Introduction

The complete range of inductive eddy current technology will be highlighted by the Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, Inc. at Sensors Expo and Conference, held from June 26-28, 2018 at the McEnery Convention Center, in San Jose, CA.

Digital DIT

Demonstrations of the digiVIT Digital Variable Impedance Transducer and new Digital Differential Impedance Transducer (Digital DIT) will be taking place at Booth #1217. The digiVIT boasts a self-tuning bridge that can function with almost any sensor and any conductive target. The transducer also features simple pushbutton calibration, temperature compensation, and zeroing. The embedded intelligence guarantees that all functions are accessible, without the need to connect to a PC to download a configuration file when changing sensors or performing high-level calibrations.

Kaman’s Digital DIT is intended to deliver a digital interface for high-speed eddy current measurement arrangements, with resolution in the micro-inch range, at bandwidths as high as 60 kHz. The custom sensors, signal processing, analog to digital converter, and custom calibration system transport each high precision Digital DIT sensor system. Different configurations allow tailoring of the measurement system to the application: each system is calibrated to the application to provide optimum performance and system validation.

The Digital DIT offers a standard serial peripheral interface (SPI) or direct access for high-speed communication performance. Utilizing a digital interface, such the Digital DIT provides benefits in measurement system integrity over analog systems. For applications that require a digital output, employing the SPI bus provides a standardized method to connect with most embedded controllers, and it can be multiplexed with other devices.

Kaman will also be displaying sensors based on its core technology. This includes a variety of general purpose sensors like the KD-2446, KD-2306, and KDM-8206, and high-performance sensors such as the SMT-9700, a high-resolution OEM analog unit available in 1, 2, or 3 channel configurations, along with Extreme Environment sensors for high pressure, low temperature, and high temperature applications.
