R-GAGE Q240 Radar Sensors Extend Range and Add an Analog Output

New extended range models of the R-GAGE™ Q240 Series Radar Sensor feature a long 100 meter range complemented by a very narrow beam pattern. They are available with an analog and a discrete output or dual discrete outputs.

Features & Benefits
  • Narrow sensing beam detects distant targets without detecting adjacent objects
  • Extended detection range enables earlier detection of targets traveling at higher speeds where response times can be critical
  • Analog output models are capable of providing location information and can be used to track objects

Rittal recently published a new piece of literature that breaks down SCCR (Short Circuit Current Rating) calculations. With the new codes, there may be a greater risk that many types of machines will not comply with them. Rittal provides a reliable solution to this potential risk with their RiLine 60 mm busbar system. It has cULus-listed approval with a consistent SCCR of 65 kW.
