The KMPS-1 pressure scanner was developed for both the wind tunnel and flight test market. It uses up to 4 KPM modules for a total of 64 channels. It is available with a number of different pressure port configurations for adaptability into existing systems. It also features an optional pneumatic purge.

The KMPS-1-64 is a 64 position pressure scanner with both high accuracy digital and analog outputs. This allows it to be used with both legacy analog systems and new digital systems. 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 also features purge and auto-zero capabilities.
The KMPS-1-64 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. Modules with 16 sensors each are individually replaceable by the user. This allows for different pressure ranges and modes (differential and absolute) in the same scanner. zero capabilities. The KMPS also has auto-zero capability
