Modern industries are in the pursuit of achieving the next level of optimization, and customizable, rugged sensors offer the best way forward.
FREMONT, CA: The Measurement Division of Kaman Precision Products has released its off-the-shelf, self-contained SC-2440 analog-output displacement sensor designed for repeated tasks that require a high amount of precision. It is a low-cost offering that requires no calibration and can be highly useful in automated assembly processes, OEM applications with in-built computing prowess, and any operation with a high degree of repetitiveness.
The temperature of the newly introduced SC-2440 can be continually monitored with the help of the built-in temperature sensors. The voltage output provided by the circuit, which could vary between 0.5 and 1.2 VDC, can also be monitored for active corrections that occur when temperature variations take place. The self-contained electronics, the fixed gain output, and the short circuit protection are some of the noteworthy features of Kaman's SC-2440. The sensor also comes with a submersible IP-67 casing that makes the sensor highly rugged. Another advantageous property of SC-2440 is that it has extremely low hysteresis and works fine with ferrous targets.
The design and structure of SC-2440 is exceptionally compact. Kaman also offers the option of customizing systems to meet the requirements of an application precisely. With sensor cable extensions, SC-2440 can get longer or a shorter cable, as needed. In-line connector splice and hermetic in-line connector options add a significant amount of flexibility to the sensor applications. Kaman also offers a range of special calibrations add-ons that can customize the SC-2440 to suit the requirements of clients. There also exist options to modify the target material and properties, such as temperature compensation. Kaman has also kept the synchronization option open and, thus, will allow the placement of multiple sensors in close proximity.
A leader in the production of high-performance measuring and testing technologies and systems, Kaman Precision Products offers a wide range of solutions. All of these solutions can be customized and engineered to fulfill the exact requirements of applications in which they are used.
