Inxpect sensors

S101A

Inxpect offers a variety of radar sensors and controllers to ensure safety in different industrial settings. The S101A, was their first safety radar sensor. This smart radar device sends 24 GHz radio waves and analyzes the signals reflected by both static and moving objects in the operative range. The S101A sensor has two configurable fields of view: a narrow FOV and a wide FOV.

S201A

The S201A sensor is another smart FMCW radar sensor offered by Inxpect, operating in the millimeter wave V band (60 GHz). It analyzes returned signals reflected by both static and moving objects in the operative range and has a dynamically selectable horizontal field of view and up to four safety areas. The S201A sensor also comes with a new option to detect static objects in the area where the restart prevention safety function is activated.

S201A-MLR

In addition to the S201A, Inxpect also offers the S201A-MLR, which supports higher speeds and longer ranges than the base S201A model. The S201A-MLR sensor has four independent detection fields with freely adjustable angles and a maximum total distance of 9 m. It can detect the access of one or more objects with specific RCS values, making it ideal for sectors like earth moving, railway, mining, and agriculture.

S201A-W and S201A-WL

Inxpect’s S201A-W and S201A-WL are two of their newest products, both with advanced field of view features. Users can choose from symmetrical, asymmetrical, or corridor FOV options. The S201A-WL model, in addition to the advanced field of view features, supports higher speeds and longer ranges (9 meter) than the base S201A-W model (5 meter). Like the other sensors, the S201A-W and S201A-WL perform motion and scenario analysis and communicate to the control unit of processed motion data and diagnostic information. They also come with the new option to detect static objects in the area where the restart prevention safety function is activated.

S203A-W en S203A-WL

The S203A-W and S203A-WL are two new safety radar scanners, that in addition to the advanced field of view, both have a vertical field of 12°. This makes them highly adaptable for Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs). They both come with a new static object detection feature that prevents machinery from restarting in the presence of obstacles.

The S203A-WL, in addition to the 12° vertical field of view, supports higher speeds and longer ranges (9 meter), making it ideal for sectors like, railway, mining and agriculture. It also includes a custom target detection safety function that can detect objects with specific RCS values.

 

Inxpect controllers

C201A-PNS en C201B-P

The C201A-PNS and C201B-P controllers are the most advanced controllers in the range, featuring a wide range of communication options and supporting the PROFIsafe fieldbus protocol. The controllers come with secure Ethernet connectivity for remote configuration and management, and local configuration options are also available via USB. The controllers also feature two dual-channel digital inputs and four output signal switching devices that can be configured as safety or auxiliary outputs. The dynamic setting of detection fields allows up to 32 configurations to be switchable in real-time.

C201A-F and C201B-F

The C201A-F and C201B-F controllers are similar to the C201A-PNS and C201B-P, but they support the Safety over EtherCAT® (FSoE) fieldbus protocol. The controllers also feature secure Ethernet connectivity for remote configuration and management, local configuration via USB, two dual-channel digital inputs, and four output signal switching devices that can be configured as safety or auxiliary outputs. The dynamic setting of detection fields allows up to 32 configurations to be switchable in real-time.

The S203A-WL, in addition to the 12° vertical field of view, supports higher speeds and longer ranges (9 meter), making it ideal for sectors like, railway, mining and agriculture. It also includes a custom target detection safety function that can detect objects with specific RCS values.

C202A and C202B

The C202A and C202B controllers offer both USB and Ethernet communication interfaces, providing local and remote configuration options. The Inxpect Safety Application allows the configuration of sensitivity levels, safety functions, size of detection fields, and the functionality of the I/O ports of the control unit. The controllers feature two dual-channel digital inputs and four output signal switching devices that can be configured as safety or auxiliary outputs. The dynamic setting of detection fields allows up to 8 configurations to be switchable in real-time.

C203A and C203B

Finally, the C203A and C203B controllers provide basic but robust control functionality for any Inxpect safety radar sensor. The controllers come with USB connectivity for local configuration, and the Inxpect Safety Application allows the configuration of sensitivity levels, safety functions, size of detection fields, and the functionality of the I/O ports of the control unit. The controllers feature two dual-channel digital inputs and four output signal switching devices that can be configured as safety or auxiliary outputs. The dynamic setting of detection fields allows up to 8 configurations to be switchable in real-time.
