Smart Sensor 100 SERIES
We don't shy away from the dirty work.
Optical devices can experience problems caused by dust, smoke, fluids or swarf generated by production processes.

S101A increases safety without compromising productivity.
Safety is a top priority for Inxpect. To make workplaces safer, we have developed a sensor that prevents accidents through the use of the safest technology in the world: radar.

Access protection
Access protection
First safety function: a 3D, configurable virtual barrier with two different detection fields, providing a secure signal to control machinery.
Restart prevention
Restart prevention
Second safety function: safe presence sensing to prevent machinery from starting as long as operators are in dangerous areas.
Access protection
Virtual safety barrier
The S101A sensor creates an invisible barrier that detects when an operator crosses it and enters a dangerous area, putting the machine into a safe condition to protect the operator.
Restart prevention
These sensors also work in the presence of optical disturbances
A radar sensor is extremely resistant to environmental disturbances. This makes it possible to work without false alarms in environments where there is smoke, dust, water and machining swarf.
Virtual safety barrier
SIL2/Pld certificates
S101A sensors are the first (and the only one to date) radar sensors in the world that have obtained SIL2 certification for use in industrial safety applications.
3D scanning
Radar functions natively in 3D, and can therefore protect dangerous areas volumetrically. Operators cannot elude detection by radar no matter how hard they try!
SIL2/Pld certificates
< 100ms
Response time
The system response time is less than 100ms, which reduces the area required to protect the machine to a minimum.
Smart Safety
Industrial safety at its best: Inxpect safety radars detect access or presence of operators in dangerous areas, allowing real-time dynamic setting of the detection and warning zones.

High-sensitivity detection

When a sensor detects an operator entering a dangerous area, it starts to function in high-sensitivity mode, which also detects operator micro-movements from breathing and prevents accidental machine restart.
