A microwave radar sensor is a device that uses microwaves to detect the presence of objects. These sensors are used in security applications to detect intruders.
Microwave radar sensors work by emitting microwaves and then detecting the reflections of those microwaves off of objects in their vicinity. By measuring the time it takes for the microwaves to return to the sensor, the distance to the object can be calculated. This information can be used to create a map of the area around the sensor.
Microwave radar sensors are often used with other security technologies, such as cameras and motion detectors, to create a more comprehensive security system.
Benefits of Microwave Radar Sensors include:
- Contactless detection
- Unaffected by temperature, humidity, noise, airflow, dust, and light
- Strong anti-interference ability
- Environmentally friendly
- Accurate and wide long-distance detection
- Multiple target detection
Senstar Ultrawave – Microwave Intrusion Detection Sensor
UltraWave provides a cost-effective means to protect areas of varying sizes, including gates, sally ports, and fenced/non-fenced perimeters. Configurable frequencies enable the overlapping of detection zones to eliminate coverage gaps, while the flexible coverage distance (5 to 200 m or 16 to 656 ft) makes it suitable for use in protecting both closed-in and open areas.
