OmniPreSense Corp. announces a new family of radar sensors in all-weather enclosures. The OPS724x family of radar sensors are meant for mounting outdoors in the harshest of weather environments.
The new radar sensors include both Doppler and FMCW versions capable of reporting speed, direction, and range of objects up to 100 m (328 ft.) away. The radar sensors are enclosed within an IP67 rated enclosure and operate over a -40°C to +85°C temperature range. Unlike other technologies, radar operates in rain, dust and snow and the IP67 enclosure protects the internal electronics from these extremes of weather.
The new family of products include the OPS7242-A and OPS7243-A Doppler radars and the OPS7243-C FMCW & Doppler 2D radar sensor. The family of sensors utilize the simple API found on other OmniPreSense radar sensors and are powered over a USB interface. A small form factor makes them easy to mount on poles or walls and an optional mounting bracket is available.
“We’re proud to announce the availability of these new radar sensors for mounting anywhere outdoors,” commented Rob Frizzell, CEO and co-founder of OmniPreSense. “They support Smart City traffic monitoring to improve traffic flow and provide for a greener economy.”
