Precision Displacement, Vibration and Sorting Measurements with Kamanís Rugged RoHS-compliant  Proximity Sensors


Kamanís KD-2446 is a high-precision proximity sensor system that offers lead-free RoHS compliance in a cost-effective compact DIN package thatís easy to install. With a 10 kHz analog output and threshold-adjustable 3.3 kHz switched output, the KD-2446 provides a flexible solution for today's high-speed automated manufacturing and process control applications.


Kaman's reputation for high-performance sensors is reflected in the KD-2446 system, performing with 0.008 % FS resolution and 0.56 % FS switch point hysteresis. CE and RoHS compliance makes this new system ideal for OEM applications with worldwide distribution. Applications include displacement, vibration, sorting, and event capture.


The KD-2446 uses inductive, eddy current technology that measures without touching the target and offers excellent performance with both ferrous and non-ferrous targets. The system consists of two sub-assemblies: the sensor with integral cable and the signal conditioning or electronics module. Input voltage is variable from 12 to 24 volts DC, and gain is adjustable for up to 22 volts output (with 24 Vdc input).


Kamanís KD-2446 system comes standard with one of two production sensor configurations ó the 9C or the 5CM. Both of these rugged sensors are rated for continuous operation up to 400įF.


The KD-2446 system is in production and available immediately from Kaman.
