Radar Sensors for Industrial Applications
We provide the opportunity to implement radar sensors from the Continental Portfolio for industrial applications. For this purpose, products from the area of driver assistance systems are used and particularly adapted for the application in the industry. Due to the original development for the automotive industry, they have a high robustness and maturity level. Simultaneously, the sensors are equipped with high-performance technologies at comparably low costs per unit. For ensuring the most flexible use of the sensors, a special software was developed. Thus, a fast and uncomplicated configuration is possible. With the help of these features, our sensors can be used for collision prevention or area monitoring. Besides, the sensor can capture speed and classify objects, further processed by other applications.
Our radar sensors at a glance:
- ARS408 – for applications in the long-distance range with a reach of up to 250m
- ARS308 – for applications in the long-distance range with a reach of up to 200m
- SRR20X – for applications in the close range from up to 50m, including an especially high open angle of up to +/- 75°
Typical application areas are:
- Object recognition and tracking
- Collision avoidance with static and moving objects
- Area- and distance monitoring, e.g. of dangerous or inaccessible areas
- Speed monitoring
Continental Radar PLC (SPS)
We offer a SPS unit for customers who do not need their own system development or want to evaluate and configure our sensors. The latter is compatible with each of our radar sensors and supports up to two sensors simultaneously. The windows-based system issues all detected objects, including the respective properties, via a DVI adapter. Besides, applications for the simple filtering of irrelevant objects are supported. Moreover, up to eight collision protection filters can be configured. By means of the latter, eight electronic last-relais can be controlled if a moving object is detected in the respective collision protection field.
Conti®Protect Belt Rip Detection
The Conti®Protect Belt Rip Detection (BRD) System serves as a control of conveyor belts in the industry as well as in the mining industry. Through sharp-edged cargo, longitudinal slots can be caused. When detected lately, they can spread across the entire conveyor belt. The commonly developed system by ContiTech and Continental Engineering Services helps to detect such damages at an early stage. For this purpose, conductor loops are vulcanized, transmitting a high frequency signal. If a loop is now destroyed, the signal is cancelled and the belt can be stopped by the system control.
Besides, we offer the following development services
- Feasibility studies
- Functional concepts
- Algorithm Development
- Software adaptations
- Tests and data analysis
- Prototype building
- Series development
