Technology report: More safety in harsh environments

3D safety systems provide a good option for reliably monitoring danger zones

Technology report: More safety in harsh environments

With the LBK safety radar system, Leuze has now added a new, innovative sensor system to its product range. This system implements an operating principle new to safety technology; as a result, it is also able to provide a solution for applications that previously could not be solved reliably using optical sensors.

In addition to use in harsh environments, the LBK safety radar system is used primarily for preventing unwanted restarts and for monitoring hidden areas. Users can adapt it to their individual requirements. The system consists of a controller to which up to 6 radar sensors can be connected.

In this technology report, Leuze senior safety expert Rolf Brunner guides us through the 3D system with radar technology, explaining the detection of objects using radar waves, and highlighting new applications that can be solved using the technology.
