Smart Sensor

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

The SafeGuard smart sensor can be configured to activate an output based on whether a detected object is within a defined field. These fields are user programmable over the simple web interface. Up to 6 independent zones can be configured to be any shape or size, within the field of view of the radar.

How Does it Work?

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.
