Safety radar system
Safe radar system LBK
Reliable area monitoring in harsh environments
The world's first safe 3D radar system, LBK from Inxpect S.p.A., was developed for the monitoring of hazardous areas in harsh industrial environments. It detects the bodies of persons and in doing so monitors the protected area for access and presence. Using the controllers, up to 6 sensors can be combined in one application.
Reliable operation under demanding environmental conditions
The radar principle is resistant to environmental influences such as dirt, dust, sawdust, smoke, oil, humidity and light. This guarantees reliable operation of the machine even under demanding environmental conditions and avoids unnecessary shutdown.
They monitor the protected area for access by and the presence of persons. Even persons who are standing still are not really "static", and are therefore detected reliably by the sensor.
Thanks to the 3D radar principle, areas on steps or pedestals and behind non‑metallic shadowing can also be monitored.
Static objects permitted in protected area
The radar technology reacts sensitively to movements. However, static objects in the monitored area do not cause the safety signal to switch off. Static objects such as pallets, material containers and tool trays are therefore allowed to be placed in the protected area.
Simple system design
To guard larger areas, the controller can be used to combine up to 6 sensors in one application. The parameters of the system are adapted to the application using the easy-to-operate configuration software. With the LBK-ISC-Bus-PS PROFIsafe controller, the system can easily be integrated into a fieldbus. Detailed information about the status of the system is thereby also made available.
