The LBK System is composed of three elements. The LBK-S01 are smart FMWC (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radar sensors that analyze the signals reflected by both static and moving object in their operative range. The LBK control unit powers up to six sensors via a proprietary safety CAN bus, and interfaces the entire system via programmable I/O ports safety relais. Finally, a user friendly computer application, the Inxpect Safety App, is used to configure the parameters of each of the sensors in a given system, allowing to set separate alarm and pre-alarm areas individually for each sensor, up to their maximum range of four meters. Guided validation procedures and the simple generation of the configuration report complete the installation.
Inxpect, the Italian company behind the LBK System, is dedicated to bringing radar-based technology to the industrial automation and robotics markets. In the rest of 2020, Inxpect will introduce new sensors and new control units, continuing to simplify safety installations, improve productivity while enhancing the level of protection for both operators and machines.
