The KD-2446 high-precision proximity sensor system from Kaman Precision Products offers lead-free RoHS compliance in a compact DIN package that is simple to install. Featuring a 10 KHz analog output and threshold-adjustable 3.3 KHz switched output, the KD-2446 is a flexible solution for high speed automated manufacturing and process control applications.

The KD-2446 performs with 0.0008 percent FS resolution and 0.56 percent FS switch point hysteresis. With CE and RoHS compliance, the system is appropriate for OEM applications with worldwide distribution, including displacement, vibration, sorting and event capture.

Using inductive, eddy current technology that measures without touching the target, the sensor system also offers high performance with both ferrous and non-ferrous targets. It consists of two sub-assemblies: the sensor with integral cable and the signal conditioning or electronics module. Input voltage is variable from 12 to 24 volts DC, and gain is adjustable for up to 22 volts output, with 24 volt DC input.

The Kaman KD-2446 system comes standard with one of two production sensor configurations, 9C or 5CM. Both sensors are rated for continuous operation up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
