Kaman Measuring Highlights DIT-5200L Noncontact Differential Measuring System

February 13, 2020 Perry Cohen

The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision is highlighting the DIT-5200L non-contact displacement measuring system. The system is designed for fast-steering mirrors, servo control position feedback, stage positioning, and angular displacement indication. It also assists with X-Y orbit position feedback and stylus position.

The DIT-5200L uses high precision eddy current balanced bridge technology for detecting the aligned/centered position of a conductive target relative to a pair of non-contacting sensors. For differential measurement applications, two precisely matched sensors per channel are positioned on opposite sides or ends of a target.

Offering differential for common mode rejection at an economical price, the DIT-5200L provides advanced precision measurement technology with exceptional resolution, repeatability, and nulling accuracy. Applications for the DIT-5200L include laser communications, optical stabilization, and magnetic bearings.

The DIT-5200L features enhancements to the company’s other DIT-5200 product, resulting in better resolution and CE Marking, according to the company. Capable of sub-nanometer resolution, the DIT-5200L provides thermal stability of ±.03 percent and high sensitivity – up to 10 volts per mil (V/mil), or 39 millivolt/per micron (mV/μm).
