Smart radar sensors for rugged environments

10 January 2022

Turck can offer robust radar sensors for distance measurements of up to 15m for rugged application areas in factory automation as well as in outdoor or mobile applications.

The rugged 122 GHz devices, with protection to IP67/69K, are shock resistant up to 100g making them suitable for distance measurement in application areas such as in port logistics, where optical or ultrasonic sensors are unsuitable due to their limited range or disturbance factors such as dust, wind or light.

The browser-based Turck Radar Monitor parameter user interface is said to simplify sensor setup by means of the real-time display of the signal curve – especially when setting filters to suppress interfering signals or in complicated mounting situations. When mounted in direct proximity to each other, the FMCW measuring principle of the devices prevents any mutual interference between the signals. 

All DR-M30-IOL sensors are provided with IO-Link as well as an analog and switching output, in which the analog output can also be configured as a second switching output. In conventional applications, the devices can also be operated without IO-Link. Three different lens configurations enable optimum device selection according to the application, depending on whether a short and wide, a medium or a long and narrow detection field is required.
