OndoSense presents the new OndoSense reach radar sensor for distance measurement, object detection and positioning. With its great performance and reliability, it is ideally tailored to the market needs of industrial automation. The sensor combines millimeter accuracy and high measuring speed with a wide measuring range. And as one of the smallest distance sensors on the radar market, it is also suitable for confined spaces and short measuring distances. Thanks to innovative radar technology, the OndoSense reach measures reliably – even in challenging production environments with dirt, smoke, steam, rain, poor light conditions or rough surfaces. The OndoSense reach is thus perfectly suited for the automation of outdoor applications in agriculture, mining, transport and logistics as well as for factory automation in the manufacturing industry.

High performance even for demanding applications 

With its practical M30 housing design and a length of only 92 millimeters, the sensor is one of the smallest radar sensors for distance measurements, object detection and positioning. The OndoSense reach also offers a measurement accuracy of ± 2 mm and a measuring rate of 100 Hertz. As a result, the distance radar is also suitable for demanding applications. The measuring range of the sensor starts at 0.2 meters and reaches up to 40 meters. With an RS485 communication protocol, an analog current interface (4-20 mA) and three digital switching outputs (PNP/NPN), customers benefit from powerful industrial interfaces for data transmission to the programmable logic controller (PLC). 

Thanks to its dust-proof, jet water-proof housing (IP 67) and its resistant PTFE lens, the robust distance radar is also suitable for demanding production environments and outdoor applications. The high-performance radar sensor is ideal for distance or dimension measurement, object positioning or detection in agriculture, mining, transport and logistics, shipping and offshore, mechanical and plant engineering or in the energy sector.
