ. Its three divisions, Memory, Measuring, and Fuzing, produce advanced devices, instruments, and systems for extreme environments and critical military and commercial applications.
Kaman is the undisputed leader in the design and production of high-performance, precision non-contact position measuring systems. Examples of the latest technology that differentiates Kaman from competitors include the new digiVIT advanced digital variable impedance transducer, which features a self-tuning bridge that can work with nearly any sensor and any conductive target.
The improved ThreadChecker™ non-contact application-specific sensor recently released was designed to provide rugged, reliable verification of thread presence or absence in nearly any electrically conductive material.
Rounding out the products offered are general purpose sensors, high-performance sensors suited for particular applications, and extreme environment sensors for high pressure, low temperature, and high temperature applications.
Products & Services
Complementing our position measurement products, we offer customers convenient one-stop shopping for a range of accessories that will help them get their measurement technologies up and running quickly.
Kaman provides the right DC power supplies needed to run Kaman equipment, ceramic calibration spacers that offer superior performance compared to off the shelf metal spacers, as well as calibration fixtures and cables.
Kaman Precision Products manufactures a line of high precision sensors and systems specifically for extreme environment applications. These include three displacement measuring systems, all able to operate at high temperatures. The high temperature products were initially designed for NASA and the nuclear power industry — applications requiring high reliability, accuracy, and structural integrity. The same engineering skill and technology that went into Kaman’s +2,000°F microphone for measuring the dB level of jet engine exhaust noise, in the exhaust, went into the design and manufacture of this superior line of high temperature products.
Kaman developed advancements in the high temperature displacement sensor to measure steam turbine shaft runout in nuclear power plants. They are also used to measure nuclear fuel rod position/vibration, since these inductive sensors are unaffected by radiation and most other environmental contaminants.
This specialized line of high temperature sensors features precise operation at up to 1,000°F continuous and +1,200°F short term. They have resolution and repeatability comparable to Kaman’s conventional line of high precision systems. All of Kaman’s high temperature transducers are made with sealed, all laser-welded Inconel housings and use metal jacketed, mineral-insulated cable.
