IMST’s 60 GHz Radar Development Kit DK-sR60-12RLi is designed for high accuracy and high resolution distance measurements for industrial applications. The radar is integrated in a waterproofed housing. The dielectric lens allows a very narrow beam angle for a small measuring field of view. Different lenses can be mounted to adapt the radar to different applications. The module has a very low weight and is particularly cost-effective. This radar is optimized for precise range measurements, direction estimation or collision avoidance. Typical industrial applications are: Automation and positioning of cranes, process control and monitoring, tracking of goods or measurement of spatial parameters. The Developer Kit DK-sR60-12RLi comes with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) called SenTool. SenTool makes it easy to configure the sensor and to measure, visualize and analyze radar data in several different graphical plots.

The Developer Kit includes the GUI software SenTool.
