The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, Inc., manufacturer of high-performance, precision non-contact position measuring systems, announces the availability of its KD-5100 differential measurement system, which provides resolution to a nanometer of positional change. With its proven 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 stabilization systems. Kaman engineers work closely with customers to understand their specific application and optimize the KD-5100 to meet custom requirements.
- Small package size – only 2 x 2.12 x 0.75 inches thick
- Manufactured to MIL-H-38534, with MIL-SPEC components used throughout the electronics module wherever possible
- 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.
