Kaman Introduces New AMS Family of High-Precision Non-Contact Displacement Sensors

The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products announced the release of its new AMS family of high-precision non-contact displacement sensors.

The sensors are ideal for condition monitoring of rotating machinery in extreme-pressure environments from 500 psi to over 22,500 psi.

AMS sensors are designed to deliver reliability and performance in high-pressure environments enhancing any condition monitoring systems' ability to measure and monitor runout, speed, and changes in machine vibration profiles. Per the company, this helps to reduce risk, minimize damage and unplanned downtime due to unanticipated failures in the field.

Designed for a wide range of pressure environments, Kaman's proprietary AMS, AMS-HP, and AMS-XHP precision sensing systems do not require a magnet and work with any ferro-magnetic target. This design detects target position through non-magnetic, conductive, and non-conductive barriers making leak proof, penetrator free equipment instrumentation installations possible and economical without special magnets. With an RMS resolution down to 1 micron, and a standard measuring range up to 7mm, Kaman's AMS sensors are compact and versatile.

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 tailored to meet semi-custom and custom OEM integration requirements.
