Radar Sensors

Radar sensors are ideal solutions outdoors, because wind, rain or fog cannot harm them. Regardless of external influences, the sensors can prevent port machine or forklift collisions, for example. 

With the help of the FMCW technology (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radar sensors such as the QT50R, Q120R or Q240R reliably detect moving and static objects.

LRS Product Series — IO-Link Radar Sensors for Level Measurement

The IO-Link-compatible sensors in the LRS product series are equipped with extensive analysis functions and are used primarily in filling level applications in factory automation where optical or ultrasonic sensors cannot be used due to limited range or interference factors such as dust, wind or incidence of light. They conform to the IP67/69K protection class and are ideally suited as a cost-effective alternative for demanding filling level applications in tanks and silos. 

Fast commissioning: Visualize sensor data and set IODD with IO-Link masters from Turck via the Radar Monitor without additional software.

Uniform operating logic: The LRS product series adopts the concept of the Fluid 2.0 sensor platform with capacitive buttons and translucent front cap.

The radar sensors in the LRS product series have been developed for level measurement in the range of 0.35 to 10 meters.

The control panel enables the direct output of distance, level and volume values for different tank geometries.

QT50R — High Range with Compact Dimensions and Robustness

The radar sensors in the QT50R product series are ideal for highly sensitive motion detection and reliable collision avoidance in demanding environments, both indoors and outdoors.

FMCW radar: Detection of moving and static objects even under extreme weather conditions.

Robust housing with IP67 protection enables use in harsh environments.

Easy setup and configuration of range, sensitivity and output via straightforward DIP switches.

Adjustable scan field: Prevents interfering signals from neighboring objects in the detection direction.

Q120R — Collision Protection at Ranges of up to 40 m

As a cost-effective alternative to conventional solutions, Q120R sensors are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. With a range of up to 40 m, they are the ideal solution to prevent collisions involving container cranes in port terminals or forklifts with a long stopping distance through permanent monitoring in real time.

FMCW radar: Detection of moving and static objects even under extreme weather conditions.

Robust housing with IP67 protection enables use in harsh environments.

Easy setup and configuration of range, sensitivity and output via straightforward DIP switches.

Minimized blind zones: Optimized distance detection enables the detection of very close and very distant objects alike.

Best Practice

Speed Control for Forklifts

Forklift manufacturer Linde Material Handling offers its customers a speed assistance system that makes transporting goods internally safer. The developers rely on the QT50R radar sensor to do this. The compact sensor detects hall roofs up to a height of 24 meters so that the control automatically reduces the speed when entering the hall.

Detecting Electric Vehicles

Charging columns for electric vehicles can be found in many inner cities, and at the same time the range of car-sharing services is increasing. To ensure that the charging stations cannot be blocked by improperly parked cars, providers can fall back on radar sensors. The QT50R detects vehicles close to a column. It is impervious to weather conditions – and its concealed installation is fully protected against vandalism.
