RADAR-BASED SMART SENSORS
Inxpect invents, designs, manufactures and distributes radar-based smart sensors, primarily for the industrial automation and robotics markets. Inxpect's LBK System was the first and is still the only safety-rated radar for industrial use in the world.
How Do Radar Sensors Work?
Radar sensors convert microwave echo signals into electrical signals to determine the presence of an object or person. A radar antenna emits a signal in radar waves that move at the speed of light. When these waves hit an object, the signal changes and reflects back to the sensor. When the signal reaches the sensor, it processes the changes in the waves to determine factors like position, size, shape, trajectory and speed.
Radar sensors are powerful with very few limits in detection. These sensors are not affected by light, darkness or temperature changes, and their sensing abilities reach wider distances than other types of technology. Given these operational capabilities, radar sensors are ideal for safety in automation and robotics.

Benefits of Investing in an Inxpect Smart Sensor
Investing in an Inxpect smart sensor offers value to all industrial automation spaces. With this technology, your operation can experience:
- Increased productivity: With Inxpect systems detecting disturbances in their fields of view, operators no longer need tedious restart processes with manual safety checks. Automation equipment will restart as soon as it's safe to do so, reducing restart time and keeping product lines moving.
- A safer work area: Inxpect radar systems offer flexible fields of view and varying detection fields with designated safety outputs. Operators can trust the equipment to stop as soon as they enter operating spaces, keeping them safe on the floor. Static object detection also safeguards personnel by preventing unsafe restarts.
- Enhanced flexibility: Inxpect systems consist of a control unit and up to six smart radar sensors, providing complete flexibility for your automation configurations. Introduce Inxpect systems to simple or complex scenarios and configure your setup through guided validation procedures and configuration reports.
- Improved cost efficiency: Greater productivity with Inxpect sensors leads to improved use of time on the floor, increasing the overall cost-efficiency of your operation. With critical safety processes handled by sensors, personnel can manage more high-value processes and product lines can produce more.
