SafeGuard is a standalone, smart sensing solution for challenging obstacle detection and collision avoidance applications in industrial automation.

A revolutionary standalone solution engineered to address the challenges of obstacle detection and collision avoidance in the demanding mining environment. Traditional sensor technologies often falter when faced with harsh conditions like dust, snow, fog, or steam. However, SafeGuard's smart sensing system, leveraging radar technology, remains robust and reliable even in the harshest of conditions.

Long-range, millimetre wave radar

Radar technology stands out as the most suitable choice for the mining industry due to its ability to penetrate obstacles effectively. SafeGuard, as an embedded feature of the Navtech Radar Robust Automation Sensors (RAS), provides a comprehensive solution specifically tailored for challenging environments. The Navtech Radar RAS sensors have a proven track record of operating flawlessly in all environmental conditions, boasting high resolution and rapid update rates that ensure faster and more accurate detections.

Configuring SafeGuard is a simple and intuitive process, offering users the flexibility to customise up to six independent zones within the radar’s field of view. Whether using a click-and-drag pictorial view, or numeric alignment with machine drawings and safety zones, users can easily adapt the system to meet their specific needs. This versatility makes SafeGuard not only highly effective, it also significantly enhances productivity and safety in mining operations.
