Person and Object Detection in Monitoring Zones
Person Detection in Production Areas
Some industrial applications require to monitor the absence or presence of persons in predefined zones. A remote controlled machine operation typically requires the presence of an operator close by, within visual range of operation.
A robot operation requires an immediate stop in case a person comes too close. The redundant detection of person(s) approaching can satisfy the safety integrity level (SIL) and provide the required MTTFd (mean time to dangerous failure) to avoid costly fencing and use Radar detection instead.
KY-RAY 3D.04.01 can perform these tasks and provide monitoring zone setting, self testing and zone alert signals in case of absence or presence detection.
Absence or Presence of Objects
The example of an airport apron makes this very visible - fuel vehicles, baggage conveyors, passenger stairs and gangways must not collide with any part of the aircraft, as otherwise meticulous collision damage analysis has to be performed. KY-RAY 3D.04.01 can be applied to monitor front, side and reverse driving operation and detect any objects in the wide field of view early, creating a warning only if things get tight.
The Radar sensor is maintenance free and works under all light and weather conditions.
KY-RAY 3D.04.01 can also be applied to monitor areas where cameras are denied for obvious reasons, to cater for personal privacy. Public washrooms are a good example. Large public places like train stations or airports operate a plurality of washrooms and monitoring the frequency of use and users allows to perform cleaning not on a scheduled basis, but on a cost-effective as-needed base.
Monitored Safety Perimeter
This is where the new high-resolution Radar sensor KY-RAY 3D.04.01 comes in handy.
The sensor detects persons and can distinguish humans from animals or leaves blown up in the air. False alarms are avoided and the sensor works with the same reliability in total darkness, independent from dark closing of potential trespassers.
KY-RAY 3D.04.01 connects via Ethernet/PoE with the building or site control, either local or in the cloud.
The sensor is maintenance-free.
Fenced and Unfenced Border Control
The border control Radar KY-RAY 3D.04.01 is a powerful tool for this application. Persons are clearly distinguished from animals or leaves flowing in the air, false alarms are avoided, with the highest positive detection rates.
The sensors can be positioned behind concealing intransparent covers, to prevent sabotage or vandalism.
KY-RAY 3D.04.01 Radar sensors work in complete darkness, indoor or outdoor, maintenance-free.
Private Home Surveillance
The KY-RAY 3D.04.01 home safety Radar monitors homes unnoticed, concealed behind intransparent covers, that can easily be penetrated by the Radar signal.
It detects and distinguishes persons from animals and leaves in the air to avoid false alarms. With a few sensors, a large home can be fully protected from all sides.
