What are safety radar systems?

Radar systems make it possible to create cost-effective safety barriers around machines and robots.

Unlike laser scanners are radar systems unresponsive to dust, grit, sparks, temperature differences, etc. The LBK system is suitable for use in PLD (EN / ISO 1384-1) and SIL 2 (EN / IEC 62061) applications.

Zone safety

This application example shows how the Inxpect radar system protects operators working in highly automated environments.

Inxpect Safety Application

To configure the radar sensors, use the Inxepect Safety Application software. The software makes configuring and verifying the coverage area simple and easy.

The Inxpect Safety Application is a program that can be installed on any PC or Mac. It helps you easily configure the coverage spheres of Inxpect safety radar systems, configure I/O interfaces and system parameters, and perform validation. It is essential for installing any Inxpect safety system.

Use:

    1. System configuration
      It is easy to set all sensor and control settings and import machine layouts in different configurations.
    2. Status control of the entire system
      The application provides the ability to monitor the status of both the control unit and the various sensors, outputs and inputs.
    3. System validation
      The software can provide validation reports and verify the operation of the system.

Field Of View

Inxpect’s radar sensors offer a range of options when it comes to detection fields. The interesting thing about these sensors is that they can have up to four different detection fields, all of which can be individually adapted to the specific needs of a given application.

The Field of View (FOV), or field of view, of Inxpect’s radar sensors is a crucial concept that defines the scope of detection and monitoring. The FOV refers to the area covered by the sensor within which objects can be detected. For Inxpect’s radar sensors, the FOV is designed with a wide coverage to provide an extended detection range while remaining accurate.

As for the dimensions of the detection fields, they can vary depending on the specific model of the sensor. Some sensors can have detection fields of 4, 5 or even 9 metres long. Moreover, the individual detection fields are separately adjustable, where the width can be adjusted in 5° or 10° increments, ranging from 10° to 100°.
*With the S101 sensor this is not possible, there is only the choice of wide or narrow

The ability to customise the FOV and size of the detection fields allows users to fine-tune Inxpect’s radar sensors to the requirements of different applications, making the radar sensors versatile and flexible for use in different scenarios.

Symmetrical FOV

Asymmetrical FOV

Corridor FOV

The three main detection fields offered by Inxpect’s radar sensors are symmetric, asymmetric and corridor (corridor). Each of these detection fields has its own unique characteristics and application areas.

Symmetrical FOV provides equal coverage on both sides of the central axis of the sensor, which is ideal for applications where uniform monitoring of the area is desired.

Asymmetrical FOV, on the other hand, provides different detection angles on either side of the central axis of the sensor. This can be useful in situations where the need for monitoring on one side is greater than on the other, such as when monitoring a lane on a motorway.

Corridor FOV, as the name suggests, focuses on creating a detection field that resembles a corridor or corridor. This involves cutting off the sides of the FOV, which can be useful in narrow corridors or paths where only movements within the corridor are relevant.
