High-frequency radio technology! This is the engine of Inxpect, a great company from Brescia.
The products are based on smart FMCW radar that cores working in the ISM 24GHz band, license-free worldwide for indoor and outdoor applications. Sensing cores realized by Inxpect provide a low cost, yet technologically superior alternative to any other optical or radio-based motion sensors, thanks to Inxpect's proprietary hybrid analog+digital signal processing chain!
A SECURITY-UNIQUE APPROACH TO RADAR DESIGN:
- Dedicated, industry standard crypto co-processor in every communication board
- Intrinsic security of radar
Focus on Industrial Safety
LBK is the innovative radar system with active protection and certified SIL2/Pld, designed to monitor dangerous areas of a machinery.
• Detection Function: it places the machinery in safe conditions when someone enters the dangerous area.
• Restart Function: it inhibits the restart of the machinery if there are operators in the dangerous area.
The system is immune to optical disturbances like smoke, dust, shavings, machining waste, splashes.
The system control unit can connect up to six LBK-S01 smart sensors. Intervention of any single sensor results in the deactivation of the controller’s safety output. It is easy to configure the sensitivity settings, warning level and hazardous areas, as well as the auxiliary functions of the output relay.
This sensor is a smart FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radar device based on proprietary Inxpect detection algorithms. The sensor sends 24GHz radio waves and recovers motion information, analyzing the returned signals reflected by both static and moving objects in the operative range.
The communication with the controller is via Can bus.
The application allows the configuration and monitoring of the system, including the generation of the system configuration report and log download. Combining more sensors in the system, the maximum depth of the monitored area could be 4m (13ft). With six sensors aligned and an inter-sensor distance of 2.5m (8.2ft), the system can cover an area 15m (49ft) wide.
