Differential measurement system meets MIL-SPEC standard

A differential measurement system, which provides resolution to a nanometer of positional change has been introduced by the Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, a supplier of high-performance, precision non-contact position measuring systems.

With stable design, extremely small size, and low power consumption, the KD-5100 is ideal for night vision systems, precision telescope positioning, fast steering mirrors (FSM) for space-based and airborne applications, and image stabilisation systems.

Kaman engineers work closely with customers to understand their specific application and optimise the KD-5100 to meet custom requirements.

Featuring a small package size – only 2 x 2.12 x 0.75 inches thick – the measurement system is a good choice for applications where space is a limiting factor.

It is manufactured to MIL-H-38534, with MIL-SPEC components used throughout the electronics module wherever possible, and it features rugged construction, with a mean time between failures of better than 238,000 hours in a space flight environment and 55,000 hours in a tactical environment.

Kaman also offers the DIT-5200, a commercial version of the KD-5100 for applications where mil-spec requirements, size, weight and power consumption are not critical.
