Providing Safety

Radar sensors

What are safety radar sensors?

Safety radars from Inxpect can dynamically set detection and warning zones in addition to detecting operator access or presence in hazardous locations.

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.
