How Does it Work?

SafeGuard combines the high-resolution CIR sensor with embedded radar processing and control software, all accessible over a simple web interface.

SafeGuard software has six areas that can be created as detection zones, and each can be configured separately. This allows for independent warning zones and fail-safe zones.

Within each area, the you can configure key parameters to optimise detection and reduce the false alarm rate, such as break allowance, threshold data and allowance decrement. A fail-safe function is also available that will trigger an alarm if an object is not seen when it is expected to be seen.  

All zones can activate an industry standard ethernet I/O module (i.e. ADAM relay module), allowing you to choose what action should be taken, for example to prevent a collision or trigger an audible and visual alarm.

Smart sensing for the toughest applications

SafeGuard smart sensor is ideal for applications in challenging environments, where the use of other sensing technology may not be appropriate due to its limited performance in adverse conditions.

Typical applications include collision avoidance, intelligent process automation, proximity warning, ship height detection for bridges and detecting whether an object or vehicle has moved from a safe location. Ideal for application in ports and mines, on harbours and bridges, and in other industrial settings.  It enables you to increase the safety and efficiency of your operations through automation, with an off-the-shelf solution that interfaces with industry standard relay modules.

Underpinned by decades of experience in delivering radar solutions for mission critical applications, you can rely on Navtech's SafeGuard solution to increase the safety and productivity of your operations.
