Control units for radar sensors

How do you use safe radarsystems?

Inxpect safety radars can dynamically set detection and warning zones in addition to detecting access or operator presence in hazardous locations. This is possible in combination with a controller for the radar sensor and the Inxpect software.

Unlike laser scanners, radar security is completely insensitive to dust, grit, sparks, temperature differences, etc. The Inxpect radar system is suitable for use in PLd (EN-ISO 1384-1:2015) and SIL 2(EN 62061:2021) applications.

C201 FSoE controller

Inxpect’s C201 controller has many communication capabilities and is the most advanced control unit of their range. The C201A-F and C201B-F controllers support Fieldbus Safety over EtherCat ® (FSoE). In addition, the controllers offer Ethernet.

The C201 FSoE controller can be linked to up to 6 radar sensors and, due to the PROFIsafe connection, can switch up to 32 different configurations in real-time. This ensures a dynamic setting of detection fields. In addition, the C201 controller has a muting function. This allows you to temporarily disable certain parts of your detection field. The controller also has a built-in emergency stop and restart signal.

There are two models of the C201 FSoE controller. The C201A-F and the C201B-F. The B model (C201B-F) features a microSD card on which login data and configurations can be stored and restored. The C201A-F does not have this feature.

  • Can be used in combination with Inxpect radar sensors
  • Two TYPE3 dual channel inputs, these can also be used as
    four single channel digital inputs
  • Four output signal switches that can be used in two ways
    • As safety outputs: two two-channel safety OSSDs
    • As auxiliary outputs: Four auxiliary outputs, which can be configured as
      signal restart feedback, error, or muting status
  • Through an USB input, configurations can be implemented locally
  • MODBUS and Fieldbus interfaces

C201 PROFIsafe controller

Inxpect’s C201 controller is the most advanced control unit in their line with many communication options. The C201A-PNS and C201B-P controllers support the PROFIsafe Fieldbus protocol and also offer Ethernet connection.

The C201 PROFIsafe controller can be linked to up to 6 radar sensors and, because of the PROFIsafe connection, can switch up to 32 different configurations in “real-time”. This ensures dynamic setting of detection fields. In addition, the C201 controller has a muting function. This allows you to temporarily disable certain parts of your detection field. The controller also has a built-in emergency stop and restart signal.

There are two models of the C201 PROFIsafe controller. The C201A-PNS and the C201B-P. The B model (C201B-P) features a microSD card on which login data and configurations can be stored and restored. The C201A-PNS does not have this feature.

  • Can be used in combination with Inxpect radar sensors
  • Two TYPE3 two-channel inputs, these can also be used as four single-channel digital inputs
  • Four output signal switches that can be used in two ways
    • As safety outputs: two two-channel safety OSSDs
    • As auxiliary outputs: Four auxiliary outputs, which can be configured as signal restart feedback, error, or muting status
  • Through USB input, configurations can be implemented locally
  • MODBUS and Fieldbus interfaces

C202 MODBUS controller

Inxpect’s C202 MODBUS controller has interfaces for both USB and Ethernet, providing local and remote configuration options.

The C202 MODBUS controller allows switching between 8 different configurations in real time. With the Ethernet connection, remote configuration and management is protected under cyber security protocols.

There are two models of the C202 MODBUS controller. The C202A and the C202B. The B model (C202B) features a microSD card on which login data and configurations can be stored and restored. The C202A does not have this feature.

  • Can be used in combination with Inxpect radar sensors
  • Two TYPE3 two-channel inputs, can also be used as four single channel digital inputs
  • Four output signal switches that can be used in two ways
    • As safety outputs: two two-channel safety OSSDs
    • As auxiliary outputs: Four auxiliary outputs, which can be configured as signal restart feedback, error, or muting status
  • Through USB input, configurations can be implemented locally
  • MODBUS interface

C203 USB controller

Inxpect’s C203 USB radar controller provides basic but robust control functionality for any Inxpect safety radar sensor. The C203 USB controller allows switching between 8 different configurations in real time.

There are two models of the C203 USB controller. The C203A and the C203B. The B model (C203B) features a microSD card on which login data and configurations can be stored and restored. The C203A does not have this feature.

1 controller for 6 sensors

An Inxpect radar system consists of a controller and up to six pieces of Inxpect radar sensors.

For example, the S101A radar sensor has a detection distance of 1.2 metres to a maximum of 4 metres.

One controller can control up to six radar motion sensors, with a total range of up to 15 metres.

The sensor in combination with the controller is suitable for use in SIL2 (EN/IEC 62061) and Pld (EN/iSO 13648-1) machine safety applications.
