Sensor for broad range of weather conditions
26 March 2008
Banner Engineering has introduced the R-GAGE QT50R, an advanced radar-based sensor for close and long-range presence detection in a broad range of weather conditions. The QT50R features frequency modulated technology to accurately monitor or detect objects while resisting rain, wind, humidity and extreme temperatures.
The QT50R uses Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar to reliably detect moving or stationary cars, trains, trucks and cargo. The QT50R detects target objects up to 15m away and ignores anything beyond the setpoint. The IP67-rated sensor operates at 24 GHz in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) telecommunication band, with no special licensing required.
“The cutting-edge QT50R features FMCW true-presence radar paired with exceptional environmental resistance, allowing the sensor to operate in heavy precipitation and temperatures ranging from -40° to 65° C,” said Mike Dean, Banner Engineering product manager. “The QT50R is easy to configure and features bright indicator LEDs for simple status monitoring.” Dean adds, “The QT50R’s robust housing features a 30mm threaded mounting base to provide versatile installation options.”
The QT50R is ideal for outdoor and challenging environments, making it well suited for a wide variety of uses in locomotive, traffic control and many additional applications.
