77 GHz radar sensor for surveillance and safety in harsh environments

January 28, 2015 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Targeting surveillance and safety in harsh environments, Sivers IMA is expanding its radar sensor portfolio by launching a 77 GHz radar sensor.

“The need for measuring distance, depth, speed or position in different products operating in harsh environments is growing and our radar sensors provide an excellent and cost effective way of doing that. ”, says Robert Ekström, CEO of Sivers IMA.

With its radar sensors, based on FMWC technology, Sivers IMA has helped customers fulfil their high standards in measuring distances and positions in tough environments. These include conditions such as fog, smoke or gas where mechanical alternatives, lasers, ultra sound or video-based systems don’t fulfil requirements. Infrastructure security and industry automation as well as level measurements in silos and tanks are examples where customers have successfully used Sivers IMA’s technology.

The latest 77 GHz sensor complements the existing sensors in the 10 and 24 GHz frequency bands. With its higher frequency, it delivers a signal with an even higher accuracy. Furthermore the small antennas at 77 GHz make the sensor especially suitable for applications where larger products don’t fit.

This launch is part of an initiative that Sivers IMA is undertaking to enable application developers to cost efficiently implement the features of radar sensors in their products.
