Pressure Scanner

KMPS-4-64 Series
Patent Pending

The KMPS-4-64 is a 64 position pressure scanner with both high accuracy digital and analog outputs. The KMPS-4 electronics module can support up to four KPM-1-16 pressure modules each of which can be a different pressure range and mode. This allows the modules to be placed remotely from the electronics module for ease of installation in tight locations. The RS-485 digital output allows multiple scanners to be read over a single data bus. The Ethernet digital output allows integration into standard networks using TCP or UDP.

The KMPS-4-64 has a trigger input for low latency triggered acquisition. Due to the wide temperature capability it does not require heating or cooling in wind tunnel, flight test and other harsh environments. The pressure transducers are vibration and moisture resistant leading to extreme reliability.
