The SMT-9700 eddy current sensor from Kaman measures positions / displacements without contact between the probe head and any conductive metallic target (steel, aluminium, copper) over measurement ranges from 0-100 µm to 0-15mm, with a resolution < 1 nm. The measurement is characterized by a very high frequency response (50 kHz), and is insensitive to the environment (wet, electro-magnetism, cryogenics, cutting oil, etc...). Another advantage: the SMT-9700 can manage up to 3 measurement channels simultaneously.

The analog output signal (DC voltage or 4-20mA) is compatible with any analog input of a PC, PLC or acquisition system.


The SMT-9700 system consists of a probe with integrated cable (13 models available) and conditioning electronics.


  • *Operating temperature: -196 to 200°C
      • Operating temperature : -55 to +105°C

Calibration and customization

The calibration of the SMT-9700 is performed in the factory, with the probe and the metal target of the application, under the measurement conditions (temperature, supply voltage, etc...). As an option, it is possible to specify the performances to be obtained, as well as the number of operating points:

  • resolution
  • linearity
  • number of calibration points
  • Sensitivity
  • bandwidth / filtering
  • temperature compensation


  • XYZ stage position feedback on atomic microscope
  • Z-axis position feedback in semiconductor photolithography equipment
  • Optical positioning
  • Position control of a laser engraving
