Vehicle Detection

The ability to reliably detect vehicles offers significant advantages for asset management, resource allocation, site safety and traffic control. Application needs and deployment requirements can be diverse, ranging from indoor, outdoor and partially protected deployments to in-ground, above-ground, and on-the-vehicle installations.

Vehicle detection solutions from Banner Engineering utilize a range of sensing technologies to overcome these challenges and can be used with our wireless products to simplify deployments in large areas or where wired infrastructure is not practical or cost-effective.  Our vehicle detection solutions are ideal for port machinery, traffic and parking, and mobile equipment industries.

Technologies

Radar sensors can operate in harsh outdoor conditions. Sensing functions are unaffected by wind, rain or snow, fog, sunlight, humidity and fluctuating air temperatures.

Radar sensors use Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology to reliably detect moving or stationary targets, including cranes, cars, trains, trucks and cargo in extreme weather conditions. They operate at 24 GHz in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) telecommunication band.

R-GAGE sensors allow for easy confi guration by using DIP switches; there is no PC required for setup nor installation. The adjustable sensing field ignores objects beyond the setpoint. Sensing distance, sensitivity and output configuration are adjustable.
