Donnersdorf (Germany) 28/01/2021. InnoSenT GmbH is adding a new motion detector to its portfolio. The IMD-2000 is ideally suited for simple contactless control applications in the areas of building technology, automation, and safety equipment. The sensor’s technical characteristics and design optimize the functionality of conventional motion detectors and facilitate their use.
The IMD-2000 also impresses with its design – its small dimensions enable the sensor to be installed in flat or narrow casings. The built-in signal-processing unit also saves customers additional development work in order to integrate the radar. InnoSenT offers the features at an attractive price. Due to the further development of radar technology in recent years, the company has managed to provide the sensor technology at a lower and lower price despite further technical enhancements.
The function can be used in many ways.
Radar-based motion detection is proving its usefulness in various industries. It opens doors, controls lights, or is part of security systems. But escalators or ticket machines also use sensors. The technology is also used to control lighting elements.
The sensor detects the movement of persons or objects by means of radar waves. This way, it is possible to control devices without contact and in an automated manner. In the field of building technology, this translates into a considerable boost in efficiency, since, for example, doors can be opened, lights switched on or the toilet lid can be opened only when necessary. As a security application, the system triggers an alarm when there are people in the detection area. The further developments are making motion detection increasingly interesting and paving the way for new possible uses. Among other things, there are little radars are in ticket machines to disable standby operation when approaching persons are detected.
State-of-the-art motion detection.
Motion sensors have been part of the InnoSenT product portfolio since the company was founded in 1999. But radar technology is advancing rapidly. The company felt it was time to optimise this simple and popular radar application. The newly developed product harnesses the knowledge gained from customers’ practical use, the technological state of the art, and the radar experts’ many years of development experience.
‘We are driven by the desire to make our own technology even better. This applies not only to product innovations, but also to already established radar applications. Because we now have completely new possibilities. This starts with the materials, concerns the technical performance, and ends with signal processing’, says Cyrus Nabavinegad, Product Owner at InnoSenT, in describing the driving factors behind the newly developed product, and he adds: ‘The IMD-2000 is the best example of this. Thanks to additional distance information, the motion detector offers greater functionality at the lowest-possible price. The system’s integrated signal processing also makes it attractive to a new customer group. It is a strong competitor to existing CW radar or infrared sensors.’
The 24 GHz system is equipped with common interfaces for better compatibility. The signal-processing unit also simplifies the use and integration of the radar component. The sensor detects even slow movements and determines objects’ and persons’ direction of movement and distance to the radar antenna. This information is outputted via a target list via UART. For easier configuration, InnoSenT provides an EVAL kit with a software GUI.
Practical challenges solved by radio location with ranging
The product’s technical highlight is the distance information.
This makes it possible to limit the detection area, which leads to a significantly improved false alarm rate in security applications, for example. As a door opener, the sensor can ignore cross-traffic or, for escalator control, disregard trains in further distances. This functional expansion of the small sensor now enables needs-based control for many applications.
New product line launched.
This is the second product of the new ‘InnoSenT Motion Detectors’ series (IMD). It is characterised by its considerable ease of use and the system level suitable for the customer group. Customers benefit from radar solutions based on the plug-and-play principle and that are easy to commission. They require little configuration work, which is usually limited to adapting them to customer-specific requirements.
This is due to the integrated signal processing, which optimally analyses the raw radar data for simple sensor applications. The system can be installed and connected in just a few steps. Customers use the outputted signals directly for trigger functions thanks to object or target lists as well as suitable interfaces. They hardly have to deal with the complex technology and data analysis. This makes radar more accessible to the market, so more and more industries benefit from the technology’s advantages.
