Sensing system suited for harsh environments.

Kaman's SMT-9700 system uses proven inductive (eddy current) technology to provide high-resolution, non-contact, position/displacement feedback of virtually any electrically conductive target. It is suited for applications requiring high-resolution position feedback for control and has been proven in applications including optics positioning in photolithography equipment, XYZ stage positioning in atomic force microscopy and spindle position in the fluid-drenched environment of bearing race precision grinding equipment. The frequency response, linearity or combination of these can be varied to achieve the highest possible performance. When considered early in the design cycle, these trade-offs are easily managed through the proper choice of calibrated range, sensor size and target material. The company's computer modeling capabilities provide expected performance specifications before commitment to hardware. Kaman Precision Products www.kamansensors.com, 800-552-6267
