Safe radar sensors are used where optoelectronic sensors reach their limits: rugged environments, such as outdoors or in material processing for example, can be monitored safely using PSENradar. That’s because radar technology (FMCW: frequency modulated continuous wave) ensures high availability even where there are external influences such as dust, dirt, rain, light, sparks or vibrations.
The underlying volumetric monitoring with a frequency of 24 - 24.25 GHz can be used up to SIL 2, PL d and Category 3, which is often a requirement in robot applications. The complete solution also has additional interfaces such as Ethernet, Profisafe and FSoE, so making it easy to use the safety radar sensor in retrofit applications.
In conjunction with the configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2, the safe radar sensor PSENradar offers a safe, complete solution for protection zone monitoring – including conformity assessment for the plant or machine.
