Banner Engineering R-GAGE™ Radar Dual-Zone Sensor Provides Superior Detection of Moving and Stationary Targets

Banner Engineering introduces a new Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar sensor for reliable detection of moving or stationary objects. Featuring a very narrow 11 by 13 degree beam pattern, the R-GAGE™ Q240 sensor is ideal for monitoring a specific area without detecting adjacent objects.

With two independent adjustable sensing zones, the sensor provides far and near proximity warning signs with the capability to detect objects over 40 meters away.

The R-GAGE Q240 provides easy setup and configuration of range, sensitivity and output with simple DIP switches, avoiding the training and complicated PC interface required for many other products. The sensor also features rugged IP67 housing to withstand harsh environments and ensure reliable performance in temperatures ranging from -40 to 149 degrees Fahrenheit. The sensor has no moving parts and a rugged design that resists high-shock and vibration conditions. Combined with its robust outdoor performance, the R-GAGE Q240 is a more reliable solution with lower costs for purchase and maintenance than traditional laser scanner solutions.

Our new R-GAGE Q240 sensor is extremely robust and provides reliable detection capabilities. Regardless of weather conditions such as wind, falling rain or snow, fog, humidity, air temperatures or light, the Q240 easily detects moving or stationary objects. This makes it ideal for outdoor applications, such as port crane collision avoidance and overhead crane monitoring.

For optimal outdoor performance, the optional snap-on all-weather shield protects against extreme weather conditions and helps shed liquid off the face of the sensor.
