Measuring distances from 0 to 8.5 m
Fast response time (5 ms)
Ideal for object with irregular surfaces
The radar sensor is also available in a configuration, where it operates similar to a light barrier. Via a special teach-in-algorithm the sensor learns the reflector position. After teaching the sensor monitors the reflector position. If an object breaks the line of sight between the sensor and reflector, the sensor output switches. The advantage of this configuration is that it is unnecessary for the object to reflect a signal back to the sensor. Therefore even randomly-shaped objects or radar absorbing objects can be reliably detected.
