RADARPULSE - the mobile future of sensor technology
Distance - movement - area - speed - obstacle. Measuring tasks on mobile machines require robust yet precise technologies to detect the environment or the objects in it.
RADARPULSE sensors from Pulsotronic use FMCW radar technology in the 60 GHz range (continuous wave radar) and fulfil their tasks where conventional systems such as ultrasonic or laser sensors capitulate. Virtually insensitive to environmental influences such as temperature fluctuations or contamination, radar sensors enable distance measurements, distinguish moving from non-moving objects, detect velocities, locate objects in an area or fade out disturbing background information. The sensors detect objects at distances of up to 15m with an accuracy of up to 4cm - and that in an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C without significant signal deviation.
The extremely flat design with a height of only 15 mm allows an optimal adaptation to existing outer contours without disturbing built-up geometries. RADARPULSE sensors work with an integrated antenna. Application-specific adjustments of the measuring ranges or opening angles (10-140°) can be set via interfaces using firmware. Optional interfaces via CAN, IO-Link or SPE (ex works) round off the universal application profile of the sensors. In the near future, safety-relevant applications with IO-Link-Safety interface are also planned.
The sensory performance of RADARPULSE sensors predestines them for use on agricultural machinery, industrial trucks, construction machinery or also in the area of current flow monitoring and as a component of fleet management systems.
